Work begins on Penrhyn Bay coastal defences

Work to improve Penrhyn Bay’s coastal defences begins next week, Conwy County Borough Council has announced.

The scheme involves building a T-shaped rock groyne and adding shingle to the beach to protect the existing defences and the promenade.

The beach will be closed to the public for this work to be done safely. Work is expected to take 10 months, but sections of the beach will be reopened for public access as they are completed.

There will also be improvements to public spaces, with a resurfaced promenade area, new seating and handrails. Parking will be relocated to opposite the entrance to Rhos Golf Club, with a new pedestrian and cyclist crossing point between Maes Gwyn Road and Pendorlan Road.

From Monday 23 January, the Penrhyn Bay promenade path will be closed for 5 months. The footpath and cycleway will be diverted and there will be traffic management along Glan-Y-Mor Road.

Cllr Goronwy Edwards, Cabinet Member for Environment, Roads and Facilities – Infrastructure said: “Coastal defences are important to protect our communities from the increased threat of climate change, sea level rises and storms. This work is an integral part of the Council’s coastal defence strategy, and will benefit the residents of Penrhyn Bay for a long time to come.”

The work, which will cost £7.5M, is 85% funded through the Welsh Government's Coast Risk Management Programme, with Conwy County Borough Council funding the remaining 15%.
