This article is old - Published: Saturday, Feb 10th, 2024

Neath Port Talbot Council is looking for people’s views on the future of Aberavon seafront, with regards what they want to see developed there in the future.
The council is looking for local opinions from residents to help it create a new masterplan for the popular seafront area, as well as what upgrades and developments could go there over the next few years.
The seafront master-plan for Aberavon is being funded as part of the UK Government’s shared prosperity fund which is worth around £2.5 million, and designed to “strengthen the social fabric of our communities and encourage a sense of local pride and belonging.”
Regeneration works on the Aberavon seafront has been on-going since 2001, with more than £22 million spent on enhancing the area and improving facilities for both residents and tourists.
Investments already made include the Aberavon aqua splash, a number of children’s play areas and an adventure golf course. Further developments could be expected in the coming years, following the completion of a feasibility study to direct any future investment which is expected to be ready by March of 2025.
Public drop-in sessions will now be taking place in the Aberavon Leisure
and Fitness Centre on Friday, February 16 and Saturday, 17, from 10am to 6pm. There will also be an online survey for those who cannot attend in person. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
