Outdoor Activities on Vale of Glamorgan Coast – survey & consultation events

Wales Adventure Tourism Organisation (WATO) is working in partnership with the Vale of Glamorgan council to review the current and potential interest in provision of outdoor activities at coastal venues along the Heritage Coast.

is experiencing a surge in visitor numbers, particular those in search of outdoor activities. The Vale of Glamorgan has excellent natural coastal assets that are under-utilised, so increasing opportunities for the development of outdoor activities along this excellent natural coastline could bring significant benefit to the coastal communities along the Vale of Glamorgan, including job creation, enhanced well-being and additional revenue for existing businesses.

After a period of consultation, WATO will be hosting a spring event with local activity providers to showcase outdoor activities that are feasible along the coast.

You have been identified as a key stakeholder and we would really value your input into this project.

We would therefore be grateful if you would complete the following survey, by 19 February 2019, to enable us to gather information on the level of activity currently taking place and also to gain insight into the views of stakeholders about coastal outdoor activities in the area:  


Alongside the survey we will be hosting two consultation events where we will be discussing:

  • potential opportunities;
  • how the Vale of Glamorgan can support outdoor activities;
  • a vision for the area; and
  • the spring showcase event.

Consultation event details:

  1. Heritage Coast Centre, Dunraven Bay – 12th February 3pm – 5pm
  2. Atlantic College – 21st February 6pm – 8pm

 Both events will be the same so attendance is only required at one. Please email projects@swoapg.com to confirm which event you are able to attend.

Thank you,

South Wales Outdoor Activity Providers Group
Representing Providers of Outdoor Adventurous Activities in South Wales and the Brecon Beacons
