Independent review launched into Swansea Bay city deal

The Welsh and UK Governments have ordered an independent review of the Swansea Bay city deal.

The £1.3 billion plan, which was launched 18 months ago ago by the First Minister and the Prime Minister, aims to create more than 9,000 jobs over 15 years around technology and science.

But the two governments say they have now ordered a review to cover due diligence and governance, in relation to all elements of the deal and its implementation.

In a joint statement, the UK and Welsh Governments said all partners remained “committed to the success of the deal”, adding that work on individual projects will continue in parallel with the review.
