It must be in last year's accounts because it's taken over a year to build the new retirement complex. Mind you although there is nothing intrinsically wrong with timber frame construction for choice I prefer the construction of the other complex on Gloddaeth Ave.  $good$

The construction and general appearance are fine ( soon to be hopefully finished), but having obtained a brochure for said flats the costs are very high compared to others in the area.

You are of course right Norman, the Council were only involved by permitting the change use of the land in the L.D.P.

Not so, the land was owned by CCBC, they had a 'For Sale' sign on the corner for about two years.

Wonder what happened to the report made by a company from Bangor. We could see from the hospice that  they were drilling down in what used to be the tennis court to ascertain what the rocks under were etc. and eventually  came upon sea water .  It remained for sale quite a while after that.

All land has a "Water Table" this being a measurement under the surface where water is generally always available.  Being so close to the sea, and being so low lying, the water table for Llandudno is only a few feet under our roads and houses, and it is not surprising that it is salty!  Often this is the reason for many buildings being built on piles which are sunk down to a substantially firm base.  More technical stuff available from Google.

It seems that incompetence, dishonesty and waste permeate the enitre local government structure...

"Eric Pickles' department has been reprimanded by the Whitehall spending watchdog after running up an unauthorised overdraft of £217 million.

It's an embarrassment for Department for Communities and Local Government with Pickles' regularly lecturing local councils on the need to get their finances under control and George Osborne praising Pickles as "the model of lean government".

Head of the National Audit Office (NAO) Amyas Morse announced that he was "qualifying" his regularity opinion of the department's financial statements because of its breach of Treasury spending limits.

Pickles: the model of lean government no more

The NAO disclosed that the Treasury had imposed a £20,000 fine on his department as a punishment for its poor financial management. (So this is us - the tax payer - imposing a fine on, er...us, the taxpayers)

In a further setback, the NAO found that the department's local government capital expenditure limit of £80,000 had been exceeded by almost £1.2 million as a result of overspending by two of its arm's-length bodies - the Valuation Tribunal Service and the Commission of Local Administration in England.

Chairman of the Commons Public Accounts Committee Margaret Hodge described the failure of the department to control its finances as "a shocking example of incompetence".

"This is an unacceptable abuse and waste of public money that could have been avoided with the right financial oversight," she said.

"I am staggered that the department has been so blase with its resources and so poor at staying within some of its budgets.

"If local authorities, for whom the department is responsible, acted in this way, the department would be down on them like a ton of bricks. The Department for Communities and Local Government must learn lessons and ensure it does not repeat these mistakes."

Is that a recent article Ian?
You see, despite being a Bradford Lad, I am certain that Mr Pickles has been lambasted for wasting similar sums of public money in the past.  Not long past either.

Wilfred Pickles and his Mrs used to give the stuff away just for "Having a go, Joe!"   :D
