Development proceedings for a £15m project on the Llandudno Pier Pavillion site have been hindered as the local council reject plans.
Plans to develop the Pier Pavilion site in Llandudno with a £15m hospitality complex have suffered a setback after being rejected by the town council.
Developer Alan Waldron wishes to restore the site, which has lain empty for more than 20 years, to former glories in order to rejuvenate the historic holiday destination, and drive tourism to the region.
He said of plans: “I truly believe this is a development that will enhance the location, the economy and support tourism, as well as creating jobs in one of the most beautiful towns in the country.”
Waldron, who developed the Deganwy Quay project in Conwy, bought the site for a figure of around £1m and revealed he wanted to develop a “modern and iconic” building.
The council setback however, does not mean the application is over. The decision is advisory and the proposal will still go before planners at Conwy County Council for a final decision at a later date.
