Alun's Barry Waterfront Survey

Vale MP Alun Cairns has set the ambition to bring a marina to Barry to continue the regeneration of our town.

Regeneration champion, Alun Cairns, has held talks with colleagues in Westminster, the Local Authority and other local groups to progress plans for a marina. Alun wants local residents to play a part by giving their views on how this latest regeneration development can benefit our community.

Alun believes Barry Waterfront is perfect for a marina that would bring new investment, jobs, restaurants, bars and office space to the area.

Commenting on the plans, Alun said:

"My plan for a marina is part of our Levelling-Up ambitions to help boost our local economy by attracting further investment and jobs.”

“Barry has huge potential and as a coastal town we can take advantage of Barry's strong links with maritime history."

To help us deliver regeneration that works for everyone, respond to our survey with your views.
