Kelvin Rees, Coastal’s Head of Development said: “We are pleased to potentially be bringing much-needed affordable apartment homes in Swansea Waterfront area.”

There have been a number of proposals for the site stretching back to 2006, with the most recent for a 99-bed care home in 2022, however no plans to date have got off the ground.

The current proposals are open for pre-planning consultation with Asbri Planning until 9 February.

Coastal Housing have had big plans for the city, being involved in several major regeneration schemes in city, particularly on High Street, where they have recently purchased the former Kings Arms Tavern.
