Caerleon campus planning application: USW response

A University of South Wales spokesperson said:

"We believe that refusal would have significant ill effects for the community, denying residents the benefit of a major funding injection for local services from development of the disused site.

"The University's commitment to the future of the city and the region is unchanged. Refusal would be a decision with potentially significant implications to the funding of the Newport Knowledge Quarter, a key strategic aim we share with the Council.

"But there will be no kneejerk reaction: we will now review the detail of the recommendation and our options for next steps."
