Our Priorities

Showing you 1 to 3 of 3 ideas of our priorities
Route the NAT 117 bus via Pennard to link up the Coast
The little-used NAT operated 117 bus service, subsidised by the Council, links Killay with Oxwich, Scurlage and Horton. A small diversion from the route - down Vennaway Lane and through Pennard to Pennard Cliffs - Three Cliffs Coffee Shop - and back - would enable direct bus service from Pennard to Oxwich, Horton and Scurlage with connections to Rhossili. It would be an invaluable asset to the whole area and also help to make this bus route - than often runs empty - much more profitable. It would also give Pennard a direct bus link to/from Killay.

Notes: (i) As this service already connects with the main 118 route, those boarding the 117 in the Gower Villages have to change to the fast 118 service to get to Swansea anyway, so overall journey times for Swansea bound passengers from SW Gower would not necessrily be compromised by a diversion via Pennard, as Swansea-bound passengers would have already changed bus.

(ii) I've got about 300 signatures on a petition at the Pennard carnival supporting this from some years ago, but it was when First Group were 'caretaking' the franchsie after Veolia withdrew. Now time to re-launch the idea. But what do you think? I would definitely use it!
