Controversial plans for Llandudnoís Pier Pavilion look set to be given the green light.

The Welsh Government have decided not to call in the controversial plans to develop the site, clearing the way for developer Alan Waldron to realise their plans.

A letter by Welsh Government's head of planning decisions, Mrs T Davies, on behalf of the cabinet secretary for energy, planning and rural affairs revealed the Welsh Governmentís decision not to intervene claiming most of the issues raised had either been addressed or were matters that were "local in nature" and could be resolved within the county.

Mrs Davies, in the letter, said: "The issues arising from the development have been assessed against natonal and local planning policies in an appropriate manner. They are not considered to have and wide effects and, while the application has raised a number of local objections, this can not be considered to be substantial controversy beyond the immediate locality.

"The proposal does not adversely impact on sites of scientific, nature conservation or historic interest, or area of landscape importance and it does not raise issues of national security or novel planning issues.

"I do not consider the issue as more than local importance and the application should not be called in for determination by the Welsh Ministers. It is now for your authority to determine the application."

Conwy County Borough Council planning committee granted conditional planning permission in March, subject to the Welsh Government removing the direction. So now it has been removed the plans must now pass a number of minor planning hurdles before being given the final go ahead.

The £18 million proposed plans would see the construction of 48 high-quality apartments, two restaurants and an underground car park and is expected to create more than 100 jobs.  ref Pioneer

This sounds more like taking advantage of the system, to reduce rents ?

Poundworld stores in North Wales at risk under plans to close 100 UK shops
The discount retailer has seven stores in the region.
Discount chain Poundworld could be set to axe 100 stores in a major restructuring plan.

Poundworld is considering a so-called Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), an insolvency procedure which would allow it to slash its rents and close stores.

I wondered how Rhos, could handle the expense of the Pirate weekend, when Conwy could not, it would appear that the Colwyn Bay and Rhos on sea BID (Business improvement district)  You are not allowed to view links.

Thanks for posting that DVT,  I've got a plant that resembles the one with red berries in the garden so I'll have a closer look at it tomorrow

Common woodland and hedgerow plant which must hold the record for greatest number of different common names - "cuckoo pint" and "lords and ladies" being the most common names.  Poisonous so dig it up (wear gloves) if you have kids who could be attracted to the red berries later.  More info here ...

We got on the 1946 Crosville bus on Sunday, from Rhos to CB, it was a joy to travel in the old thing.
Sadly though, only a very few diehards were there to enjoy the Armed Forces day in the drizzle.
The jazz musicians were playing to nobody.
The stall holders were packing up at 2pm.
Perhaps it was very much busier on Saturday when the weather was much better?
