Council finally admits Llanrwst car parks need resurfacing


Conwy Council has finally admitted that its car parks in Llanrwst are in dire need of repair.

A report presented to Councillors on Wednesday admitted that Conwy-owned car parks in Llanrwst are in need of major "resurfacing" work.

Councillor Aaron Wynne of Llanrwst, who has long campaigned to get the car parks resurfaced, welcomed the report claiming the people of Llanrwst "have waited a long time to get a decent car park in the town."

The report notes that "ground investigation is in progress to determine structural condition of base to determine scope of works and accurate cost estimate ahead of consideration of a capital business case for 2022/23."

The report outlined the need to resurface both Watling Street car park and Gwydir Park in Llanrwst, and that Plas yn Dre car park was also in need of maintenance work.

Speaking in the Committee meeting, Llanrwst Councillor Aaron Wynne said:

"I welcome this report. The people of Llanrwst have waited a long time for this resolution and to get a half-decent car park in the town.

"Local people in Llanrwst and the Conwy Valley - as well as tourists - use the car parks to stop and spend in the town. Ensuring our car parks are useable and accessible are vital for the town's recovery post-covid.

"I hope the Council will now announce their timetable to get the work done."
