Mayals has a population of 2,700 and lies approximately six kms west of Swansea city centre with the neighbouring wards of West Cross, Bishopston, Fairwood, Killay South and Sketty.
It is the fifth smallest ward population in Swansea and has a high percentage of 65-plus age groups.
Mayals ward is located on the western side of Swansea Bay, mid-way between Swansea and Mumbles, and embraces the Clyne Valley and part of the Gower Area Of Outstanding Beauty.
This area has attracted the development of large detached homes since Victorian times and remains one of the most affluent and sought-after housing areas in Swansea.
However, it also supports a small residential caravan site at Mill Gardens, the occasional apartment block and early Victorian two-storey terraced properties on Mumbles Road.
The majority of the area’s housing stock was developed between the 1950s and 1970s.
