Re: Llandudno Pier ..............Waverley Steamer crashed into pier
« Reply #1051 on: September 04, 2020, 03:24:31 PM »
The recently relaunched Waverley Steamer has cancelled the rest of its sailings this season after it crashed into a pier on Arran.

Emergency services were called to Brodick Pier at around 5.28pm on Thursday.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said 213 passengers and 26 crew were on board at the time of the collision.

Of those, 24 people reported injuries and were treated at the scene with a number taken to hospital on Arran or on the mainland by helicopter.

A statement on the MCA website said: "HM Coastguard was made aware at 5.28pm yesterday (September 3) of an incident in which a paddle steamer collided with Brodick Pier on the Isle of Arran.

"A coastguard search and rescue helicopter from Prestwick and two Helimed were sent, along with Arran coastguard rescue team.

Many will celebrate this fact.... but be careful what you wish for!

Sounds promising but let's hope that it's not fake news

THE sudden appearance of a fish and chip shop on Llandudno pier has left residents and councillors alike wondering if it has been put in the right 'plaice'.

Conwy County Borough Council planning officers are investigating Ďconcerns' over the structure which first appeared on the pier before Bank Holiday weekend.

CCBC officials say they did not receive a planning application for the shop, but it turned up on the pier regardless.

Shaped like a lighthouse, the chippy was first spotted in its location near the entrance of the pier just before Bank Holiday weekend, and instantly divided opinion among locals.

The Planning Police did indeed turn up Steve, only to find they were powerless to act because it's a temporary structure which is on wheels on private land and given the fact they were all for approving that Monstrosity of a development on the Pavilion Site, I think they losted all moral authority to judge Alan Williams Lighthouse.

CONWY County Borough Council have confirmed that 'no breach of planning control has been committed' by the arrival of a fish and chip shop on Llandudno pier.

CCBC planning officers had been investigating following the sudden appearance of the new fish and chip shop on the pier just before Bank Holiday weekend.

They had been looking into the matter after becoming 'aware of concerns' raised by members of the public.

However, the council has today confirmed that no breach has been committed by pier owner Adam Williams as the structure is only temporary.        ref Pioneer

The top section of Adam's Lighthouse is missing this morning. Don't know if he's taking it down completely like he said he would, either way I'll keep you all posted  $good$

Coronavirus safety signs installed on Llandudno pier have been torn down by an intruder and hurled into the sea, says the angry owner.

Adam Williams said the man pulled down about 20 signs from the pier during the incident on Friday night.

He said: "Itís needless vandalism. Itís annoying, especially as it happened during the lockdown.

From facebook:

It is with a great deal of regret that we have to announce that Llandudno Pier will close from 6pm on Friday 4th December, until at least Thursday 17th December (subject to Welsh Government Review). With our Arcades forced to close, the rest of our Business is not viable at this time of year. Therefore we have no option but to close. We will be fully open (weather dependant) upto 6pm Friday 4th December, so please come along and support us if you can before then. Whilst we are away we hope you all stay Safe & Well, and if we don't see you before a Lovely Christmas. All the best Simon & The Team @ Llandudno Pier...
