In their manifesto, the Welsh Liberal Democrats outline policies to

Coastal Housing is in the process of regenerating Swansea High Street by building an 'urban village'. The Urban Village will be developed in phases with a series of new courtyard spaces linking shops, offices, food and drink outlets and 76 affordable apartments. The project is being developed in conjunction with Welsh Lib Dems-led Swansea council.

Peter Black, Welsh Liberal Democrat South Wales West Assembly Candidate and housing spokesperson said:

"The Labour-Plaid government has failed on community regeneration and housing and their attempt to build affordable homes has been condemned by report after report because they have not delivered improvements. They promised to increase the supply of affordable housing by 6,500 but they missed that target.

"I speak to many people who want to get on the property ladder but find it very difficult. We will only tackle the affordable housing crisis by increasing the number of homes in Wales, so that prices come down and more homes are available."

Rob Speht, Swansea West Assembly Candidate said:

"There is a problem with access to affordable homes across Wales and I welcome what Coastal Housing is doing in Swansea High Street. This exciting development will increase the number of affordable apartments in Swansea and boost the regeneration of the area. The Welsh Liberal Democrats are committed to tackling the affordable housing crisis and seeing our town and cities regenerated."
