Work is expected the be completed on the latest Colwyn Bay waterfront project by late spring.

A new concession building is currently being developed on the Colwyn Bay Promenade, North of the Pier, which will house a food and/or drink vendor for residents and visitors.

The building - the concept design of which was created by Glyndwr University architectural design student Nichola Hilton - will be single storey and will include the word Colwyn spelt out in 2m high red concrete.

It will also provide cycle stands to make it a convenient stopping point for people using the National Route 5 path.

With the steel frame now completed and the majority of the brickwork in place work will soon begin on the roof.

Councillor Abdul Khan, who represents Glyn Ward on Conwy County Borough Council, said it was great to see another new structure in the area and just showed the town continued to head in the right direction.

Cllr Khan said: "It will give the promenade a new look. Over the last few years we have been upgrading the promenade from Colwyn Bay to Rhos-on-Sea and this latest project will make sure there is something in between, giving visitors more options.

"The new pier and the concession building are hopefully going to compliment each other, which is good news."

While these positives marked the continuing development of Colwyn Bay, he said there were still concerns people were spending money elsewhere.

Mr Khan said: "I get frustrated when local people put the town down. Between Colwyn Bay, Rhos-on-Sea, Old Colwyn, Colwyn Heights there is about a 30,00 population, and we need to start seeing those people spending more money in Colwyn Bay.

"For other people to come into our area and compliment our town, we need to compliment ourselves first."
