I believe the Castle's Preservation Trust is the new owner, fantastic news for them is this is the case.

Grade I listed Gwrych Castle has been secured by a preservation trust in a move described as a "great moment of history" in Wales.

After 50 years of uncertainty and having fallen into a perilous state-of-disrepair, the future of one of Wales’s most important and fairytale-like country houses is now secure.

The Grade I Iisted Gwrych Castle, Abergele, has been purchased by the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust after the UK government-funded National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) stepped in with the final piece of the financial jigsaw.

NHMF has given a grant of £600,000 in addition to a major grant from the Richard Broyd Charitable Trust, which has enabled the purchase to go ahead.

Full story...

Great news for Dr Mark Baker and the Preservation Trust, hopefully the gradual decline of the last 50 years can now finally be reversed.

My photo gallery of the Castle can be seen here:

Prior to that, Norman, the Order was for the 8th May.

The Government  - as everyone may know - has a 'take out the trash day', which is when they wait until something significant is happening on the news and then slip out bits of legislation, hoping they will go unnoticed. This one might not:

"A radical change to planning laws was smuggled out by the Department for Communities. Councils lose the right to block developments if they have failed to build their fair quota of new housing."
“Nothing is so firmly believed as that which we least know.”   ― Michel de Montaigne

I'm not surprised that these new property owners are fuming in Llanfairfechan

What an awful predicament to be in, those poor people in the properties in Llanfairfechan having that hanging over them, while the powers that be discuss which option to choose.
Not only that but those people should never have been allowed to move into those properties in the first place. The builder put in an application on the 22/5/2018 to discharge Planning condition 4 as Welsh Water had given approval. Condition 4  states " No dwelling hereby approved shall be occupied until the surface water and foul water drainage facilities have been implemented" etc.
A CCBC consultation response stated Welsh Water have no powers or duties to carry out this role and any approvals from them are not relevant for addressing planning requirements. Then on the 2/7/2018 CCBC planning refused to discharge condition 4 saying the application did not provide enough sufficient details regarding surface water runoff etc generated by the development.
I would have thought all this would have come out in the Conveyancing Search which these residents would have paid good money to their solicitor for and the search is carried out with none other than CCBC and other parties. Part of this search should cover whether a future development would have negative impact on the property such as proposals for new roads or traffic schemes and details of drainage and access rights. Sounds like certain departments aren't singing from the same hymn sheet and those residents have wasted money paying for a search that was worthless  >:(

It's reading stuff like this that make my blood boil!

Reading the council spokesman's comments sickens me.

We should start a new thread theme on political correctness.

Last year a travellers site was built on Conwy Morfa with all the facilities, it even has a post box. The site cost over £550,000 funded by central government. Instead of it being intended for 3 long term stay travellers I don't see why they don't let the Travelling Community have it as a short term site instead and let more people have a bite of the cherry, then we wouldn't have these problems reoccurring. I vaguely remember CCBC looking into the need for short term travellers sites and saying they weren't needed.
