Urban village plans explained

3 September 2012 Last updated at 09:43 BST

Plans for a sustainable urban village near Swansea have been given a boost with Welsh government approval of funding for a feasibility study.

It would be situated on a 100-hectare greenfield site at Felindre where the National Eisteddfod was held in 2006.

The study will test plans to create a mixture of homes, job and community facilities.

Roisin Willmott, the National Director of Royal Town Planning Institute Cymru, explained the concept behind the idea to Oliver Hides and Peter Johnson of BBC Radio Wales.
