The £500m Baglan Bay site, located within close proximity of the M4 between junctions 41 and 42, forms part of the additional 2,500 acres of disused BP Brownfield land purchased by St. Modwen in 2009. This purchase increased St. Modwen’s landholding in South Wales to 3,500 acres, making it the largest private owner of Brownfield land in South Wales.
St. Modwen, along with project partners Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, expect the proposed development to create up to 7,000 jobs and dependent on approval of current planning submissions and market conditions, expect it to be complete after 25 years.
St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, in partnership with Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, is re-developing 1,050 acres (gross) of land, at the former BP Baglan Bay petrochemicals plant near Port Talbot, into a £500m employment site over the next 25 years. This major regeneration project will transform this disused Brownfield site, in specific development phases, into a business community comprising of up to 4 million sq ft of new employment accommodation with the potential to create up to 7,000 jobs locally.Baglan Bay is part of St. Modwen’s flagship £2.2bn linked development alongside Coed Darcy and the new Bay Campus for Swansea University. It will completely transform key areas of the Swansea Bay City Region within Neath Port Talbot and Swansea.
