Swansea University and Swansea Council are committed to working in partnership to provide the infrastructure for the future with a specific focus on the development at Sketty Lane, Ashleigh Road and King George V fields, known as Swansea Bay Sports Park (SBSP).
In order to maximise impact and capitalise on the unique positioning of the site and the relationship between the University and its partners, our vision extends to co-location of sport, health, medical science and technology alongside the facilities to promote in-situ research and innovation.
The approach aligns with and builds upon the catalytic, City Deal funded, ‘Campuses project’, which sees a phase one delivery of 2000sqm research & innovation space at SBSP, with an aim to harness the unique capabilities in the Swansea Bay City Region to drive the growth of a globally significant MedTech and Sports Tech cluster, facilitating the levelling up of the health and wealth of the region and making Swansea a Life Sciences powerhouse.
This project is centred on the commissioning and delivery of a feasibility study and options appraisal that will lay the foundations for a major collaborative investment programme over the next decade, by providing critical insight, early appraisal of options and a practical roadmap along which the partnership can progress.
The primary focus of the work will relate to SBSP – as defined above – but will also consider opportunities for alignment and cohesion with other facilities and developments in the local area. This may include including linkages with St Helens, Singleton Hospital, Singleton Park, Bishop Gore School, Clyne Valley and the Promenade – the will see SBSP emerge as a Hub for community sport and activity, from which the local community and visitors can enjoy the full breadth of aligned offer.
Working in this way ensure we do not miss clear opportunities for economies and to ensure a cohesive strategy for the Region.
