A new boardwalk and viewing platform could soon be available for residents and visitors to enjoy on Swansea's waterfront.It's being proposed that a 70-metre boardwalk offering panoramic views of Swansea Bay is constructed in the sand dunes at Swansea Point.
The boardwalk would be made of recycled plastic and would stretch from the entrance to the dunes at Aurora car park to a viewing platform in the dunes.
As well as offering stunning views, the boardwalk would also help minimise erosion in other areas by channelling access across the dunes.
The work would be funded via planning consent for developments in the area.
Swansea Council is now asking its Cabinet for permission to submit a planning application.
Cllr June Burtonshaw, Cabinet Member for Place, said: "We need to do all we can in Swansea to make the most of our status as a leading waterfront city.
"The proposed boardwalk and viewing platform at Swansea Point will add to a recent upgrade of the promenade and the introduction of the 360 Beach and Watersports Centre opposite St Helen's.
"These facilities aren't just important for local people, they're also important for the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come to Swansea Bay every year and spend money in local shops and other businesses."
If funding allows, an interpretation panel will also be installed on the viewing platform that will contain information about the wildlife of the dunes and other key features of Swansea Bay.
