Welcome to our new Living Streets Group for Uplands & Brynmill. Uplands Living Streets is a volunteer-run local group, campaigning and collaborating for a greener, cleaner, happier & more walkable Uplands & Brynmill (Swansea). We are part of the UK network of Living Streets local groups, working to bring our streets to life, with more walking in people-friendly public spaces. If you’ve got an idea to make Uplands better, or would like to get involved in any of our featured projects, get in touch!
Uplands Living Streets is interested in how we can continue to enjoy the more traffic-free streets that we’ve got used to in lockdown, so that where we live is safer and less polluted for people of all ages, and people have greater opportunities to live, meet, shop and eat in pleasant surroundings.
The ideas Living Streets wants to progress in Uplands include a new Walter Rd cycle route, a 20mph speed limit through and around Uplands, a front garden planting scheme to ‘green’ our environment and help to nurture a sense of community, and reclaiming Gwydr Square from traffic, creating more space for people, better parking arrangements and supporting local businesses to thrive.
We need your views on these and any other ideas you may have to make Uplands the best it can be – environmentally, socially and economically. If you support the idea of a cleaner, safer, more walkable Uplands and would like to be involved in this new local group, or would like to join our mailing list, please get in touch!
