The Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project was initiated to address the condition of the existing coastal defences along the waterfront in Colwyn Bay.
The majority of the existing defences date back to the turn of the 20th century. The decline in beach levels has left the defences exposed in many areas, and the increased severity and frequency of storm events combined with the threat of climate change posed an ever increasing threat to properties and infrastructure along the waterfront and the Town itself. The decision was made to vastly overhaul the existing flood defences to provide long lasting and effective coastal protection for the town and its inhabitants. Due to the extensive work required, it was decided that this could be used as an opportunity to both protect the community and its infrastructure and also enhance it by creating a promenade that would attract both local residents and visitors, providing a boost to the local economy.
