People should welcome “visionary” plans for a floating island with up to 10,000 homes in Swansea, a man involved with Dubai’s Palm Islands has said. Malcolm Copson has been working with Swansea Bay City Region’s task force on how to revive the failed £1.3bn Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project. The renewable energy scheme was thrown out by the UK government over costs. But it is claimed the new scheme which would also have underwater turbines to produce electricity would be cheaper.
