Project Description

We were asked by Alun Griffiths Contractors to supply an Artist’s Impression of Porthcawl’s new Town Beach for an information evening for all local businesses and residents.

The long-planned replacement of, what is known locally as, the Tarmac Beach is set to go ahead after the Welsh Government announced more than £2m of funding for Porthcawl.

The cash will help pay for the £3m revamp of the Town Beach, which is also known as the Tarmac or concrete beach.

The existing sea defences were constructed in 1984 and a recent inspection found the structure to be in a deteriorating condition and coming to the end of its viable life.

The current defences protect several million pounds worth of homes and commercial properties along the Esplanade, including the Grand Pavilion.

The Government said that when complete the strengthened defences will reduce the risk of flooding and erosion from the sea to 260 properties.
