It beggers belief that they have no influence on getting it fixed or has it been.

Don't go there Wrex. He is very ill and only has a few weeks left. Try and find another way

Thanks for posting this Blongb, I have tried to contact Wrex to ask him to reword/remove this post, but to no avail. I wasn't sure if what you have put was common knowledge.

Obviously, Wrex wasn't aware of the situation. I have edited his original post.

I have edited a few posts to remove the individual's name.

Below is the reply I received to my FoI request, you may make of it what you will!

1. Discussions have since taken place with the Friends of Happy Valley who are working with Conwy County Borough Council to actively investigate sources of external funding to pay for the renovation works.
 

2. Happy Valley is currently under a 5 year management plan. This management plan began in 2009 at which point discussions regarding the rill took place. It was agreed that the renovation of the rill pond and marginal area be included as a long term objective in the plan with a deadline of completion by the end of 2014.
 

3. The main reason for delaying the restoration of the feature is lack of available finance.  In addition the water feature provides a habitat for reptiles and amphibians including common lizard, palmate newt and common toad.  Care needs to be taken to avoid causing damage to the amphibian populations and any maintenance, such as cleaning, needs to be carried out sensitively.
Wise men have something to say.
Fools have to say something.

I was pleased to see that work is underway to renovate the seating in the Colonnade, last painted in the 1980s, I think! The work is being carried out by CAIS and was organised by the friends of Happy Valley Group You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

A large amount of the old seats were used as firewood, when the area was taken over my a group of the great unwashed, about 4 years ago. So unless some CCTV camera's are installed it could be a case of good money following bad.

We have just had a walk around (un)Happy Valley Gardens and thought we’d like to pass on the current progress of the improvements to the Water Feature

If the Council has got money to waist on monstrosities in Colwyn Bay, why can't we have some for Happy Valley and Llandudno. Or do we have to wait until we are re designated a deprived and derelict area in need of rejuvenation. Because the way it's going "IT WONT TAKE LONG"
