The agent involved last time the Tudno Castle development was advertised was Mason and Owen.

This time, I can't find it listed online as yet.   Are we talking demolition do you think?  I hope it can be avoided.

The sign outside the Tudno Castle mentions 'Prescott and Partners'
I was driving, but I think that is what it said.
The only reference I can find on Google talks about Prescott and Partners leasing a hotel in London to expand their 'fine dining experience'    *&( *&(

Here is a link to McCarthy and Stone's development at Plas y Dre. The blurb says:

"Construction of the 42 one and two bedroom development is expected to begin in March 2013 with first sales in July  2013. First occupations are anticipated in March 2014".

Seems an awfully long time to wait. Their development at Cwrt San Tudno was one of their quickest ever sellers so you'd have thought they would get this done quickly. They are due to be given planning permission this week. Maybe the economy? Although older people are far less affected by the downturn in the housing market in many respects, as opposed to struggling first-time buyers.

I was also thinking about the Tudno Castle. It would make a great Waitrose on the ground floor, with apartments/hotel above. Probably about as big a floor area as their Menai Bridge store too.

That's a good idea about the Tudno Castle. Waitrose on ground floor, with a Premier Inn above.  The only drawback with the plan may be Parking, or rather, the lack of it.

I must try and find out how much it is on the market for.

I hope that the Elms Hotel will be sold shortly and will not need to go on the Eyesores list.It's been reduced to 375k if anyone is interested.  ;)

Colin Flannigan of St David's Commercial has purchased Billingtons and has 'exciting ideas' for it.

Check out Eddisons latest sales catalogue Dave on the 21 February 2012 You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login The guide price is now listed at 250,000 plus. It sounds cheap at that price but take my word for it, Its not. The damage that has been done to the property has to be seen to be believed. When I think back to the amount of hard work and money put into the Elms by Willy and Doreen Zwibbden it makes me weep. At the peak of the property boom it was up for sale at 760,000. How times have changed.

I went past the Washington today and was shocked at how tatty it looked. Part of the pavement is even fenced off to protect pedestrians from falling render.

Re the previous posting about Hafodunos Hall-- I spotted this little snippit this morning.

Anyone any idea which graveyard she is buried in ? It looks very like St Michaels in Betwys, but I don't think that the outer stonework there is white.

Surely it will be the one in Llangernyw? It's in the centre of the village just down the lane from Hafodunos.

In summary then, very little has actually been done.... only 'work commencing' on a few.  &shake&

Don't forget, many other eyesores have been added since that original list.

My own house was on the eyesore list for 12 months... until The Great Brian Thomas took control of the situation!  ZXZ

Billingtons' Garage, Conwy

Two men with a digger clearing and tidying up the frontage at present.

Don't think the digger is big enough to demolish the building, although parts of it look as if a good gust of wind would!!
