Colwyn Bay Property Developers Who Destroyed Historic Hotel Win Housing Estate Battle!

The community in this area have very long memories and Anwyl are hated for destroying the hotel linked to Alice in Wonderland Lewis Caroll.

A huge public outcry led to the Welsh government overturning the demolition of the original house and Anwyl proceeded to tear down the extensions with a digger, not carefully, (it is all on film, ) and then claimed the building was beyond repair!!!! The land has lain derelict for over 10 years, yet they now want to build on greenbelt rather than just build here! Odd, but locals have a very good name for Anwyl, it starts with S ends in M, and has four letters! 

 And  PLANNING permission has been granted for 39 new homes at Glyn Farm in Colwyn Bay.

Anwyl Homes will develop the almost seven-acre site off Valley Road, which was allocated for housing in the Conwy County Council Local Plan.

The development will include four affordable homes and a number of green spaces, including a public play area and retained grazing land.

Work is expected to start next week.

Phil Dolan, managing director for Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, said: “We’re pleased to have secured planning permission for new development in Colwyn Bay, where we have previously built a reputation for providing high-quality new homes.

“Our latest development will provide a range of detached and semi-detached properties, providing a good mix of designs for growing families and first-time buyers. We look forward to welcoming new homeowners, with properties available to reserve from autumn 2021.”

The range of properties to be built comprises two–bedroom, two bathroom semi-detached homes as well as three and four-bedroom detached homes, including some split-level properties. A number of mature trees will also be retained on-site and some homes will benefit from panoramic views of the Irish Sea.

As part of its planning committee, Anwyl will make a community contribution of more than £110,000 including £21,322 towards open space, £9,000 towards libraries, and more than £76,000 to off-site traffic calming measures.

The new homes are to be built on the edge of open fields and woodland areas; close to amenities including the town center, beach, and promenade, leisure facilities at Eirias Park and not far from schools.

The new development will be marketed under the name Glyn Farm with first homes due to be completed by spring 2022. From ....

Colwyn Bay Travellers Set Up Camp At Eirias Park Next To Police Headquarters!

Personally, I think this area would make a good permanent Travellers Camp, as there will be a huge Children's special residential unit being built nearby so why not! My only concern is for the current listed building awaiting conversion, we do not want another Gwrych Castle incident do we! 

An "unauthorized" camp has been set up on a football pitch beside North Wales Police's headquarters.

Around five caravans and vehicles were brought to the field located just off the A547 in Colwyn Bay on Tuesday afternoon and remained there on Wednesday.

The pitch, which locals said was regularly used by youngsters to play football, is located just meters away from the North Wales Police force HQ.

An officer was seen walking towards the camp on Wednesday morning to speak with the occupants of the caravans.

Conwy Council spokesman said: "We are aware of an unauthorized encampment at Glan y Don.

"We are taking steps to resolve the situation bearing in mind the relevant legislation, statutory and non-statutory guidance."

North Wales Police declined to comment.

Llandudno .. Babies And Young Children's Lives Put At Risk in Suspected Arson Attack!

If it is proven to be arson, which is what is rumored to be in the town, but we will know for sure after forensics have studied the scene,

If it is so then these Arsonists could have caused the deaths of many if the gas had exploded! Well done to the fire service for such swift action

If anyone knows anything please get in touch with the police on 101. Thanks

Businesses have been left counting the cost of damage caused by a huge overnight fire that forced people to flee their homes.

Emergency services were scrambled to a courtyard behind shops on the junction of Lloyd Street and Mostyn Street in Llandudno in the early hours of Tuesday as a fire took hold.

The blaze caused significant damage to a gas pipe, electricity supply, and air conditioning units as it took hold in the shared courtyard behind the Ham Bone deli, HSBC, and Kitchen 50 Six.

HSBC has now said that their branch had suffered "significant damage" in the fire, and would remain closed for the foreseeable future.

As the fire took hold, people living in properties above the fire were evacuated from their homes as firefighters worked to bring the blaze under control.

The fire had damaged a gas pipe, which caused a leak and then caught fire.

Martin Ainsworth, who runs the Ham Bone deli, said he believed the actions of the fire crews had prevented a potential explosion at the site.

He said: "In the early hours of the morning I was called out at say 3.20am to the words 'there's some sort of fire behind the building of HSBC, Kitchen 50 Six and the Ham Bone.

"The fire service and police were on the scene and they managed to contain the fire.

"Nobody knows how this was caused at the moment."

He said: "I must say the fire brigade has been fantastic. They contained it very well.

"Without them getting stuck in, there could have been a massive explosion. It could have been a lot worse.

"It could have been a disaster."

Mr. Ainsworth said the incident had come at a tough time, with the store only reopening after the lockdown weeks earlier.

He said: "After lockdown, it's been tough and we have only been open two weeks and all this has hit us now which has held us back again.

"It hasn't helped us financially.

"It's downhill not just mentally but financially as well. We have already had a hard 12 months and now we have been hit again with a bit of bad luck."

Fortunately, the damage did not extend into the interior of his premises, but it has led to the temporary closure of the deli while repairs are carried out.

The gas and electricity supplies have been made safe, he said, but further repair work was being carried out.

He said he was hopeful that he could reopen ahead of the May bank holiday.

Mr. Ainsworth added that Mostyn Estates had been "exceptional" in their support.

HSBC has also confirmed that their branch was badly damaged as a result of the fire, and would remain closed for now.

A spokesman said: "The cause of the fire is yet to be established, but there is significant damage and unfortunately the branch will be temporarily closed for the foreseeable future.

"We will be assessing the damage that has been caused, and at that stage, we will have an idea of the work that is required to be done to enable us to re-open the branch.

"In the meantime, customers can use the Post Office for day-to-day transactions, in addition to mobile, online, and telephone banking. If a customer does need to visit a branch, Colwyn Bay is around six miles away and open from 10am to 2pm."

Callum Darling, operations manager at the Kitchen 50 Six group, said: "I got a call at 3.30am saying that the fire brigade needs access to the café because there's a fire out the back.

"I arrived and there were four or five police cars, two fire engines, and the ladder arriving.

"All the tenants from the flat, the top floor flat, were in the back of a police van being looked after because they had babies and young children, and another three tenants were just outside the café.

"We weren't allowed to go near [the fire] and then after about half an hour, 45 minutes, the fire brigade got it under control.

"They then had to extend the cordon due to a gas leak, so they were trying to get that under control as well.

"About half an hour later, Wales and West Utilities and Scottish Power arrived to try and get that under control, and they were on scene for about an hour, an hour and a half.

"It got to about 6.30am when they finally got that under control and we could go and see what had happened and I was told this morning that they were going to be investigating it and they were going to get back to me."

Mr. Darling added: "All the phone line into the building was all burnt and destroyed, so we've now got no internet, no phone line, so that means we've got no card machine, which a lot of people use at the moment which is very difficult.

"Our tills rely on heavy internet usage to operate and work for updates so that's going to be a struggle now because that won't be at its full potential, that will be operating at 50%.

"Some of the staff rent the flats above us so they have been up all night, so we've had to have a shorter staff than normal because we couldn't find cover last minute."

Emergency services said they were called out to reports of the fire at around 3am, before fire crews, police officers, and utility engineers were dispatched.

A fire service spokesman said: "We were called at 3.04am to Mostyn Street, Llandudno.

"Two crews from Llandudno, the Aerial Ladder Platform from Rhyl, and a crew from Colwyn Bay attended a fire at the rear of a commercial building, which then spread to nearby properties."

Mark Morris, Wales and West Utilities Gas Emergency Service Manager for Llandudno said: “We were alerted to reports of a fire at a property in the Mostyn Street area of Llandudno in the early hours of this morning and immediately sent a team of engineers to the scene.

"On arrival we discovered that a fire in the alleyway behind the property had damaged a gas service pipe, causing a leak which then caught alight.

"As a precaution, the emergency services evacuated nearby properties while they extinguished the fire.

"Our engineers worked as safely and as quickly as they could and isolated the pipe, making the area safe.

“Our engineers are now supporting the emergency services as they investigate the cause of the fire though it is not thought to be related to the gas network.

"All residents have been allowed to return to their homes.

"There has been no impact on the safe and reliable supply of gas to local homes and businesses."

North Wales Police spokesman added: "At 3.11am this morning, officers attended a property on Mostyn Street, Llandudno due to a fire.

"Colleagues from North Wales Fire and Rescue Service also attended, and residential properties in the area were evacuated as a precaution."

Conwy County Has The Highest Number Of Sex Offenders Living in North Wales!

Not much of a shock here, most of them are living in Llandudno and Colwyn Bay! And I bet these statistics do not even include those who have abused their own children! And does it also include children such as the ones in special placements or a learning disability such as those who have been resettled in the community, and rape, etc, very low statistics really if we are to believe this!

Almost 1,000 registered sex offenders are currently living in North Wales, according to police figures.

A total of 992 sex offenders are recorded as living in the region as of April 15, statistics released by North Wales Police following a Freedom of Information request have revealed.

The total number is an increase from previous figures in 2019 which showed there were 931 sex offenders living in North Wales, and from figures in 2018 which recorded 866 sex offenders in the region.

The area with the highest number of sex offenders registered as living in the area is Conwy county, which has a total of 202.

Next is Wrexham with 198, followed by Denbighshire with 178 and then Flintshire with 176.

A total of 149 registered sex offenders live in Gwynedd, with 89 in Anglesey.

North Wales Police

North Wales Police also confirmed that a total of 263 registered sex offenders have been recorded as reoffending, with figures including sexual and non-sexual offenses and only those that have been convicted or cautioned for an offense.

Of those 263 offenders, 74 registered sex offenders have been convicted of a further sexual offense.

This figure, however, does not take into account when they committed the offense, so they might have committed the sexual offense prior to being subject of the register but convicted at a later date.

The figures also revealed that the whereabouts of two of North Wales' registered sex offenders were currently unknown, both of whom had been convicted of sexual assault.

One was recorded as missing in November 2018, while the other was recorded missing this month.

In response to the figures, chief superintendent Gareth Evans, of North Wales Police, said: “Protecting our communities is a priority for North Wales Police.

"We understand the concerns caused by offenders in the community and have recently invested in an additional dedicated Detective Inspector and two Detective Sergeants to manage the specialist team which oversees Registered Sex Offenders across North Wales.

"This team is geographically located across our entire area."

He added: “Re-offending rates amongst this group are often as a result of the excellent work this team carries out in monitoring offenders, their activities, and their compliance with the conditions imposed upon them.

“I would remind people that the numbers of these offenders who pose a predatory risk to strangers is extremely low and we focus our efforts on the highest risk individuals to protect the public.

"Anyone who has any concerns should report them to us on 101 or via the live webchat."

Colwyn Bay Foolish Drivers Get Van Stuck on Beach!

 Photo by Dan Leighton.

It happens all the time, you would think by now these foolish people would know that soft sand will not support a heavy vehicle! However, the owners appear to know so much better and crowds just watch and laugh as the tides come in and the cars meet the waves! If anything it does provide some entertainment! But the councils should stop all vehicles going on to the beaches.
