I think we definitely need a topic relating to incompetence by councils.  The latest snippet concerns asbestos being used as infill in Rhos playground:

This should be easy to check: "Contractors had been working for the council to upgrade the Rhos-on-Sea play area close to Colwyn Bay cricket club at the time the asbestos was found." So clearly it will be a matter of minutes to identify the guilty party or parties as there will be detailed records relating to this work and it will also have been inspected by a council official.

And no; it's not April 1st...

Proposed plans for five apartments on the site of a former nursing home likely to be given the go ahead

The former St Michael's Nursing Home must have had the planning application granted as I drove past today and they had already started work on parts of the building

Would that be where there have been two huge holes in the sides of the bay shaped piece at the front? or am I thinking of another building?

That's the one Nemesis.   It's an Art Deco styled building and it will be converted into 5 apartments with a penthouse one on the top floor.  So perhaps the building is going up one storey more than it is at present.
I only had a very quick glimpse as I drove past the other day

Those 'holes' seem to have been there for ages. Trouble is you have to watch where you are going if you are driving !

Hello

Well, i was in Rhos earlier this week and it looks like work on Aberhod is progressing towards the end - at last. Flats I gather. It's been a long saga.

It looks as though the Odstones development has had the go ahead  &shake& it was decided at The Planning Committee meeting 20th April. Sorry if this has been mentioned before as it has only just come to my attention and I can't remember reading anything in the press either.

I hear the legendary Nino is finally calling it a day at the end of the season.
Very sad news, he and his family have been part of Rhos since I was a child. I understand another local ice cream family will be taking over the premises.
Thanks for all the happy memories, Nino.  $good$

Indeed many happy memories, that will be 80 years in Rhos, not bad going.

FWIW, we've just spoken to Nino who has flatly denied he's retiring and called it a "nasty rumour"  :-X :-X :-X
After all what is time, a mere tyranny.
