But one of the most important elements in the success of the LSVP was the emphasis that was placed on community involvement.
They helped to ensure that, as Prince Charles put it in 1981, the LSVP became a "remarkable work of environmental renaissance".
It is noteworthy that the LSVP made no direct connection between the area's industrial past and its future development.
Almost inevitably, therefore, destruction was the forerunner of reclamation and, in order to achieve this, the LSVP report recommended "vigorous action".
It is because of this that a project based at Swansea University is now exploring new ways in which the industrial heritage of the Lower Swansea Valley can be used to continue the process of economic and social regeneration begun by the LSVP. This project, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, brings together a range of partners in a number of different of events and initiatives.
Coming up next, on March 5, is a free, city-wide, copper festival which, among many other things, will be marking the 50th anniversary of the LSVP. It is only right and proper that Swansea celebrates the quite extraordinary contribution it made to the universal problem of how communities come to terms with post-industrial decline and dereliction.
