An innovative and sustainable new ‘15-minute neighbourhood’ is being re-imagined to meet the current and future needs of the Swansea Bay region.

St. Modwen, site owner of Coed Darcy, is bringing forward a revised masterplan for the site, working closely with residents and Neath Port Talbot Council.

We know that the existing community is keen to see new facilities at Coed Darcy, and our revised masterplan sets out a sustainable and deliverable plan to bring these new facilities to the area as soon as possible, in consultation with residents.

The pandemic has also changed the way people think about their living space, community areas and achieving a healthy work-life balance. Central to our revised masterplan is the creation of up to 2,000 new sustainable and low-carbon homes, extensive green spaces, a school, community facilities and active travel networks.


Residents and local stakeholders are invited to help shape the future of Coed Darcy. St. Modwen held some drop-in community consultation events in the summer, which have helped to inform the masterplan, and a Pre-Application Consultation (PAC) on the new masterplan is now underway.

Details of the proposed masterplan and how to submit comments are available online here and a full set of draft planning application documents can also be viewed at Skewen Library (SA10 6LH). 

The PAC period will run until 10 November 2021 and St. Modwen will then report on the feedback received and how this was considered in shaping the masterplan. 

The community will be able to provide comments again once the planning application is formally submitted to Neath Port Talbot Council.

We are looking forward to this next stage of the process and welcoming further comments on the new masterplan and proposals.  We will also be hosting some design workshops with residents as a further opportunity to gather views from the local community about the character and identity of Coed Darcy.   

Any questions about the masterplan and consultation process can be sent to
