I believe the new section of Prom between the Pier and Porth Eirias is opening today.  ZXZ

Colwyn Bay promenade re-opens on Thursday after the latest phase of improvements costing £6.7m.
The work, which began in March, includes flood protection upgrades and resurfacing between Porth Eirias and the pier.
Extra sand has also been brought in to extend the beach which was hit by last winter's coastal storms.
About £25m has been spent since the improvements began in 2011, said a spokesperson for Conwy council.

    The large stretch of sand in Colwyn Bay is already being well used by humans exercising their dogs. Virtually everyone on the beach has a dog with them and both humans and dogs are having a great time
    So, before any one leaps in and says ban the lot, consider this.  For every dog on the beach, thats one less that might be in Bryn Euryn quarry area. And thats a bonus, I am sure you all know why.
   I am a dog lover, always have been. But I hate the mess they leave behind. So how about this for a revolutionary idea.
   Actively encourage dog owners to get down on the beach in the Bay. I don't mean the nice soft dry sand near the road where youngsters will build their sand castles. I mean down by the waters edge, preferably when the tide is coming in. Maybe a narrow controlled area for the dogs and their owners to get down from the prom to the water level. There obviously will be a good old mess there, so make sure everyone knows not to go there unless they have a dog.
   Because,  its all very well saying owners should clear up after their dogs, there are a certain percentage who will never bother, and in time the good cleaning up owners will think "they never bother, so why should I." I know this happens. One lady on my golf course, which suffers daily from dog mess, stated to me quite seriously, in a pleasant manner but just stating a fact "You will never stop people letting their dogs make a mess up here." And I agree, she is correct. Wardens? You have to be joking, a stiff fine will only mean the dog owners might go elsewhere for a day or two.
   I know this is a rather strange idea and that it would get a lot of undesirable publicity in the press/T.V.  But from a personal point of view I would far rather see a selfish owner letting a dog make a mess on the edge of an incoming tide that in the middle of the grass on the Cayley embankment.

Maybe with a nice beach some people will venture to a dip in the briny.  They could get a mouthful, or haven't you noticed that doggy doos floats!

  No, I had''nt. Not surprising. I don't make a habit of watching dogs carrying on the act whilst standing in the sea.

Whilst taking a look at the new Prom yesterday afternoon, I saw this Shelter on the Rhos side of the Pier, just where the new beach is.  It's in a disgusting condition and has been filthy for years. It just amazes me that council officials and local councillors can walk past it without thinking to themselves, "I must get that sorted out". Do they not notice or do they just not care?

I have a recollection of that shelter being built in the 80s, at a cost of approx. £30.000 I remember saying at the time ...... >>>

I'm sure you don't.  But one should remember doggy doo is very harmful to children who will naturally look forward to a paddle or swim.

The smell from within those shelters is gross, especially in hot weather.
