Vale of Glamorgan Council asks public to suggest what Barry Island beach huts could be used for

Vale of Glamorgan Council says it's open to suggestions on what to do with the new beach huts at Barry Island.

The buildings, which are still under construction, form part of the regeneration of the eastern side of the promenade. But the final decision on how to use them has not yet been made.

Nicola Hendy reports.

We know what we want them to achieve. We want them to bring vitality and life to this end of the prom.

We want them if possible to try out a bit of craft or art or whatever, or trading in this area; as well as being somewhere really nice for people to come and visit, so we want them to be as accessible as possible to local people and to visitors to the Island
