He comments: “Today’s announcement is great news for the Swansea Bay City Region and all those involved with the City Deal. There is real momentum now behind the regeneration in this area; the City Deal should deliver far reaching benefits for all of South West and West Wales.  However, we now need to see a swift decision from UK Government on the tidal lagoon along with a commitment to improving connectivity West of Swansea to enable the true transformation required to benefit future generations.”
