Good news!
Iíve been told today that the green light has been given to get the extensive repairs done to the pier near the Happy Valley gates.
It will begin quite soon, but it will mean quite serious disruption throughout the summer season, for approximately four months.
Access is likely to be quite severely restricted because itís a major job to pull up a large stretch of decking, then the beams underneath, and then replace the steel girders underneath that.
It also involves taking the side railings off the pier.
However, you canít make an omelette without breaking eggs, so letís be thankful itís getting done!

Wonder if that means the Pier's owner has come to an arrangement over the Pavilion redevelopment as he said he wouldn't do work on the pier till he knew its future was secure.

No, no arrangement.
Itís a straightforward business decision.
If he didnít get it fixed, then the Health and Safety Guys, and the fire brigade were likely to force him to limit the amount of people allowed on the pier.

You are right Fester we did the steel and decking along from your old kiosk and the bend to the grand in the early 70 s, that part they will be doing takes a battering so has to be done, that work doesn't come cheap either.

I noticed that some of the lighting mounted on the handrails by the Play Area has recently been replaced. It looks as though the original cast iron standards (dating back to 1876) have been sawn off and replaced with what looks like scaffolding poles with a light stuck on top?

One for the young ones.

CBeebies favourites Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Chris Jarvis and Robert the Robot were in the region earlier this week shooting a one-off special episode of Stargazing.
The mini-series introduces children to the wonders of the night sky and the universe.

Some of the locations included on the cable cars of the the Great Orme, the town's beach and Llandudno Pier, where they set up their 'mission control' , the episode, which is that's due to be aired next month.
