“Everyone” urged to have their say on plans for Colwyn Bay town centre as new CGI vision video released

North Wales news and information

A video showing what the future could hold for a seaside town centre has been released along with a major consultation on its future.

The video shows how a tree-lined one-way system around the town centre of Colwyn Bay could herald a completely new and upgraded look for the town.

Conwy county council wants residents to take part in the six-week consultation about the plans, which form part of the Bay Life Masterplan, starting this week.

The proposals aim to create an attractive town centre with a more people-friendly environment, according to the council.

The council’s deputy leader, Cllr Goronwy Edwards, cabinet member for economic development, said: “This is an opportunity to get involved and contribute your views to influence the next phase of the Bay Life Regeneration Programme, which is focused on reinvigorating Colwyn Bay town centre.

“We want to bring more people to the town centre and provide better economic opportunities for local businesses and people.

“I urge everyone to take part.”

The video takes the viewer on a journey down a tree-lined, one-way route on Abergele Road towards the town centre, with colourful cycle lanes, on-street parking and wide pavements.

Down Penrhyn Road to Prince’s Drive, a new car park and market hall is envisaged, before turning right the one-way system continues up Station Road.

The video also shows a Colwyn sign, like the one situated on the sea front, located in St Paul’s Square, which itself has had a makeover.

The plans are part of a bid to make Colwyn Bay a regional centre for business and leisure.
Four areas are earmarked – Parc Eirias, the waterfront, the town centre and the housing renewal area.
Plans were recently revealed for another tranche of housing renewal on Abergele Road, which will increase the standard of homes in the area, specifically those on the rental market.
