CONWY County Borough Council is inviting applications for seasonal concessions at Colwyn Bay Pier.

The local authority is looking to attract local or independent businesses to offer food, drinks, retail, arts and crafts, activities or pop-up events, at the newly constructed pier in Colwyn Bay.

The advertisement inviting expressions of interest has been published on and the Conwy website.

Suitable operators have until January 31 2022 to submit their applications.

Cllr Brian Cossey, chair of the Council’s Pier Project Board, said: “We’re looking for seasonal concessions that will complement the character of this beautifully designed structure and the existing businesses along the waterfront.”

“I hope we’ll receive a good mix of submissions to enhance the visitor experience.”

All submissions will be presented to the Pier Project Board for consideration.

The newly completed replacement Pier opened in July 2021. The 40m truncated style Pier features ironwork and ornate support columns salvaged from the original Pier using the 1934 colour scheme.

The original ornate columns under the boardwalk have been treated and reinforced, and seventy-eight decorative panels have been successfully refurbished.

The lamp columns, their bases and capitals have been recast as per original design.

The pier has had a 121 year turbulent history. Read article A deeper dive with the architects behind Colwyn Bay's Victoria Pier here.
