Public consultation on future of historic Conwy building taking place

Conwy County Council

RESIDENTS will have the opportunity to have their say on the future of an historic Conwy building next week.

Plans for the former Conwy Civic Hall will be on display at the building itself on Castle Street.

Nautical Point Limited will apply for full planning permission for the redevelopment of the grade-two listed former library.

The company wants to transform the building into a food hall, restaurant, and 15-room ‘aparthotel’ as part of a mixed-use development.

The public consultation event will provide a second opportunity for residents to comment on the development before a planning application is submitted to the council.

A similar event was held in December.

Nautical Point have worked with Welsh heritage guardians Cadw to come up with ‘sensitive plans’ for the grade-two listed building.

The future of the Civic Hall has been up in the air for years, following pub chain JD Wetherspoon promising to invest £3m, creating 50 jobs in the town in 2018; however, the council’s cabinet turned down that offer, which was the only bid for the site at the time.

Conwy County Council owns the Civic Hall but has agreed to lease the building to the developer on a long lease if planning permission is secured.

The plans will be subject to the usual council planning procedure and will go through another  public consultation once the application is officially registered.

The event will take place at the former Library and Civic Hall Building on Castle Street on Tuesday 23 May between 4 pm and 7 pm.
