Porthcawl caravan site welcomes first visitors for more than a decade

A CARAVAN site in Porthcawl this week welcomes its first visitors for more than a decade.

There have been calls for the well-known Sandy Bay Touring Site to reopen since Bridgend Council closed it in 2000.

It was intended to form part of the Porthcawl regeneration scheme but was never redeveloped.

Now Geoff and Fran Dower, of the neighbouring Hi-Tide Inn, have invested £30,000 towards the new camper van site, which they said would also help ease congestion along the seafront.

“This is great news for Porthcawl, enabling a designated site for mobile homes to vacate the promenade,” said Mr Dower.

After negotiations with the council, the site will be open for an initial six-month trial.

Town councillor Mark Davies said: “This should seen an end to the issues the town has had with camper vans abusing Porthcawl’s residential streets.”
