The new features will mark the key roadside entrance points to the Glamorgan Heritage Coast area and have been commissioned as part of an on going initiative to raise the profile of the destination to visitors and residents alike, and will build on the success of the interpretation work at the beach and car park locations.

This commission is part of a collection of works funded by the Vale of Glamorgan Council and the Coastal Communities Fund and is being led by Creative Rural Communities, the regeneration and economic development initiative in the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

Creative Rural Communities is part funded by the Welsh Government Rural Communities Rural Development Programme 2014-2020
