The smaller the council, the more it's usually beset with in-fighting, petty bickering and bullying.

Nautical Point Ltd Chester are about to put forward to CCBC a planning application to develop the Civic Hall Conwy. The ground floor will comprise market stalls & retail units, with tourism & residential accommodation on the floors above. As part of the scheme the developers will build new toilets on a site near to the development, in place of the older toilet blocks under the building on the quay. I'm really pleased to hear the toilets are going to be part of the application as they are an absolute disgrace & embarrassment to Conwy Town.

It's a very sad picture to see the Conwy High Street so empty but what's the answer?         As soon as the restrictions are lifted then you start to see the number of Coronavirus cases rising.
On TV tonight a survey of people obeying the latest Covid rules was put at just over 50% but I would have thought that it's much much less.      In fact I only know of two households that haven't broken one rule or another.

A CALL for a volunteer to mind Conwy’s public defibrillator has been launched following its theft ( by morons) from the town’s Quay.

The defibrillator was installed by the Community Heartbeat Trust in a classic red telephone kiosk on the Quay.

Martin Fagan, National Secretary of the Trust said: “Regrettably, only a matter of days after the installation, someone stole the defibrillator, and the site has remained empty since.

“We have been unable to find anyone who can regularly check the site, and report back to us via the WebNos governance system, so until we do, we are unable to replace the defibrillator.

“If anyone would like to volunteer to help us manage this site, and also if anyone wishes to make a donation towards the replacement defibrillator (we need to raise £1000), please do contact us at www/communityheartbeat.org.uk.”

The Community Heartbeat Trust is a national charity, working throughout the UK countries. Its aim is to support communities in providing defibrillator projects.     ref Pioneer

A TOWN clerk has resigned after a decision was made to exclude the public and press from a meeting.

The decision to hold a private session was made against the advice of Conwy Town Council clerk, Natasha Flint, as there was nothing on the agenda which constituted ‘confidential business’.

Mrs Flint, who is legally qualified joined the Town Council in 2018, has since tended her resignation to the authority.

She told the Pioneer: “The council has had a letter of resignation from me.

“Until this letter has been accepted by the full Council, I have no comment to make.”

The council’s civic committee went into a private session on Monday March 22, despite advice from the town clerk not to do this because there was nothing on the agenda which constituted confidential business.

It therefore should have remained a public meeting.

I am assuming this is Conwy town, and not the County....

CONWY is among the best destinations in the UK for a ‘babymoon’, according to research by a price comparison website.

comparethemarket.com surveyed 51 locations and considered factors such as restaurants, parks, museums and health care facilities per person living in the area to spend a babymoon – a vacation to celebrate pregnancy.

It found that Conwy was the second best destination, behind the City of London, and ranked the highest in the index for closeness to the beach and best place to go for beachside downtime. Conwy was also ranked second for healthcare facilities, giving parents-to-be peace of mind that medical help is available if needed.

THREE members of trouble-hit Conwy Town Council and its clerk have resigned.

The Authority has been the centre of controversy for some time with allegations and counter allegations, with two councillors being suspended for a month at the end of last year.

Two of the three councillors who resigned are Cllr Terry James, and Cllr Pat Hart, who are married.

The Pioneer reported last December how they had originally been accused of bullying and harassing members of the town council’s staff.

But an investigation by the Ombudsman for Wales found no evidence to support these allegations.

The third councillor to resign is Cllr Martin Craven.

In addition, the Conwy Town Council's clerk, Natasha Flint has resigned from her position.

The Mayor of Conwy, Cllr Emma Leighton-Jones said: “The circumstances surrounding the two resignations received are different but I admit it has been a difficult few months and have to respect the decisions these individuals have made.
