An application has gone in to CCBC for 3 exterior loudspeakers and 2 outdoor surveillance cameras to be attached to the front facade at Dylan's Llandudno. Now I can understand the surveillance cameras, but I'm a bit worried as to the reason behind the exterior loudspeakers  ??? What does everyone else think?

Hopefully they are planning to put on some raves in the early hours of the morning. Should prove very popular with the young folk  $good$

Anything that's not Broadway. But not sure I classify as 'young folk' anymore...

Sorry to resurrect this controversial topic, but based on my observations this last few days, I couldnít help myself.
I canít help wonder what the visitors to the town are going to make of it in 2018?
The stretch of Mostyn St which used to house M&S Menswear and Greenwoodís looks terrible now.
Thatís prime retail space and there are no signs of anything being proposed to replace those great traditional businesses.
Worse is to come when M&S main outlet disappears from the high street.
Clonmel St and St Georgeís Place, despite being central to Llandudno, now have glaring gaps as failed businesses have vacated property. Little or nothing to see or spend money on there.
The Pier had a much reduced number of shops in 2017, and several kiosks were left empty all year.  In 2018 I am aware of several others who will not be returning.
The Pier gates on Happy Valley Rd are permanently closed, awaiting major structural improvements to the pier steelwork, which to date has no schedule to begin.  So, parking on HV road is a waste of time and money now.  In addition, the fishing tackle shop is also closed down.
They may not get done at all if Mr Waldron goes ahead with his Pavilion development, Mr Williams had made that absolutely clear.
There may be a colossal building site to contend with for more than a year there.
Itís half term now, and the weather was OK at the weekend, (Iíve worked in far worse), but not a single shop on the seaward end of the pier was open, and only a couple at the landward end.  It used to be a busy fortnight, weather permitting, and would kickstart the new season.

Returning to Mostyn Street, itís an inescapable fact that there are more homeless people sleeping in the shop doorways than ever before.  Itís a tragedy I know, and itís a national problem, but itís not a Ďgood lookí for visitors to see.
Almost every cashpoint in town also has a beggar or homeless person beside it, for obvious reasons.
The number of buskers, mostly of an appalling standard, has increased greatly. Many of these are just begging in a different guise.
From 5pm onwards, itís embarrassing to try and have a walk around town, let alone a peaceful night out.

Iím not saying that visitors wonít come this year, Iím simply saying that their experience will be not as they remember it.  Will they want to return in anywhere like similar numbers?

I was just about to ask if anyone knew why the gates to the pier on Happy Valley are permanently locked, so thanks for that info Fester. When Mr M was recovering from an illness we would park our car in the disabled bays nearby and have a short walk on the pier, ideal as there are so many seats to sit on when he became breathless. What's the point in having these parking bays when to get to anything it's too far to walk now.  &shake&

Those buskers are terrible, especially that young punky looking lad, he makes Johnny Rotten sound like Pavarotti!

At least we have the Monkey man to keep visitors entertained  $good$

Thereís also the expense of everything.
The rides on the pier had gone up alarmingly last year, as did the food and drink.
Trip Advisor was replete with complaints about both.
Iíve noticed new signage on the Pier burger shop, prices have increased yet again.

In the King's Head last night, my wife and I were charged £10.20p for 2 drinks, which are usually £8.60 in the Snooze.
But, in most towns and cities they would be around £6.00
