Developer says £40m Llandudno Junction supermarket project on track for 2017 start.
The 300 job scheme includes a superstore and restaurants and could be open by 2019

Developers say a £40m superstore and restaurants project is on track to start in 2017 with strong demand from national supermarket chains.

Conwy council gave outline planning permission to the scheme on the Old Brickworks site in Llandudno Junction last year despite considerable opposition.

A developer has dropped a £40m supermarket and restaurants development that was tipped to create 300 jobs.

Conygar Investment Company had secured planning permission for the project on the Old Brickworks site in Llandudno Junction in 2016 despite considerable opposition.

“The outlook for retailers is difficult and we believe that we will be unable to deliver the retail park as planned.
“However, we hope to devise alternative schemes for the site.”

Robert Ware, Chief Executive of The Conygar Investment Company, said: “Things have changed, we had retailers like M&S and Next who were interested in coming here but you can read in the press what is happening in this sector. The commercial world can change very quickly and we have to adapt to that.

“It means going back and looking again at this site.
“The council want it cleaned up and used for creating jobs.
“We need to assess other options, which could be a different type of retail development or possibly logistics as this is an ideal location."  ref DP

The old Arriva/Crosville Bus Depot is being swiftly demolished. Been a local landmark for so many years.

The last of the old north Wales weekly news has gone in the crusher this week,looking at the planning portal it appears that the road access issues have been addressed. On a separate issue does anyone know what is happening to the Rochelle development at the bottom of junction hill ?.I had heard from a waterboard employee they had built too close to water and foul drain.

Llandudno Junction Cineworld is to close with the company set to close all its UK sites in the coming weeks.

The closures come as the release of the latest James Bond film was further delayed from November to spring 2021, the PA news agency understands.

The closure of its 128 sites across the country will put up to 5,500 jobs at risk.

Reports that it is hoped that the Cineworld cinemas will be able to reopen next year, with staff being asked to accept redundancy in the hope of rejoining the company when theatres open again.

Marle hall is an interesting building that is often overlooked locally.

The site of Marle Hall dates back to the 1500s where there was originally a monastery. A grand Jacobean mansion thought to have been built in 1661. A fire in the eighteenth century reduced all but the south-east wing to ruins. Through the untiring efforts and vision of William T. Smedley, Secretary of the Birmingham Hospital's Saturday Fund, Marle Hall was rented in 1893, restored and opened in 1894 as a Convalescent Home for Women. Subsequently purchased and equipped for 80 patients by 1903, the Hall  remained a convalescent home for many years. During World War II, the home accommodated children from city areas, and later sick soldiers. In more recent years, Warwickshire County Council converted Marle Hall into the Outdoor Education Centre that it is today. 

THE FUTURE of an outdoor learning centre used by generations of Warwickshire youngsters hangs in the balance.

Since it was bought by Warwickshire County Council in 1971, young people across the county have visited Marle Hall in Llandudno for educational, adventure courses.
