Asbri Planning Ltd, acting on behalf of Kier Construction, the Council’s appointed contractor, will undertake pre-application consultation in respect of the proposed retail development at Water Street, Neath.

Your views sought on Neath Town Centre retail scheme

The Council is intending to apply for planning permission for the following development: eight retail units and one first floor unit together with an associated service yard, plus hard and soft landscaping on land at Water Street.

Kier Construction has been chosen as the contractors for the proposed retail scheme which, if approved, would form the next phase of the redevelopment of Neath’s town centre.

Prior to formal submission to the Local Planning Authority and in line with statutory requirements, the proposal is subject to pre-application consultation.

Computer Facilities are available now to view the application online at Neath Library, Victoria Gardens, Neath, with the opening hours as follows: Monday – Wednesday 9:00am – 18:00pm, Thursday 9:00am – 17:00pm, Friday 9:00am – 19:00pm and Saturday 9:30am – 13:00pm. The library is closed on Sundays.

The Council’s proposal is to build retail units on the site of Neath’s now demolished old multi-storey car park to provide space for new national and independent retailers to complement those already trading in the town.

Anyone who wishes to make representations about this proposed development must do so by the 7th December 2018 and we would encourage you to e-mail these to, alternatively please download the attached forms, and send them to:

Asbri Planning Ltd, Suite D, 1st Floor, 220 High Street, Swansea, SA1 1NW.
