I'm afraid that there are many people who are just not complying with the lockdown rules, in fact I only know of three people who have not broken the rules in one way or another.     More people were compliant in the first lockdown when car parks were closed and Colwyn Bay had a ban on cars parking on the promenade with a notice saying that any cars that were parked there would be towed away.
Some people seem to defy the law and think like that idiot from Rhos on Sea.   To quote him " Is it not our most basic human right to decide for ourselves what is good and essential for our well being?" 
Then they complain when they are caught breaking the law.        &shake&

Welsh Government offers no guarantee you can travel far when stay at home rule is lifted
The next 21 day restrictions review announcement takes place on Friday, March 12

The Welsh Government has offered no guarantee that people will be able to travel far from their homes when the stay at home rule is lifted.

Since lockdown began in December, people in Wales have been told that they can only leave their home if they have a reasonable excuse, like work, buying essentials or exercise.

And while exercise which starts and finishes at home has been permitted, driving to do so is not.

Two weeks ago, at the last 21-day review, First Minister Mark Drakeford indicated that the stay at home rules would end, Wales Online reports.

However, it does not automatically mean you will be able to travel as far as you like within Wales after this point.

Marks and Spencer's Llandudno relocation hangs on 20 year old planning covenant over food sales
The original deeds for Parc Llandudno come with conditions that would stop the Foodhall from moving in

When Asda moved from that land in the early 2000s to build the large superstore opposite the retail park conditions were placed on the site.

This included a bar on a new supermarket chain coming to Parc Llandudno and a limit on the amount of food that can be sold from units - with no more than 10% of floorspace allowed to be taken up by food products.

This would be around 6,000sq ft at the Debenhams unit.

M&S says it needs around 12,000sq ft to accommodate its Foodhall - around 20% of the space at the unit and 41% of the ground floor.

Conwy Valley holiday village 'that deserves TLC' to be redeveloped in £1m investment
Trem Gwydir, which has Snowdonia views, has been bought by new owners and work is underway to revamp the site

Llanrwst is set to get a major tourism boost later this year with a significant redevelopment of the Trem Gwydir holiday village now underway.

The holiday village, which is located in the centre of the historic Conwy Valley market town, has been open for decades but has needed new investment.

ADVERTISING

Offered for sale in July 2017, it has been purchased by family-owned business Actually Property, which will also operate the holiday park. The sale, worth £625,000, completed last month.

Now the site will now be transformed with significant capital spend, taking the total investment to well in excess of a million pounds.

The 24-lodge holiday park occupies a prime location in the centre of Llanrwst, and comes with scenic views of the River Conwy to the Gwydir Forest and Snowdonia mountains beyond.

The lodges sit in landscaped grounds, with views across the river to the Tu Hwnt i’r Bont tearooms and the town’s picturesque arched stone bridge Pont Fawr – one of the most photographed places in Wales.

At last...........a sensible post about the goats! The damage, smell and mess can be indescribable. anyone, apart from an odd one that seems to think they are wonderful, who lives in the area that Steve has described can verify what it is like to get up in the morning and find yet another damaged wall and decimated plants, let alone the task of sweeping away the excrement.
As an animal lover I can see the attraction, novelty and 'cuteness', but think of the poor goats, speeding drivers don't care, they just carry on like lunatics. More and more will become injured and CCBC, Mostyns and whoever else don't seem to care. It is time some fodder was placed for them back on the Orme. These are not domestic animals and need to be encouraged to go back where they are safe.
