HAVE plans for this site in Penmorfa been kicked into the long grass?

That is the question being asked after a full planning application - due to be submitted this Summer 2021 - failed to materialise.

Earlier this year, Anwyl Homes appointed a development team and a consultation process was planned for the Spring.

The developer has since said that they had been hit by building costs as well as other issues, but they remain "committed" to ensuring the West Shore site is developed.

Phil Dolan, managing director for Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, said: “Due to the ongoing impact of Covid on build costs and our supply chain, there is a need to keep all sites under review to ensure they are viable to develop at the right time. This is particularly important for apartment developments which require substantial financial resource and many specialist contractors and suppliers due to their bespoke nature.

"Options for this site remain under regular review and we remain committed to the long-term future of the Penmorfa site.”

What a load of rubbish spouted by Phil Dolan     &shake&
They applied for planning permission in 2008 and the photo below shows the apartments that Anwyl wanted to build.    Why didn't they build those apartments then and not wait 13 years to have a rethink?

Hugo Profit and more profit and double or treble the number of apartments originally applied for , if CCBC had any serious concerns about the site they have plenty of measures they could take .

You are spot on about the profits Robbie,  It's just ££££££'s  when Anwyl think about the Penmorfa site,  but they did pay £2.4 million for it about 15 years ago.
I'm surprised that a model of the last proposed apartment block was not displayed in St John's Church as it would have complimented the other Lego items

Anwyl will be lucky to hit any sort of targets if the rumour regarding Factories & Industrial Plants making bricks & cement are slowing down & some shutting altogether, due to rocketing Gas & Electric prices. Plus the fact if they do remain open there will be massive price hikes, making properties a lot more expensive, so could be left with a lot of unsold houses on their hands.

Developer to build over 100 homes at North Wales seaside town
Anwyl Homes has acquired land in Rhyl to extend the Parc Aberkinsey estate


Seems that Anwyl has forgotten about the Penmorfa Hotel site.    It's been about 15 years since the original planning application was granted, how much longer does the town have to wait until this busy firm submits another one for this tatty looking building site?

I thought there was a time limit on planning applications unless you had started some work on the site

Five years, normally, but if you've only put the footings in then it's unlimited, I think.

As Ian has said the time limit is 5 years and this company in 2013 said that work had commenced on the site as "they had laid a pipe to it"
Under a FOI Act I received a letter from CCBC saying that the pipe hadn't reached the development site so it was deemed that work had not been started on the site.

They bought the site around 2006 for £2.4 million so it's a lot of cash to be sitting on even for Anwyl
