Council poised to appropriate more land for children’s 'flagship' assessment centre in Colwyn Bay

NOT everyone is happy a council is poised to appropriate more land for a “flagship” assessment centre for children with complex needs, after hitting several snags with the site.

The proposal for three new buildings on the area of now demolished Meadow Lodge, on Abergele Road adjacent to Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay,  was passed by Conwy county councillors in November last year.

The ground-breaking scheme will house experts assessing appropriate care options for children aged between six and 17 years old.


The aim is to stop the expensive practice of sending children with complex emotional needs out of county and give families a chance to reconcile.

A Conwy county councillor has criticised a proposed 73-home development in Old Colwyn, saying residents are already “infuriated” and the scheme could “sound the death knell of the village”.

Cllr Bob Squire (Eirias ward) has long been an outspoken critic of over-development in the area.

In March last year he said new housing schemes were “destroying the quality of life” for his constituents and putting a strain on local services.

Now he has railed against a mixed planning application on land adjacent to  Bryn Rodyn, Dolwen Road, which is bidding for full permission for 54 homes and outline approval on 19 dwellings.
