They've got plenty of money. they'd rather sit on it until they decide to do something with it. I believe progress has stalled because Stange were required to carry out a detailed archaeological assessment on the land before starting building.

"The whole development comprises the demolition of the chapel on Church Street, and a stable block and the erection of nine apartments and garages and the conversion of the shop into a café/bar with maisonette above."

That Old Stable is an interesting looking place, there could well be interesting bits under the Red Lion building too.

idn't know the Rowlands family had branched out so much.  I had a summer job with Jimmy and then Billy.  Any of them still around?  I know Jimmy died.  Who runs the company now?

Wowwww. I certainly knew Jimmy Rowlands and Doreen but had no idea Stange's had built such an empire (no I know they don't have the Empire you fool). The big surprises are the Bee and the Snowdon! Many happy memories of the Snowden - brilliant darts team. Used to drink there with my mate Mel (Mel used to run the London too, when Roy Watson - another good guy - was 'convalescing' and I tagged along as helper). Who was that really well liked - justifiably - owner in the 1970s? Derek Riddler, another good mate, behind the bar.

The Bee used to be a lovely old fashioned pub that we invaded after Sunday League matches on that bloody awful Eglwysbach field.

But to turn to my near obsessional concerns these days, I could see no information for any of the Stange pubs about disability wheelchair access.  :rage:

Walking past the Castle Hotel this evening I noticed that a couple of the ground floor windows are half open. Airing the hotel in readiness for the forthcoming season perhaps!

Yes... Medz, after all its infinitely preferable to have the current crumbling eyesore, rather than 'risk' something that might be 1% out of line with planning permission rules.

CCBC should be utterly ashamed of themselves.

That land would make an ideal extension to Parc Llandudno would it not?  ???

 ;D I wish this transport group and the NWWN would concentrate on letting us know where we are up to on the redevelopment of the station and when or if it is ever going to happen ,then try and bring new destinations in,its a disgrace at the moment and nobody gives a damn,the millenium was when this was supposed to have been done ,thats 11 years,it will never catch the Pier Pavillion but its a good second. :rage:

It's been going on for so long now Wrex that in these present economic circumstances I would be surprised if anything happens soon.  A wasted opportunity to develop two important sites in the town.         :rage:
Pen Morfa's catching up on them too, it may only be two years since the centre portion was demolished but it was left to deteriorate by the builders for years before  for financial gain on their part!

A new entry for the Eyesores section, the two derelict houses on Deganwy Ave in Llandudno. I believe the houses (which are linked) are divided into flats, all of which are in separate ownership. I recall one of them coming up for sale a while back, guide price £10,000. As usual, CCBC have taken no action in regard to this property, despite it being in this state for many years.
