People in Conwy are facing mounting challenges in finding a home as pressures on the housing market continue to increase.

On Wednesday (28/02/18), as Conwy County Borough Council looks to finalise its Housing Strategy for 2018-2023, councillors will look at the importance of someone’s home in determining their potential in life, in terms of their health, education, employment, and participation in the community.

Conwy council's new headquarters will cost taxpayers almost £1.5m a year in rent for the next 40 years, it has been revealed.

The building at Colwyn Bay, where 700 staff will be employed, cost £38.5 million to build.
But taxpayers will have to foot a £58m rent bill, which will be linked to the retail price index.

Any repair bill must be met by the tenant rather than the landlord and there is no break clause in the lease.

All councils in Wales are facing real terms cuts to their funding from the Welsh Government next year.

The Isle of Anglesey, Conwy, Flintshire, Powys, Monmouthshire and Gwynedd are the worst hit.
Six south Wales councils can expect more cash, but the increases are below the inflation rate of 2.7%.

Conwy taxpayers face staggering £142m bill for council's new HQ
Authority could end up paying up to £7m a year in rent by the time the building is nearly 40 years old.

The daily Post has photos of copper cladding damaged by last night's winds.

You can see why the developer insisted on a repairing lease, if 40pmh wind can do that to a new building.

Things are never so bad that they can't get worse.

I never said it was your fault; I said I was blaming you.
