Resident’s dismay at new signage on Colwyn Bay beach about dogs ban

NEW signage has been erected on a beach in Colwyn Bay highlighting the area on it which dogs are banned from entering.

At a cabinet meeting in October, county councillors in Conwy voted for a new public consultation to take place on whether dogs will be allowed to go on Colwyn Bay Beach.

The cabinet was voting on a new Dog Control Public Space Protection Order, which governs where dogs can be walked across the county.

This order was first put in place in 2017, then updated in 2020, but expired last October.

Costa coffee is closing two cafes in North Wales - opinions are divided over the news
The coffee shop giant will shut the sites this weekend

On social media people were divided about the news. Many said they would miss Costa in their town and also expressed sympathy for the local staff affected.

Others said it would actually be good for the independent cafes in each of the areas.

New beer garden planned for North Wales Wetherspoon pub
The chain wants to convert some vacant land into a new seating area

A Wetherspoon pub in North Wales could soon have a new beer garden. JD Wetherspoon PLC has applied to Conwy County Council, seeking planning permission for the beer garden at The Picture House, Princes Drive, Colwyn Bay.

The pub company wants to create the beer garden on vacant land on a brownfield site adjacent to the pub. But the publican requires a change of use for the land.

A FORMER church in Old Colwyn will be converted into a café, gallery and residential space, after an extensive planning process was finally approved.

Plans to convert the vacant St Catherine’s Church, on Abergele Road, were withdrawn by developer Adrian Gaskell last year, at the insistence of the local authority.

But Mr Gaskell’s updated proposal has now been given the green light, with the Grade II listed church to house a “multi-purpose” café and gallery.

The top floors, including the tower, will become a residential unit, with the tower to also see an additional mezzanine and the retention of its “historic” bells.

Council explains why no Access All Eirias concerts in 2024 and if could come back
Access All Eirias concerts have brought some massive names to Colwyn Bay for more than a decade

Access All Eirias concerts have brought some massive names to Colwyn Bay for more than a decade. From Tom Jones to Little Mix and Elton John the gigs brought thousands to the stadium in the seaside town.

It brought a summer feelgood factor to the town and helped bring in money as part of the efforts to regenerate the area. But there are no concerts organised for this year much to the disappointment of many in the community and wider area.

The stadium is owned by Conwy County Borough Council but the events were organised by Orchard Live. The company ceased trading at the end of summer 2023. They said: "Despite the best efforts of a very talented team, Orchard Live has been unable to recover from the consequences of the pandemic, and, after exploring all possible strategies to avoid this action, has made the difficult decision to put Orchard Live into creditors voluntary liquidation."
