Swansea Market Vision and Framework

Vision for a new community on a former brownfield site

Client: City & County of Swansea Council

Location: Swansea City Centre

Service: Urban Design

The Urbanists supported the Council in preparing a high level review of the potential of Swansea's Indoor Market. 

As part of this process The Urbanists undertook an in-depth review of the factors which underpin a successful contemporary market. Examples of best practice could be found in markets in: Belfast, Bury, Leicester, Leeds and Borough Market.

The findings of these studies were fed into a property overview of some of the options open to the Council in terms of future potential.
