Welsh Labour's Gower candidate Rebecca Evans has written to Sainsbury's and Swansea Council after concerns were raised with her by local residents on learning that Sainbury's is pulling out of the planned new store in Gowerton.
The Sterry Road site was approved for a Sainsbury's store by Swansea Council in 2014, but news that the supermarket giant has now scrapped plans for a store has provoked concerns for the future of the site.
Rebecca Evans said:
"After concerns were raised with me by local residents, I have written to Sainsbury's and the local authority for an update on the future of the site.
"Even though it is fair to say that local opinion was divided on the desirability of the proposed new store, it is important that we have clarity on what the future plans are for the site. It is a location which, if used correctly, can create jobs and offer improved services for Gowerton residents."
