Overview of Public Space Improvements
There are 3 elements to the public space proposals for the Kinmel Bay Coastal Defence Improvements Scheme:
1. Improving access. Where possible we’ve included seating at the beach access points, to allow visitors and residents to enjoy the panoramic sea views. All the improved beach access points will be integrated into the seawall, so they don’t affect the width of the coastal path.
- Creating 2 new access points (proposed near Horton’s Nose Nature Reserve and Baysville Coffee and Grill)
- Enhancing 3 access points to be fully accessible ramps (by Sunnyvale Caravan Park, Kinmel Dunes Local Nature Reserve and Sandy Cove community)
- Improving 2 access points to be ramped steps with integrated seating facing the sea (proposed near Kinmel Dunes Local Nature Reserve and Sandy Cove community)
- Improving 2 stepped access points down the enhanced revetment (near Golden Sands holiday park)
- Replacing the floodgate near Kinmel Beach car park (at the end of St Asaph Avenue)
2. Widening 1000+ metres of the coastal route. Widening the coastal path to 4.5m between Baysville Coffee and Grill and Towyn Revetment (by Golden Sands holiday park).
3. Enhancing three key public areas as mini park spaces (parklets). Typically including seating, informal play and ecological enhancements.
