If You Believe in Swansea, Believe in the Vision

25th Apr 2017

With the signing of the City Deal, Swansea Council has released a 3D flythrough that provides an inspiring vision for our city centre.

The proposals deserve your wholehearted support. They offer a real chance to create a more inspiring place to spend time, a thriving local economy, and a new identity for Swansea, as the city and the region enters a new era of investment and opportunity. Against the backdrop of Brexit and Austerity Britain, Swansea is choosing to focus on the future – and we can too.

Sure, the council is not perfect and we all have our gripes. But the role of leadership is to put forward a compelling vision for the future, and this Labour council has done that. With collective buy-in and a sense of shared vision, we have the opportunity to transform our city and our own fortunes.
It’s easy to be cynical and critical. It takes zero effort to point out all the reasons the plans won’t work, to bitch and moan about everything that’s wrong with the place. What takes courage is to have hope. To have positive expectations for the future, and to keep working at them until they materialise. That’s an empowering choice, and it’s ours to make.

I’m excited about the future of the city”
