I think corruption  has a part to play , I am still waiting for an explanation why the newly built apartments have not been sold there has to be a reason .

You said it Robbie and I won't argue with that.                 Which apartments are you referring to?

Hugo ref affordable housing I've asked our MP what does he reckon the price of affordable should be, he's still trying to come up with a figure, one of my lads bought one of the beech homes off the 470, the same house on the new development has gone up 70 k.

An affordable home is one that is provided at 20% less than the market value, either for rent or purchase. Social Housing to rent is owned by one of the six housing associations we have in Conwy County. A person has to be on the Affordable Homes Register to take advantage of these offers & the register covers all 6 Associations. Developers don't like building these properties as they can't make much of a profit being 20% less than market value.

Thanks very much for providing that information Meleri,  sadly as we have seen in the last 18 months it means that they are still not affordable for local people.
Second home owners have seriously inflated the prices of property in this area and pushed the prices up beyond the reach of young local people as per Norman's previous post.
There are no starter homes being built in the area and we are both old enough to remember the housing estates being built in the 1960's and 1970's in Gyffin, Penrhyn Bay, Colwyn Heights etc.      I bought my first bungalow in Towyn and it was a new two bedroom detached bungalow and it cost me 3,440.00       It was a struggle then but thanks to a Mr F a building society manager I was able to obtain a mortgage for it.     I remember that all the bungalows had either one or two bedrooms apart from two that had three bedrooms.  There were some three bedroomed houses on the estate too.
Now what are they building?   Large four and five bedroom  detached properties that young locals have got no chance of buying.
I feel sorry for CCBC as these developers are dictating what they are going to do and CCBC seems powerless to stop it

So if ccbc are saying we own the skip why are we barred from using the toilets.  More dodgy dealings.
