A MULTI-MILLIONPOUND mar­itime cen­tre in Porth­cawl which in­cludes a coastal science and dis­cov­ery cen­tre, cafe, wine bar, roof ter­race and mi­cro brew­ery, has been given the green light.

Work on the £5.5m cen­tre which is to be built on the town’s Cosy Cor­ner by the Es­planade is set to start in spring 2019.

Wel­com­ing the deci- sion by Brid­gend coun­cil’s devel­op­ment con­trol com­mit­tee, Credu Char­ity’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Mark Bryant said: “We are very de­lighted to get plan­ning per­mis­sion.

“Work has al­ready started with the SeaQuest Coastal Science out­reach pro­gramme and tem­po­rary build­ings on site for the sea cadets.

“We now go through a de­tailed de­sign pe­riod with our main con­trac­tor An­drew Scott who will be ready to start on the site in early spring next year.

“There is an es­ti­mated 56-week build­ing pe­riod so the com­ple­tion date is set for early 2020 – it is very ex­cit­ing.”

He added: “There will be 120 new jobs cre­ated from cater­ing and hos­pi­tal­ity to sales and mar­ket­ing. “We will be work­ing with lo­cal sup­pli­ers and giv­ing small busi­nesses op­por­tu­ni­ties.” The new de­sign was scaled back from a £7m project that re­ceived per­mis­sion in 2016.
