How Porthcawl’s ‘regeneration jigsaw’ will be pieced together over the next five years

The key developments that will trigger Porthcawl’s stunning transformation over the next five years have been unveiled by Bridgend County Borough Council.

Cabinet Members from the local authority have agreed the ‘regeneration jigsaw’ that will be pieced together over several phases to deliver a new food store, leisure attractions, housing and an improved Eastern Promenade.

Last Christmas, the council broke the deadlock which had held back the town’s regeneration by securing a £3.33m deal to take total control over the Salt Lake car park site.

While a previous regeneration masterplan centred on a large superstore being developed, the new plans will involve a smaller food store at the northern end of the Salt Lake site (towards the Awel Y Mor community centre).

The opportunity will be marketed from early 2019, and a store could open as soon as summer 2021. Find out more:
