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?
