A £1.3 MILLION renovation of the former BBC studios in Swansea has taken a step forward.

The investment in Dylan Thomas House will create modern recording studios and office space for up to 23 creative workers.

The University of Wales Trinity David (UWTSD), which leases the three-storey building from Swansea Council, was planning to take forward the project after securing £900,000 of European funding.

But a report before Swansea cabinet members said the scheme had been delayed and that the council had been approached by the Welsh Government to get involved to avoid the risk of UWTSD losing the grant.

Joint venture talks got underway, and the cabinet has now agreed to deliver the revamp in partnership with the university.
