. personally I don't see it being built on for housing any time soon but I might be wrong, a tourism based use would make more sense.

I hope that you are right Dave but remember this is Mostyn Estates' land and they will do anything to get this farmland turned into a housing estate.
Just wait until Anwyl finish building those houses and it won't be long afterwards before planning applications are made.   I just hope that I'm wrong but watch this space

Giant wind farm off Llandudno given go-ahead by UK Government
Awel y M?r Offshore Wind Farm is the biggest renewable investment for a decade

A giant wind farm off the coast of North Wales has been given the go-ahead by UK Government. Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, Claire Coutinho has granted consent to RWE?s Awel y M?r Offshore Wind Farm, which will be sited off the coast of Llandudno.

It would be Wales? largest renewable energy investment this decade and be located alongside the operational 576 megawatt (MW) Gwynt y M?r Offshore Wind Farm. RWE say it will create hundreds of skilled jobs during construction and operation, both directly and throughout the supply chain.

LLANDUDNO?s high street has undergone a rigorous cleaning process, thanks to the hard work of a community group.   ref  pioneer

Members of The Friends of Mostyn Street group were ?out in force? to weed, clear and sweep the area in front of the library and Victoria Centre.

Benches, railings and other areas were cleared of leaves and rubbish, leaving impressive before and after shots.

The group meet each Wednesday for an hour, and are looking for new members.

A spokesperson for the group said: ?The Friends of Mostyn Street were out in force again this evening, weeding, clearing and sweeping.

?We swept the leaves and rubbish from under the circular benches and scraped the weeds from there and underneath the benches and railings outside the Victoria Centre.

?We?re always looking for new joiners and meet each week for an hour.

?We provide all tools, gloves etc., you just provide your labour to whatever level you?re able. All ages and abilities are given a very warm welcome!?

AN ARCHAEOLOGIST will deliver a talk in Llandudno next month, entitled ?Discovering the Hillforts of Iron Age Wales?.

Dr Toby Driver, senior archaeologist at the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, will give the talk on Thursday, October 12.

It has been arranged by social enterprise Ships' Timbers, and will be held at Assembly Hall at Llandudno Town Hall, on Lloyd Street.

Debbie Wareham, chair of Ships' Timbers, said: ?Ships? Timbers was delighted to receive some funding from Welsh Government?s Social Isolation and Loneliness programme in order for people to take part in activities, and attend events related to local archaeology, heritage, and the natural environment.

That should be an interesting talk with Toby Driver.    Apart from the hillforts in Conwy there are a number of good examples of hill forts on the hills in the Vale of Clwyd and the best one of all must be Tre'r Ceiri on the Llyn Peninsular which is well worth seeing if you are interested in hill forts

Spotted this on Saturday, but could not read the message..................

A PERSON made a unique marriage proposal to their partner using a sky banner that flew over Llandudno.   pioneer

The banner, which read ?Vishenka will you marry me?? followed by a love heart, was seen flying over the town and the Great Orme by residents on Saturday, 23 September.

While it remains unknown if Vishenka accepted the proposal, residents took to social media to congratulate the couple.

'Exciting' regeneration plan 'could change the face' of Llandudno
Ideas range from pop-up restaurants to electric sea gliders travelling from Liverpool

A regeneration plan which "could change the face of Llandudno" and attract young people and families to the town was backed by Conwy Council's cabinet this week. Members voted in support of the Llandudno 10 Year Regeneration Plan, a vision to target funding opportunities from Welsh Government.

The aim of the plan is to create a reinvigorated Llandudno, making it a distinctive and desirable place in which to live, invest, do business, and visit. Consequently, the plans listed in the report are aspirational, but the report will be used as a basis to target funds such as pots available from Welsh Government.

Ideas included in the report vary widely, but proposed are pop-up and floating restaurants, food vans, street food, and gazebos offering food and drink. Other ideas include a farmers? market at Bodafon Field, an outdoor theatre at Happy Valley, and extending the tram?s operation season.

I hope this doesn't spoil the natural beauty of the town and fill it with tourist tat.

Never mind extending the season the trams run, they should extend the times too so that enable people can enjoy the sunsets and it needs the cafe/bar's  extended opening to match.

Petition calling for return of Llandudno's sandy beach handed to Welsh Government
The petition has 12,500 signatures and should now be debated the Senedd

Mr Sargeant is the chairman of the petitions committee at Welsh Government. Cllr Turner started the petition two months ago to lobby for sand to be put back on the beach after rocks were placed on the seafront in 2014 following Welsh Government-funded sea defence work.

A MAN who has been seen busking across Llandudno by playing the piano has told of his relief that one of the town?s retail parks has said he can return to its premises.

This left Tim, who has autism and finds playing the piano in public a great benefit for his mental health, feeling ?sad and upset?, but Mostyn Champneys has since welcomed him back.

The retail park said Tim has never been unwelcome at Mostyn Champneys, and that through human error, he was mistakenly given incorrect advice by a new member of the team.
