AN old filling station in Swansea could be yours for £250,000.

The former Terminus station in Sketty has planning consent for a two-storey building comprising four flats, a penthouse, and a shop, with some onsite parking.

Tim Kostromin, of selling agents Dawsons, said it was a popular location.

“We have had some interest because of where it is,” he said. “But we haven’t got any formal offers in yet.”

The mixed-use development with consent is a scaled-down version of a previous application put forward for the Eversley Road site.

The original application was turned down by Swansea Council and then again by a Welsh Government-appointed planning inspector on appeal.

The filling station site, which is close to Sketty Cross, has been vacant for years although demolition work has been carried out.

Fuel tanks remain in the ground, but they will be removed prior to any exchange of contracts.

The triangular plot of land was branded an eyesore by some nearby businesses before a tidy-up earlier this summer.

Speaking in May, Ruth Gilligan, the owner of Gilligan’s Restaurant opposite, said customers would often comment on the state of the land.

She added: “People walking past just stop and shake their heads.

“I am pleased something is going to be built there – anything is better than it is now.”
