Resident Comments Invited On Plans For Old Colwyn Promenade

Resident Comments Invited On Plans For Old Colwyn Promenade

Sunday 5th Dec 2021

Plans for final coastal defences work and promenade improvements at Old Colwyn promenade have been published for public consultation. 

Conwy County Borough Council has published the proposals to finish improving coastal defences along Old Colwyn promenade, with an opportunity for the public to comment before a planning application. 

The proposals include raising the promenade by 2m and adding more rock barricade to protect the Victorian seawall. Improvements to the public space include widening the promenade to give more space for pedestrians and cyclists, a new accessible beach ramp and an outdoor classroom area.  

Councillor Greg Robbins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transportation, said, “These proposals show the remaining work which will protect Old Colwyn promenade for the future. We want to provide as many additional benefits as we can to improve the promenade and beach access for residents and visitors. It's important to be clear that we still need funding to complete this work, but having a fully designed scheme with planning permission will put us in a good position to secure funding.”  

Residents can find out more about the proposals and view the plans at Have your say – Old Colwyn coastal defence - Conwy County Borough Council and at Porth Eirias on the seafront. Comments should be sent by Tuesday 30 November.
