Flickr is good----but you have to watch out for the moderators. There are one or two dodgy individuals with that title(one is something about a Snake)

I think you'll find that Mr Snake Corp has gone for good, Mike.  ;)

Has Mr Snake Corps gone for good?.... or has he simply metamorphosised (in true Dr Who style) in to another being?

What's the structure with all the flags on it's roof?

Is that supposed to be a car park on the right? (top pic)

Only just noticed option 3 won, an ugly 60's concrete monstrosity, it must be the cheap option, better than nothing I suppose, just a wasted opportunity. :(

I agree, it is pretty awful. I would have liked to see a lot more greenery/landscaping instead of the relentless acres of concrete paving.

The architect comments....

THE man behind the design of Colwyn Bay’s future waterfront, insists the project will not be “elitist” and will appeal to all.

Kevin Horton, architectural director at Liverpool architects K2, said: “We did not want it to be an elitist yacht club. We want people to feel ownership.”

His company beat five rival architects in a Watersports Hotspot Design Competition run by Conwy County Borough Council which is part of the Bay Life+ project.

Mr Hortonsaid: We are aiming at entry level to midrange watersports. It’s for general yachtsmen, jetskiers, canoeists and dinghy sailors to launch from.

“It’s also going to be an educational facility over harbour licences and so on.

“We would train people in multi-purpose, audio visual workshops. People could also go on a dry land simulator.”

Mr Horton said the watersports hotspots centre would also include huge storage space for privately- owned boats, jetskis and canoes. There could be washdown areas for users’ crafts.

Even dog walkers could walk on the transparent building’s grassed roof.

This should appeal to Cllr Oddy. I know he's an avid fan of transparency.

By that you mean you don't see him around anymore?
