"The final precast concrete stepped revetment units are due to be placed this week, which will then see the crane and specialist lifter demobilised.  We are still working hard to address the snagging issues with the surface water outfall in the western extent of the scheme, and will be hoping to publicise a timetable for a section of beach to re-opened along with access details later this week."

Latest from CCBC on Beach Development dated 15/7/14 did anyone see the timetable anywhere???

Watched  another 5 dolphins feed and playing off Colwyn Bay last night, viewing from the roof of the watersports centre. Such a treat!! I did watch myself near the cubes though, should have been designed to be rounded off( no sharpe edges. A little dodgy I suppose.

Strangely the car park on the  west side of the harbour is in Denbighshire.

Conwy's Kinmel Bay car park is on St ASaph Avenue North adjacent to Asda.


Are you sure about that Alw as the Conwy County map seems to include that little outcrop in Kinmel Bay?     I know that the old Parish Boundaries were strange but it still seems that the part of Kinmel Bay in Denbighshire starts just south of the Railway Bridge

I think Denbighshire Council own land on the west bank as part of the Foryd development, it does not mean it is within that County.

What many of us suspected: CCBC, apparently, will be paying for alterations to Porth Eirias - to accommodate Bryn Williams' kitchen. CCBC will consider a report (in August) about the cost of the structural changes needed.

From tomorrow's Weekly News:

And it will, after all the hype, be the BIGGEST FLOP IN TOWN.

Why can't Bryn's kitchen be adapted to fit the building? Although as we know the design is awful! And if the skip is unsuitable, why doesn't he open his Bistro somewhere else? I still believe that a bistro is completely wrong for that location, it needs simple tea, coffee, cold drinks, chips, burgers etc by a beach!

  going back seven or eight posts the subject got way off C.B. waterfront and a few members started writing about a bit of Denbighshire on the west side of the blue bridge
   So I will carry on here and say that in the early 1960s the Rhyl bin men used to travel over the bridge, turn left before the Harbour Hotel (or whatever it is now called) and collect one bin from the house built where the old bridge supports can still be seen, going back to the 1920s. And then go all the way back to Rhyl.
  This was all to do with town and/or county borders except that the western side of the bridge was then Denbighshire (thats right, Denbighshire has moved lock stock and barrel from one side of the bridge to the other) and the eastern side was Flintshire.

Why are CCBC so keen to have this Bistro and what benefit, if any will it give the local ratepayers?

Mike, I think they are desperate to get some income on the Skip / White elephant to try to justify it's existence! We still await the overdue reply to BMD's FOI request about costs etc. I also await the reply to my claim over my fall last week!  &shake&

In  the year 2013/2014 the Ski Club generated 6,375 for the use of the skip and facilities.  Not a lot, but every bit helps.  If it were also allowed to be used by the general public it could probably make a lot more!

Here's the link to the Daily Post piece on "additional funding... required to carry out the structural changes and fit-out" of Porth Eirias:

(I think the person who wrote the headline misunderstood - it's not 3.7m for the proposed alterations).

Meanwhile, David Jones MP says he's sent an FoI request to CCBC for detailed information regarding what's happening with the Bryn Williams bistro lease.

I may suggest to the FoI online site (whatdotheyknow.com) that any requests to CCBC are automatically signed "May the farce be with you!", rather than the standard "yours faithfully").

STOP PRESS: Tom Davidson has tweeted that he's heard the proposed cost of Porth Eirias refit will be "around 300K". That's a lot of dosh to make it a fit place for a kitchen! How many people will they have to serve with bistro-style fish 'n' chips before they make that much money back?
