The Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project will see major investment into the redevelopment of the town's seafront, safeguarding the town and its infrastructure from the threat of the sea and predicted climate change for years to come. The project extends over a 2.3mile length of promenade from Rhos Jetty in Rhos on Sea, eastwards to Beach Road, Old Colwyn.
The project combines the renewal of coastal defences with regeneration improvements to the promenade, creating a modern, sustainable and attractive waterfront, which will be an asset to the local community and an attraction for visitors.
The first phase of works has seen the construction of Porth Eirias and the creation of a permanent beach as part of the coastal defence works. The next phases will see the continued improvement of coastal defences and regeneration of the promenade.
As part of Conwy County Borough Councils commitment to sustainability the new Porth Eirias development is designed to achieve a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Method) standard of excellent. The details of Porth Eirias can be found below, and more information on the BREEAM assessment can be found on their website:
Ground investigation work is to be carried out on sections of the beach and promenade between Porth Eirias and the Victoria Pier, in preparation for the next phase of the Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project.
