IMPACT AREA

DEVELOPMENT & INVESTMENT

We are focused on how people, communities and businesses can get more involved in shaping the future of our region, including the design and construction of major developments and strategic investments like the Swansea Bay City Deal.  How can we make sure that major regional projects are delivered in a way that provides economic, social and environmental benefit over the long term?  And how can we ensure that the well-being of people and planet is at the heart of decision-making?

CONSTRUCTION & DEVELOPMENT MEMBERS

As well as networking opportunities, important roundtable discussions, and the ability to get their voices heard at a regional level, we support our members in the Construction and Development sector by advocating strongly for more in-region procurement by the region's anchor institutions.  Procurement is one of our six impact areas, because we believe major spending in South West Wales should stay in South West Wales - so that small, medium and larger businesses in the regional supply chain can create jobs, grow and support their communities.  We also host events and conversations about development, property, sustainable development, and we host the Development & Investment Zone at the annual city centre conference in Swansea.
