Aberystwyth is Open for Business

Aberystwyth is now open for business after a recent £22,000 development on the promenade to make a designated parking area for motorcycles. Although this is considered a step forward, by many, to welcome visitors to the area, with the hope of tapping into the lucrative biker tourism market and hopefully boosting local trade, the Council still has some way to go in curbing the unwelcome feeling. A recent comment left on the WelshBikers forum calls the parking area a “sheep pen” saying it’s too small and that once full people will just move onto the next town. Other comments left by bikers call the development a waste of money and that it could have been better spent on other local amenities.
