SURFACING work on Rhos-on-Sea promenade is nearing completion, with just a few days to go until contractors finish this phase of work.

Work began on November 9, having been delayed by two days due to the contractor being held up on another job.

Expected to last for two weeks, the work resulted in West Promenade/Cayley Promenade junction (the Colwyn Bay end) closing on November 15 and Rhos Promenade closing from Harlequin Theatre to Combermere Gardens on November 16 and 17.

Re: Everything to do with Rhos On Sea....Harlequin Puppet Theatre set to reopen!
« Reply #856 on: November 28, 2023, 10:46:57 am »
A MUCH-LOVED puppet theatre in Rhos-on-Sea is set to reopen, almost a year after its closure due to the death of the owner.

The Harlequin Puppet Theatre closed last year following the death of owner and director Chris Somerville, a puppeteer who had been ?integral? to the theatre?s success and popularity.

The theatre was opened by Eric Bramall in 1958 and was the first permanent puppet theatre in Great Britain ? the building was also given Grade II status earlier this year.

The theatre gave no official date for its return, and said more information would be provided in due course.

A spokesperson for the theatre said: ?It?s been nearly a year now since the Harlequin Puppet Theatre had to close its doors due to the sad passing of its owner and director Chris Somerville and we wanted to give everyone an update on the future.

?As with any situation such as this there has been a considerable amount of work involved in administering the estate and the complexities that come with that and a business, and this still continues.

?One of the key initial aims was to secure the theatres future in terms of the physical building and its position and we were delighted to report in July that the theatre is now Grade 2 listed.

?There is still a considerable amount of work to be done in terms of restoration to ensure that the theatre is maintained, safe and nurtured for its future.

?Shows and performances will return to the theatre and the puppets will perform again, maybe not as frequently as Chris performed but certainly throughout the year together with open days for people to visit. We will of course keep everyone updated on these plans as we know more detail.

?We thank you for your continued support and good wishes and look forward to seeing visitors to the theatre again in the future.?

RHOS-ON-SEA promenade is expected to be opened to the public by the end of January, with some travel routes to be opened tomorrow (December 22).

The footpath and parking areas between Rhos-on-Sea and the slipway were opened to the public on Thursday, 14 December.

From Friday 22 December, the contractor will open large areas of the active travel route and seating areas.

Rhos-on-Sea could soon have two new seaside kiosks. Conwy County Council has applied to its own planning department, seeking permission to construct the new concessions kiosks on the Cayley Promenade.

The plans are part of the ongoing Colwyn Bay flood defence works and public realm improvements funded by the Welsh Government ?The two new kiosks will be situated either end of the Rhos-on-Sea section of the promenade, each being opposite either end of where the grass embankment starts and finishes.

Both will include disabled toilets and a storeroom, replacing two older kiosks which were removed at an earlier stage of the redevelopment. Whilst the old kiosks employed one full-time and one part-time employee, the new kiosks will create two full-time jobs and four part-time positions.

The multi-million Rhos-on-Sea makeover that could see resort compete with the best
Bolstered sea defences, gym equipment, seats with charging points and e-bike stations modernise popular seaside town

A North Wales seaside town's multi-million pound makeover is set to be fully unveiled in coming weeks. Sea defences have already been put in place at Rhos-on-Sea - including a new fish-tail-shaped groyne and one million tonnes of sand, which largely remained in place despite the best efforts of Storms Isha and Jocelyn.

But parallel to this bolstered, golden shore, a plethora of intriguing visual, oral and physical features are also about to be unwrapped and made available to the good people who relish their visits to the waterfront in this classy, little town between Colwyn Bay and Llandudno.

A TRADER to run a concession near to Rhos-on-Sea paddling pool is being sought.

Conwy County Borough Council is seeking applications and offers for a seasonal trading concession to be located on the green adjacent to the paddling pool.

The trading season will commence on March 23 and will end on November 6.

The local authority told the Pioneer: "The authority is seeking applications and offers for a seasonal trading concession to be located on the green adjacent to the Rhos On Sea Paddling Pool. Bids must be submitted by February 14."

Bid for new Rhos-on-Sea kiosks could be agreed next week
The demolition of the original buildings on the West Prom sparked protests

Two new seaside kiosks for Rhos-on-Sea could be given the green light at a planning committee at Bodlondeb next week. Conwy has applied to its own planning department, seeking permission for the identical kiosks on the West Promenade.

Council officers have advised the committee they are "minded to grant" conditional approval for the proposals as part of phase 2B of the Colwyn Bay flood defence and public realm improvements. Welsh Water, however, have indicated they need access to the sewers and have requested a detailed plan of the kiosks.

Kiosks plan put on hold amid fears they won't withstand bad weather
It comes after the council was criticised for waiting two years before submitting plans for the structures
Oh dear, what's going on with CCBC?

I bet it's cost a few bob (our Council Tax money) to reach that decision.

I;m sure it has DVT,  apart from being two years late it now seems that their plans of the kiosk were not fit for purpose.   It's a bit like the white elephant depot at Mochdre       Anyway it gives us a chance to use the new road system by the Cayley embankment before the road is dug up again            :o
I saw the new stretch of road yesterday and am reserving my opinion on it until it's in regular use

Promenade road between Rhos-on-Sea and Colwyn Bay reopens to traffic after 21 months
The road is now one-way only in the direction of Colwyn Bay

The scheme - which cost ?14m - involved the building of a new rock groyne and importing approximately 1 million tonnes of sand. This now sits in front of the existing seawall to improve coastal defences.
