That will now trigger off a chain of events in the plan process which could see the detailed and final draft going before councilors in the early part of the new year.

It would mean, Swansea Rugby Club and Swansea City Football Club being able to move into their shared home for the start the 2002/03 season.

The new 25,000-seater sports stadium will be accompanied by a mixture of shops, a 60-bed hotel and restaurants, a health club, a 14-screen screen cinema, a 10-pin bowling centre, a petrol station and parking. The authority is now awaiting an environmental impact assessment report from the developers.

That will include a report on the likely impact on traffic in the area. Planners are expecting to receive it by the end of the month and they will then start a three-week public consultation period.

Following that Swansea Council has 16 weeks to determine the application but is confident that it will do so long before then. Swansea development director Craig Anderson said “It is significant progress.’ he confirmed that everything was still in place for a stadium opening in time for the 2002/03 season.

Miller Developments claims that the scheme will not affect the local environment. “The mixed use proposed is located within the urban areas in previously developed land and is accessible by alternative modes of transport,” it said.

The company is confident the scheme will fit the bill of delivering an important regional facility, including a new stadium for the Swans and the Whites.
