Coed Darcy Urban Village
Coed Darcy Urban Village is a proposed development of 4000
homes and community facilities being built over the next
20 years - at a cost of some £1.2 billion.
Once BP’s only oil refinery in Wales, developers have produced
a huge plan to build a new eco-neighbourhood of
St Modwen, the overall developer, has taken over the
sprawling 1,000-acre site and work is well advanced on preparing
the ground for the first 300 houses to be built.
It is envisaged that the development will be “...a flagship
project to underpin economic development and investment
helping raise the aspirations for development and regeneration
The project has been led by BP in partnership with the
Welsh Government, Neath Port Talbot Council and the Prince's
Foundation for the Built Environment. However, St Modwen
acquired the site from BP along with liability for all remediation
