Good point, Ian.  That's also the reason that Clifton Road is narrower than the surrounding Mostyn freehold streets.

I agree. They are obviously acting in their own financial interests, but then, don't we all. They do make an effort to carry out renovation work on their properties to a high standard that enhances Llandudno. The refurb/new shopfront at Diskos is a good example.

I think they do a good job and they will have their critics but thats life,i just wish they would be a bit more verbal on issues around town.

A Planning Application has been submitted for the derelict Gwrych Castle in Abergele. Plans and artists impressions of the development can be seen here:

That was interesting. Thanks DaveR.
I always thought this would make a great location for a theme park. A ride like Hex at Alton Towers would really suit the spooky castle look.

The Augusta Apartments in Augusta St, Llandudno. Abandoned since the owner was made bankrupt, this large building is deteriorating rapidly.

I was walking down Arvon Ave today and, either my eyes are playing up, or is the facade of the Clarence Hotel buckling further out?

Looks like the whole lot forward of the big crack is about to come off.
All this rain won't be helping either!

The building had serious subsidence problems a few years ago and I can hardly think they have got better over time!  Next thing we will see is a load of supporting scaffolding, keep away  and  danger signs, and we will finish with yet another major blot on the landscape    :rage:

Call me a sceptic, but I have a feeling that another 'Penmorfa' situation is on the cards.
The crack in the pic has been there for a very long time, but as Dave says it is bulging in a very ominous manner. There is a very evil smell at that corner as well, hope something isn't about to erupt  :o

What is the latest on the Clarence, i fully expect the station to start in September then work stopping  for one reason or another,this town seems to love cock ups.I wonder how Mostyn Estates are getting on with marketing the Tudno Castle as for CCBC and the Pier Pavillion its buisness as usual.I have got to add the town beach to the list now,the green rocks are awesome.

I prophesied at the end of 2011 that the eyesore list would be exactly the same at the end of 2012, with perhaps a few additions.

But then I was forced to re-think, as the news about The Clarence, The Tudno Castle, and our noble Mayor's promise to sort out the Pier Pavilion were trumpeted.

But, I fear I was right all along.... and another year of let downs and disappointments will leave us worse than we were.

I also feel that The Grand Hotel is looking dilapidated, tired and unkempt.
It should be added to the eyesores list.

I agree that The Grand is now not so grand. All the hotels on & around the prom put it to shame. At the back of the hotel (pier side which is seen by all the tourists) it looks very neglected & in the top of all the drainage pipes by the balconies, there are mini gardens.
