A decision on a £15m accommodation complex at the Llandudno Pier Pavilion site is likely to be deferred until after the local elections in May.
Planning officers at Conwy council are set to decide on whether to recommend the plans, but many believe the earliest a decision will be reached is now June.
The plans have been splitting opinions in the Welsh seaside resort since their publishing, but the decision is now in the hands of the council alone following the passing of the deadline to submit opinions to the officers.
Dozens of responses were received before the closing, and owing to this Mostyn Estates and Llandudno Pier have asked for extra time to respond fully.
Developer Alan Waldron submitted his proposals last month for the site next to the pier, which has lain empty for more than 20 years after the original pavilion burnt down.
He has declared that is determined to restore the site to its former glory and give Llandudno a new, modern and quality building it can be proud of.
