Project overview

Mumbles Pier has dominated Swansea Bay’s landscape for over 100 years, and is now halfway through a dramatic multi-million pound renovation project. The Pier is one of Swansea’s most iconic and recognisable landmarks, and is one of only six surviving iron piers in Wales and is currently Grade II listed.

Steeped in a rich history, the Pier conveys a triumph in Victorian architecture. Since 2008, GJP have been the lead consultant in securing multiple planning permissions and listed building consent approvals for the site


GJP secured planning permission for the redevelopment of the site, adjacent to the Gower AONB, for a redevelopment scheme that includes residential, tourism, commercial/retail use including hospitality, gallery, hotel/visitor accommodation, residential apartments, under-croft car parking, amusement arcade, function room and a new pedestrian boardwalk.

Listed Building Consent was secured for works to the Pier itself including the erection of 2 new pavilion buildings, the refurbishment and adaptation of the former off shore lifeboat house for restaurant use, and the replacement of the existing access bridge to the former offshore lifeboat house

Geraint’s understanding and knowledge has been key in obtaining the necessary consents on what has been very contentious application, adjoining an area of outstanding natural beauty, a conservation area and listed buildings & structures. He has driven the process, coordinating a team of architects, environmental and cost consultants in a very pro-active way. I strongly doubt that we would be in a position with our current planning consents without his involvement in the project.
