In October 2016, Mumbles Community Association (MCA) secured outline planning permission to build a two-storey community building in Underhill Park, Mumbles.

The proposed building includes changing rooms, a multi-purpose hall, meeting rooms, offices, public toilets, a bar, kitchen and gym.

MCA Chairman, Simon Tse, said:

“This is a great achievement for the Mumbles Community Association charity, following close on six years of activity by a group of local volunteers.  But now the work starts in earnest in moving to the next stages of both fundraising and finalising the designs.”

The planned community building has been designed to sit adjacent to the car park at the bottom of the access off Newton Road.

However, the proposals have subsequently been put on hold, pending agreement from City & County of Swansea to lease the Park to the Community Association.  This agreement needs to be in place to enable MCA to seek grant funding for the new facilities.
