Regarding the flats on Deganwy Avenue, the basement flat in the left hand building was the one up for auction although I don't know if it sold.  The whole property was bought by a couple of builders from Rhyl just before the credit crash.  They made a start by getting a local firm of leaded glass specialists to remove the beautiful glass that has now been replaced by timber as seen in Dave R's picture.  I am sure this was not to restore it!  Next they removed every thing else of value, dug a trench in the front and have never been seen again.  The Lorretta Hotel have complained continuously and absolutely nothing has been done.

I took a walk on St Georges Place this evening, and I looked on with envious eyes through the windows of The White Heather and St Georges hotels.
There were some lovely, well dressed people enjoying thier evening...
But then I realised that, as soon as they leave the hotel, and turn towards town, maybe to do a little shopping?  ...visitors are confronted by sights such as the one below.    Far too many entire rows of shops and buildings empty.

Possibly going to electrify it - shocking way to treat such a lovely building!     L0L

Good news in the Weekly News that Billingtons Garage is to be demolished.

"ONE of the biggest eyesores in Conwy could finally be demolished by the summer. Muller Property Holdings, owners of the dilapidated Llanrwst Road site, have lost their appeal against Conwy County Councilís demolition order at Llandudno Magistrates Court, and have to pay £4,000 costs to the authority. Last October Conwy served a notice requiring the demolition of the building and clearance of the site, and the Cheshire-based property developer appealed against it. They now have less than three weeks to appeal against the district judgeís decision. If they donít lodge another appeal, the notice will take a month to take effect, and the company will have another month to comply with it. If they donít comply, Conwy Council could step in to demolish the former garage itself, and would charge Muller for the work."

Well here we are and I think we would all agree one way or the other, that the summer is here. So when is something going to happen, this summer, next summer ..........

It looks horrendous, and the thing is, that metal sheeting doesn't even protect it particularly well, it can be 'peeled' back fairly easily. I understand also that a Locksmith was busy inside the Hotel changing the locks yesterday - has it finally been sold maybe, and the new owners are protecting the building until work can begin?

I heard that Wetherspoons have bought it.  Big Disco on the ground floor and lots of other plans etc.  Don't know any fine detail.

Wetherspoons don't operate discos! Might be a Wetherlodge:

There is going to be a hotel section so probably you're right.    Z**

Never heard of Wetherlodge myself but quick search reveals it is part of Wetherspoons.

It's the equivalent of Travelodge.

If it happens, it will certainly be good news for both the town as a whole and businesses in the vicinity.  ;)

No, Wetherspoons don't run Disco's... but they do own the Lloyds No 1 bars chain .... who DO run Disco's and very vibrant ones at that!
Maybe it could be one of them?

This has puzzled me too. The work has been taking months and has involved many people, usually 5 or more cars and vans outside it every day. Maybe a new HQ for Llandudno Regeneration Partnership?  :laugh:
