Can you help shape the future Bay of Colwyn?


Place Plans were recently introduced by the Welsh Government, as a way of encouraging greater community engagement in local town planning decision making. The Colwyn Place Plan presents an opportunity for local people, working together to influence future local town planning decisions.

We have defined the Bay of Colwyn area as Rhos-on-Sea, Colwyn Bay, Old Colwyn and Bryn-y-Maen.

We are in the early stages and there will be more chances for you to contribute to the Colwyn Place Plan over the coming months.  This survey is open until the 14th July 2022 and we are looking for your views on what could be included in the plan.

This survey should take 5 minutes to complete.
