Plans also include an extension and improvements to coach parking on the site, along with environmental enhancements.

Cardiff-based DB3 Architecture & Design has been commissioned by the college to undertake a pre-planning consultation exercise for the works.

In a letter to residents, college principle, Mark Jones said: “You will hopefully be aware of Gower College Swansea’s intention to further develop its Gorseinon campus through extending one of its existing buildings, as well as the refurbishment of a number of existing classrooms.

“We are also planning to improve the existing traffic management layout, as well as widening the access onto Belgrave Road which we believe will help to reduce any congestion at the entrance and improve safety.

“Our plan is to shortly submit a planning application to the Council which, if successful, would allow us to carry out this work, but prior to doing so we are actively consulting with staff, students, stakeholders as well as yourselves, our local residents.

“Plans and drawings are available on www.db3group.com/gorseinon/ and you are invited to submit comments via gorseinon@db3group.com

“However, in addition we are holding a presentation evening on Wednesday 7 December at 6pm in the College (Gorseinon Campus) which you are most welcome to attend and where you can meet and speak to College managers, project managers, designers etc working on these proposals to find out more details and to get answers to any questions that you may have.”
