Article about tourist tax says the Welsh and Scottish governments are already tabling legislation to allow local authorities to introduce them.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13420411/Bournemouth-UK-resort-tax-tourists-staying-hotel-owners-approve-67-fee-family-four-spending-week.html

Bournemouth has become the first seaside resort in the UK to introduce a 'tourist tax' as business owners voted to approve measures which will see a family of four charged an extra ?34 for a week's stay.

We live in an era of 'how much can we squeeze out of the tourist'

Conwy Council need to be careful about introducing this, already second home owners and smaller holiday let's are disappearing from the town sold off. The locals still have problems buying due to the low wage economy.

The slow decline will only be accelerated by another tourist tax.

Plans for 14 homes at tennis courts in Colwyn Bay were refused ? but are likely to be resubmitted.

Northfield Property Development Ltd applied to Conwy County Council?s planning department, seeking permission to build 14 homes at the former sports court on Oak Drive, Colwyn Bay.

A planning committee at Bodlondeb this week heard the land was previously used as tennis courts by Rydal Penrhos but was sold by the school.

Planning officers had initially advised councillors to back the plans, which were submitted in two separate planning applications, one for three homes and another for eleven.

Korean energy giant in North Wales nuclear power station plans
Kepco will hold talks with the UK Government

A Korean stated-owned energy giant has emerged as a new bidder to deliver a much needed new nuclear power station in North Wales. While at an early stage Kepco is looking to build a new reactor at Wylfa in Anglesey.

The site has long been mooted for a new power plant. However, to date a financial model to make such a project viable for private sector investment has proved elusive. Japanese industrial giant Hitachi abandoned its plans back in 2019, writing off ?2.1bn in the process.
