The unofficial access path from the Marina to Dock Beach is unsuitable for the elderly, infirm and disabled. Now the Penarth Marina Residents Association is bringing pressure to bear to create a formal Right of Way.

Members of the Penarth Marina and Haven Residents Association have been told that there is now a possibility that the informal access-path from the Marina to Dock Beach  could be accepted as public right-of-way.

The new chair of the association Gwynne Griffiths, along with the past chairman Martin Whitehill and Cllr Gwyn Roberts (Labour St Augustines) have held a meeting with the Vale Council’s Public Rights-of-Way Officer, Gwyn Teague to press the issue of formalising the pathway.

Dock Beach is not that easy to get to, but is a tranquil spot on a sunny afternoon

The Vale Council has said it will require evidence statements from local people confirming that they have used the route during the past 20 years. The Residents’ Association will compile the documentation to make the  case to the council .

There is a long tradition of the route being used by local people – pre-dating the building of the Barrage but the ssociation needs is hard documentary evidence in the form of statements about the use of this pathway to advance the case for creating a Right of Way The association’s newly elected chair Gwynne Griffiths is to distribute “statement forms”.

    One person confirming the Use of this Path must be the Legendary Snoggerdog. For years longer than most of us can remember He has Plodded this Path on route to Penarth Seafront In fact It`s rumoured He knows almost all the Pebbles/Stones by Name. Hard Documentary Evidence Yes Let`s Hope He Has Sight of a Statement Form.
