The only sign of life is that seagull overhead.

The Pier was closed again this morning, there were lots of people milling about outside the main entrance but they were unable to walk up the pier.

On the subject of repairs: if my reading of the covenants contained in the Pier Conveyance are correct, 6 piers are resposable for: and I quote

"And also that the Llandudno Company ( now 6 Piers ) shall and will unless and until their said Pier Landing stage and other works or some parts thereof shall cease by due authority of law to be open for public use at all times will and effectually uphold maintain and repair the said Pier Landing stage and all necessary works and conveniences connected therewith or so much thereof as shall be authorised for full use in a state and condition fit and proper for public use"

I wonder how they got out of that one, or why, when the Landing Stage was closed due to its unsafe condition, the Council didn't serve them an enforcement order to repair and restore it for Public use.
This covenant specifically applies to the new (current) Landing Stage, in a Conveyance dated 3 March 1970:

""The Purchaser hereby covenants with the Queen's Majesty and Her Successors and as a separate covenant with the Commissioners at all times to keep the said berthing dolphins and the said extensions to the landing stage at the head of the said pier in a good state of repair to the reasonable satisfaction of the Commissioners.""

I have to wonder if the pier's management have lost the location of their marbles, how they raise rents and then keep closing it without even putting up a sign saying' sorry we are closed due to 'xyz', will be open 'xyz''  it's all bonkers in my book :roll:

I thought the Pier always closed for repairs in the closed season. I know it went out of fashion for a while went Leisure Parks bought it from First Leisure but if it ensures the long term survival of the Pier how can you object?

Nothing to do with maintenance, just management not been bothered to unlock the gates. It was eventually opened at about 12pm today.
