New pedestrian wayfinding signage will be installed in Penarth to provide visitors and residents with the information they need to find the best routes around the town.

The signage project has been delivered by the Future Projects Partnership group, a voluntary group that meets monthly to discuss and implement aspects of the Town Place Plan.

Leader of Penarth Town Council, Cllr. Mike Cuddy said that he was very pleased that the Town Council had been able to fund this new signage and felt that it would be a great asset for the town, ensuring that visitors arriving by car, train and on foot would be made aware of what Penarth has to offer.

The installation of the new Wayfinding Signage for Penarth is just one example of how the Future Projects Partnership Group is helping the Town Council to deliver projects that will benefit the whole community. The Group is shortly to oversee the installation of a new bench in the town centre, to replace the dilapidated seating outside Barclays Bank. This will be the first of a series of benches destined for the town centre, all featuring designs created by local school children.

The Group is also working on plans for a new Community Noticeboard for Windsor Road, so that residents and visitors will find it easier to find out about upcoming events in the town.

The Group, formerly known as the Interim Momentum Group has been in existence since 2015.  It consists of a group of people within the community who have shown a keen interest in working with the Town Council on such projects and is proving that effective co-working is the key to future progress and success for the town.

Town Clerk, Emma Boylan, wished to express her thanks to the members of the ‘Future Projects Partnership’ Group and especially to local resident, Gary Soltys, of Soltys Brewster Consulting, who had volunteered his professional expertise to push forward the project from the initial selection of the locations through to the delivery and installation of the finished signposts.
