New beach 'will be a great asset for Colwyn Bay'

It’ll be quite a scene when this sand starts to arrive on the beach. It’s a vital part of the coast protection work that is taking place along the promenade, but will provide a marvellous, permanent beach, which will be a great asset for Colwyn Bay, right next to the new Porth Eirias watersport centre.

– Cllr Mike Priestley, Conwy Council Cabinet Member for Highways, Environment and Sustainability
