This is presented to the shortlisted project which best demonstrates the principles of sustainability.
The winner of this award represented a substantial investment in the infrastructure along Colwyn Bay’s seafront.
The over-arching objective of this scheme is to provide environmental improvements to the promenade to offer a modern, sustainable and attractive public realm.
This has been combined with a significant upgrading of the predominantly Victorian sea defences to protect the promenade and the town behind from the threat of the sea for years to come.
The new promenade features hard and soft landscaping, upgraded street lighting, charging points for electric cars, a refreshment kiosk, a modern art installation and local historical information.
