A SOCIAL enterprise is set to build hundreds of carbon zero homes with energy bills of up to £150 per year across North Wales after clinching an exclusive five-year deal.

Creating Enterprise has signed a contract with leading manufacturer Beattie Passive   You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  to use its pioneering Passivhaus system for one-bedroom pods and two-storey family homes in Denbighshire, Conwy and Anglesey.

The timber-framed properties will feature solar panels, superinsulation, heat-retaining windows and temperature-monitoring ventilation, which can save residents up to 80 per cent on annual energy costs.

The deal will create 50 new jobs for the Colwyn Bay enterprise, which will set up a pop-up factory and use local sub-contractors and suppliers wherever possible to boost the regional economy until the contract.

   ))*        It would seem that the Quarry failed to check that all its Dynamite had been detonated before they shipped it to the sea defenses at Colwyn Bay. The Dynamite was safely detonated.                           ref FB

I was driving down King's Drive into Lansedowne Road a short while ago and traffic was diverted into Grosvenor Road (where the traffic lights are ) as there had been a crash a little further on.
What I could see was a car had apparently driven into a large red van and Police cars were blocking the road on both sides of the accident.
It looked like a bad crash but there was no Ambulance or Fire Engine on the scene so I hope that no one was seriously injured in the accident

Improved streets, sociable spaces and increased footfall - have your say on plans for Colwyn Bay town centre

A VIDEO showing what the future could hold for a seaside town centre has been released along with a major consultation on its future.

The video shows how a tree-lined one-way system around the town centre of Colwyn Bay could herald a completely new and upgraded look for the town.

Conwy county council wants residents to take part in the six-week consultation about the plans, which form part of the Bay Life Masterplan.
The proposals aim to create an attractive town centre with a more people-friendly environment, according to the council.

The council’s deputy leader, Cllr Goronwy Edwards, cabinet member for economic development, said: “This is an opportunity to get involved and contribute your views to influence the next phase of the Bay Life Regeneration Programme, which is focused on reinvigorating Colwyn Bay town centre.   For more information and to submit your views visit: conwy.gov.uk/baylife

“We want to bring more people to the town centre and provide better economic opportunities for local businesses and people.

“I urge everyone to take part.”

This latest lockdown will be devastating for the Mountain Zoo . However, if they were to announce a discounted annual membership scheme for Conwy residents that was available say for the rest of the year I think they might raise a considerable sum. Once subscribed to you continue to get the benefit until such a time as you cancel membership. Must be hundreds, perhaps thousands of local people that would take a punt on that.
I took out the 5 year membership for the Snowdonia Highland Railway which has now run out. It gave a substantial reduction on fares to eligible cardholders. I used mine twice so no loss to the rail company, in fact they gained as I took full paying guests of mine who were staying with us.
I haven't been to the Mountain Zoo in years but would probably take visitors there if it was less expensive for a repeat visit for myself every time I did so.

Earlier today when I looked out of my front windows I could see Rhos on Sea quite clearly but a low cloud just hung over the woods and it was a strange sight.
Over the last few hours the cloud has risen and visibility has gone down to about 100 yards and has put paid to any work I had in mind for my garden

I spoke to my friend from Prestatyn last night and he told me that the travellers who had camped out in a Prestatyn car park have left the site.
He then said that they had moved to Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay but I hope he was only  joking after what he told me about what they got up to in Prestatyn          &shake&

Hi Hugo yes they moved on from there, some went to eirias park, the rest came to Llandudno, we drove down Gloddaeth Ave last night the carpark on the maelgwyn rd side was full of them, the police said they had already conned an elderly couple 😡, caravanettes that spend in the town the council don't make them welcome and put bye laws in place, let's see how long it takes for this useless council to do something.

That's bad news for the Bay and for Llandudno Norman.    They were trying to sell stuff in Prestatyn too and apparently the stuff that they were selling didn't work
In the Prestatyn car park the Council provided two portable toilets for them but some of the travellers didn't use them and just used the car park floor instead  if you know what I mean       $fan$   
Caravanettes would be an easy target for the Police but how many vehicles did the Police check from the travellers group?       &shake&

A “flagship” assessment centre for children with complex needs has been given the thumbs up from councillors.

The proposal for three new buildings on the site of now demolished Meadow Lodge, on Abergele Road adjacent to Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay, was heard at this week’s Conwy county council planning committee.
