Approval for major projects welcomed
The Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council has welcomed planning
approval for two significant schemes in the county borough.
The Council's Planning and Development Control Committee has
approved planning applications for the new sports complex on
Aberavon seafront and also a new multi-storey car park and retail
development for Neath town centre.
This will now allow suitable contractors to be selected with a
view for construction to start on both projects in the first
quarter of next year.
Cllr Ali Thomas said: "Despite austere times, I am delighted
that we are now in a position to start going forward with these two
major projects which are crucial to enhancing our strategy and
vision for regeneration in the county borough. I'm sure the
citizens we represent will welcome these exciting developments and
we can now look forward to seeing them now becoming a reality."
