Works to transform the Eastern Promenade on Barry Island are progressing well with the newly constructed beach huts forming a talking point for the public.
As part of the regeneration works we are constructing two sets of brightly coloured beach huts, one set of larger huts located near the eastern shelter and one set further along the promenade near the new water feature.
The huts which are currently under construction prompted a visit from the ITV news last week to report on the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s plans for their use. The Council are seeking suggestions from the public on what to do with the new beach huts which are due to open this summer. The Council’s aim for the huts to bring vitality and life to the prom includes occasional use to house stalls for local traders and provide space for craft fairs or other similar events.
Further works at the promenade have included new toilet facilities, an artist designed traversing wall, renovation of the eastern shelter and new viewing platforms and footpaths. Also a new water mist feature in the shape of ammonite fossils will be built on the promenade to sit below a covered events area.
Works are progressing well with completion in time for the busy summer months.
