Designs revealed for new watersports centre, cafe and harbour kiosk projects at Porthcawl

7 July 2017

Bridgend County Borough Council is offering Porthcawl residents a preview of several exciting new developments planned for the area.

With an integrated watersports centre and café proposed for Rest Bay and a refurbished harbour kiosk with new facilities planned at Porthcawl Marina, details and illustrations for the developments will be placed on public display at the Stage Door Suite of the Grand Pavilion on Wednesday 12 July between 1pm – 6.30pm.

Alternatively, they can be viewed online and commented upon using the planning pages at

If successful, the watersports centre and café at Rest Bay will provide new high-quality facilities near the award-winning Blue Flag beach while establishing an iconic, contemporary attraction capable of supporting and developing sports and leisure activities in the area.

Meanwhile, the proposal for refurbishing the harbour kiosk will give the historic building a fresh new look while introducing showers, toilets and other facilities for boats using Porthcawl Marina.

The planned developments follow recent news that several new businesses are about to open their doors at the Grade II-listed Jennings Building and work will start later this year on the community–led Porthcawl Maritime Centre project.
