Jonathan Joseph's Brent Cross and Russell Beresford's Parc Tawe: Councillors say Hammerson cares "Sod All"

Link to South Wales Evening Post

"THE redevelopment of Swansea's Parc Tawe has been given the go-ahead by councillors — despite a warning from the firm behind the project that some of the conditions being imposed on it are unacceptable.

"Russell Beresford, from developers Hammerson, said it had an interest in making sure the city centre did well [ha!], and was prepared to accept other planning conditions but not condition four, adding that a revamped Parc Tawe would support some 300 full time equivalent jobs.

But councillors decided to keep the contested condition in the planning approval — and had some harsh words for Hammerson.

Ward member David Phillips sarcastically congratulated Hammerson on 'getting off their backsides' and finding possible tenants for a revamped Parc Tawe but accused them of doing 'sod all' for the city centre when they were responsible for it as agents."
