Video from our Remembrance Day Wreath Laying 11th November 2021

Llanfairfechan Town Council would like to thank all the organisations and individuals who have supported Llanfairfechan Remembrance 2021. The wreaths have now been laid and are available for everyone to view at the cenotaph. Byddwn yn eu cofio We will remember them.

Llanfairfechan Town Council News 3rd November  2021

Llanfairfechan Town Council would like to update everyone further to the recent discussions and concerns expressed by residents regarding Llanfairfechan's Remembrance event.

Firstly, we would like all residents to know that we fully understand your frustrations and strength of feeling on this matter. As a Town Council, we would like nothing more than for Remembrance Sunday to be commemorated in the same way as it has been in previous years, with a formal service at the cenotaph.

In the process of planning the Remembrance event however, it became clear that this would not be possible. We as a Town Council are classed as an organising body, with a duty of care to ensure the safety of attendees and legal requirements to carry out robust risk assessments. We received advice that an unregulated crowd of people gathering in what is actually a very small area, could pose an unacceptable COVID risk. In previous years, we have had over 200 people attend the Remembrance event. Considering all the information and guidance received, we decided that rather than hosting a service at the cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday, it would be safest to commemorate the day with a wreath laying event and video released online on Remembrance Sunday.

Last year’s 2020 video can be viewed by clicking on the link:

We acknowledge this decision may seem at odds with photos of large crowds of people attending rugby matches and concerts. However we as a Town Council do not have the power to put in place public safety measures employed at these types of events, such as vaccine passports or proof of negative COVID tests. Nor do we have the means to regulate a crowd through enforced social distancing or mask wearing.

We fully understand that residents may be disappointed by this decision and regret the upset caused. We would like to make it clear that we do not, in any way, want to stop residents going to the cenotaph on Sunday 14th November and very much hope to host a formal service next year. However, our biggest concern is, and always will be, protecting the safety and wellbeing of our community.

This decision has not been taken lightly. Llanfairfechan's Remembrance event was discussed at length at open meetings which residents were invited to attend planning and review meetings in September and October . Proposals were voted on and agreed at a council meeting on October 13th.

Our next town council meeting will be held this evening at 7pm (online). As with every Town Council meeting, all residents are very welcome and encouraged to attend. Due to Covid-19, the meetings are still held online on ZOOM and you can request a sign in from the town clerk on

Information about the A55 junction project 

Following our enquiries into the recent announcement by the Welsh Government that there are to be no new roads. From the project team's understanding of the announcement and the enquiries that have made this only refers to three projects: Deeside Corridor (Red Route) from the English/Welsh border to the A55 at Northop. Llandeilo Bypass Third Crossing of the Menai Straits

That said all schemes are under review as part of an overall strategy of shifting spending towards better maintenance rather than building new roads. It means that the team will be continuing to progress the draft Orders via a Public Local Inquiry as recently announced, a Pre Inquiry Meeting to be held on 27th July next month.

Llanfairfechan Town Council News 20th May 2021

Llanfairfechan Town Council welcomes our new Mayor Cllr Penny Andow and Consort Jo Pugh and Deputy Mayor Cllr Chris Jones and Consort Denise Jones.  We look forward to working together to support the community.  

We would also like to thank retiring Mayor Cllr Delohne Merrell and Consort Cllr Carol Gell for all their work from May 2019 to May 2021.  This extended period has been due to the Covid-19 pandemic and both Councillors have helped us to continue working to protect our community and develop services and events to help ease the lives of residents at this difficult time.  

Their final outing was to the Llanfairfechan & North Wales Croquet Club 30th birthday celebration on Sunday 16th May.  The poor weather did not spoil the event and it was nice to be able to meet with a group after such a long period of restrictions.

Llanfairfechan Town Council News 7th May 2021

For those who were unable to attend the A55 junction 14/15 project webinar on Wednesday you can view the questions asked and responses in the at this link.  There are also available from Welsh Government at: and the event video is now available to watch.  

Please note that Llanfairfechan Town Council have submitted a formal statement to Welsh Government as follows: 

Llanfairfechan Town Council have been gathering resident comments and liaising with the A55 project team since the draft Orders have been announced. 

Whilst we are aware the team have done their best to address resident concerns, the Council would like to raise our objections about the following issues that remain:   

1. Public transport links at Pen Dalar – this matter has not been resolved in a satisfactory manner.  We are aware the project team are still in negotiation with providers, but this matter would need to be resolved or the lack of a public transport link would pose a significant barrier to residents at that end of the village and effectively split the village in two.  Data on Understanding Welsh Places states that 34% of our residents are economically inactive and we can extrapolate that this will include health issues.  Our local knowledge tells us that a significant percentage of residents at Pen Dalar fall into this category so access is an extremely important factor. 

2.  A number of residents at Pen Dalar and Penmaenmawr Road have concerns about walls and enclosed areas as a result of the new road scheme.  Many gardens are being affected and there is a concern that properties will be overshadowed, particularly where basement properties are being considered.  Town Council would like to be reassured that any of these new structures, if they are to go ahead, are built in a sympathetic manner to reduce any negative effects. 

3.  Pant y Rhedyn school field and problems with parking.  The school and the education dept have said that they have only just been made aware they will be losing the use of their green spaces at Ysgol Pant y Rhedyn – this includes playing fields and the school garden project. The situation will be considerably difficult for the school, especially at a time when pupils are still having to social distance and we cannot predict how long this will be in place. The proposed plan to move the school site will not take place in time for the proposed junction scheme, so it is estimated the school could be without green space for several years and this is of great concern to town councillors.  We seek clarity on exactly how the green space will be affected and for how long it will be unusable by the school.

4. There is a lot of concern over access to and from the village during the roadwork period.  As a dependent economy with over 80% of employed people travelling out of the village for work, these seem to be a justifiable worry.  In addition, residents have pointed out that Aber Road is currently flooding on a regular basis and, whilst the road project would significantly improve junction 14, flooding at this point could still block access for the village.

In addition to these specific objections, Town Council has discussed the fact that, whilst the active travel route would be a very welcome addition, the carbon footprint of the road scheme work is a real concern. Councillors have raised the query, post-Brexit and post- pandemic, about whether this scheme be justified against the backdrop of the climate change threat?  To be continuing with a road project at this time could be seen as contrary to both Llwybr Newydd - The Wales Transport Strategy 2021 and Conwy County Borough Council’s declaration of Climate Emergency. 

We must stress that   we believe the Covid-19 pandemic has had an effect on our abilities properly consult with residents, in particular, those who are not online and who are still shielding at home against the virus.  We hope that the statutory process will take account of the extraordinary times in which we find ourselves.

Town Council are aware of significant resident concern about the disruption caused by work on the Station  Road railway bridge.  CCBC have been to view the site and agree that the road  below needs to be widened during the road work period - Network Rail have been contacted about this matter. In addition, CCBC have made special arrangements for refuse and rubbish pick up whilst these essential works on the railway line are in place.  In the meantime, we urge pedestrians please take extra care in the area as the footpaths are narrow and visibility on the roadway is poor.

Llanfairfechan Town Council News Wednesday 4th February 2021

CCBC Head of Neighbourhood Services was present at the Llanfairfechan Town Council meeting Wednesday 3rd February to report on work at the promenade car park

Contractors have been approached to conduct remedial repairs on the car park, but they have refused to take on the work due to the level of damage.  A recent CCBC site visit to the car park resulted in recognition by CCBC that remedial works cannot now be considered, and a full-scale reconstruction must be the option. A survey has been ordered and it is planned that work will take place as a matter of urgency.  A decision will be taken with regards to a revenue stream to pay for these large-scale works and this may include Pay and Display machines.  It was noted that the promenade car park is now the only free access coastal parking in the county. 

CCBC is aware of the impact for residents.  Town Council are in discussion about paying for resident permits and all properties around the car park will be protected with resident only parking areas. Town Council have also requested that changes are made to pedestrian access to ensure wheelchairs and pushchairs have a safe route from roadside and that electric charging points are fitted.  It is hoped that external funding may be accessed to completed this part of the work. 

The car park is currently closed due to Covid-19 and on reopening it may be that some areas will have to remain closed due to damage until work is completed. 

The matter will be further dicussed once the scheme of work is presented and CCBC will attend the Town Council meeting as soon as this is available.

Llanfairfechan Town Council have been working towards a solution for the Promenade Car Park for some time:

  • 2014/15 resident survey did not agree to Town Council taking on the car park
  • CCBC continued to work on installing Pay & Display on other car parks in the county.  The Llanfairfechan Promenade Car park is the only one along the coast in county that is not pay and display
  • 2020 CCBC informed that Pay and Display would enable CCBC to upgrade the car park straight away and resident parking in the immediate area would be protected.
  • Town Council do not believe the car park should be changed to pay and display at this time as we have several potential options for external funding on the horizon through community payback on Local Development Plan proposals and A55 Junction work.   
  • February CCBC have agreed to interim remedial work on the car park to make is fit for purpose until a longer-term solution is brokered.  This work has been held up due to Covid-19.
  • 2021 Town Council resident survey is planned and further negotiations with CCBC will be taking place on the basis of resident response. 

We will be posting our survery up very soon so please respond to our survey once it is open so that we can gather an accurate majority view for a way forward

BCUHB writes in its COVID-19 Briefing – 12/11/2020:

An amazing nurse and role model has been given a special award for her tireless work to improve the specialist care provided to people with learning disabilities.  Stephanie Moores, a Deputy Ward Sister on the Foelas Learning Disability Ward at Bryn y Neuadd Hospital, Llanfairfechan, has become the latest winner of our Seren Betsi Award.

Established in 2016, the award honours the hard work and dedication of North Wales NHS staff and volunteers.  Foelas Ward provides specialist care to up to eight adults with learning disabilities and complex health needs and the team has continued to provide specialist person-centred care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is the latest success for the Foelas Ward team, who have already been awarded the Quality Network for Learning Disabilities accreditation from the Royal College of Psychiatrists.  Last year, the team beat competition from hundreds of nominations from across the UK to be shortlisted for the Nursing Times’ prestigious Learning Disabilities Nursing Award.

NHS Covid-19 App

The NHS COVID-19 app is an important part of our Test, Trace, Protect programme to control the spread of Covid-19.  The more people who use the app the greater our chances of reducing the spread of the virus.

 The app will:

  •  let you know if you have been near someone who now has coronavirus symptoms
  • give you advice on coronavirus that is relevant to you
  • allow you to check your symptoms
  • take you to a website where you can book a test if you have symptoms
  • provide a self-isolation countdown timer if required

 What will the app do for individuals?

The app is the fastest way for users to see if they are at risk from coronavirus. It will enable users (with a compatible smart phone) to check symptoms, order tests and receive results and advice. It will also provide alerts to self-isolate if a user has been in close contact with a confirmed case and will have an ‘alert’ system which will show users the current risk level in their area. The app will be available for people to download from 24 September.

Please help us to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in our community by downloading the app and using the information it provides.

Message from Conwy County Borough Council
Due to the increase in confirmed Covid-19 cases in schools all learners are now required to wear face coverings on school transport (some exemptions apply).

• It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to provide face coverings
• Three layer face coverings are recommended

Please ensure these rules are followed


Llanfairfechan Town Council News 25th September 2020

Llanfairfechan Town Council are working in partnership with public services and local organisations to protect our local community.  We have received the following advice to provide  clarity on the latest restrictions concerning licenced premises.  Please help your local licensees with this - it is a difficult time for all businesses and customers have a responsibility to follow the guidelines to ensure that business owners are not penalised. 

  • In premises licensed for the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises, food or drink may only be served to customers who are seated (subject to certain exemptions for buffets, workplace canteens and premises in educational establishments such as university canteens), and customers must be seated when consuming the food or drink;
  • premises licensed for the sale of alcohol (whether for consumption on the premises or off the premises) may not serve or supply alcohol after 10.00 p.m. (and may not serve or supply alcohol again before 6.00 a.m. the following morning);
  • provide that premises licensed for the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises must close at or before 10.20 p.m. (and may not re-open before 6.00 a.m. the following morning);
  • it is now a requirement to wear a face covering in premises where food or drink is sold, but it will be a reasonable excuse for customers not to wear a face covering whilst seated.

Please remember Welsh Government have stated:

  • Indoors, you are only able to eat or drink with the people you live with (members of your own household) or members of your extended household if you have agreed to form one. Even within your extended household, you can only eat or drink out as part of a group of up to 6 people (not including any children aged under 11

This new guidance is based on the fact that Infection rates in Wales are now very low and so the chances of catching coronavirus (COVID-19) are much lower, which is why the Chief Medical Officer has changed his advice.

Llanfairfechan Environmental Roads and Facilities update

Street cleaning

Our Environmental Operative restarted his street cleaning rounds on Monday 6th July.  For social distancing, he is starting work at 5am to allow him to do the work without affecting safety on the sreets.  Please help us by remaining vigilant about rubbish and dog waste - all CCBC bins are now open and can be used for general and dog waste. Our thanks go to the many volunteers who litter picked during lockdown - this was a great help.

Town plant tubs and flower beds

Town Councillors have been hard at work clearing and planting these areas over the last few weeks.  A big thank you must be given to residents who have been coming along to help or have donated plants for this process. The Town Council agreed that we would take on the gardening this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic as CCBC were unable to do it due to lockdown. As partners of Incredible Edible Llanfairfechan, we are trying to incorporate edible beds where possible with herbs and veg that can be picked by residents.  Town Council have bought a small amount of extra plants to help with the gardening project and we hope that we can keep on top of the weed growth through the summer!

Boating pond

The boating pond has been a difficult area to clean this year and we thank residents who turned out to clear algae from the pond. This week end, there has been a further problem with flooding in the area which has been reported and is being attended to by CCBC. We will keep you updated on progress.

Community skips  

CCBC are trying to work through a safe process so that skips can return to communites in Conwy.  However, there is no date for the return as yet and we will keep you posted.  We know there will be no skips in July and so this will mean our next one would be due in September.  We hope the situation will be resolved by then but, in the meantime, residents can book on the CCBC recycle centre scheme: CCBC website  Apologies for the inconvenience. 

Public Rights of Way

Our first cut of the year has been completed and all areas seem to be doing well.  For information, our responsibility is laid out in this list from CCBC: PROW TC Paths.  All other paths are the resonsibility of private landnowners or CCBC.  If you have any queries about our PROW routes, please do contact the Clerk on 01248 681697 or email

Public phone boxes

Through our partnership with CCBC, Town Council recently responded to a push from BT to remove public phone boxes at Pendalar and on the Promenade.  We strongly objected and stated that these were very much needed for emergencies and to help anyone who does not have a mobile phone.  We are pleased to announce that our comments have been taken on board and that our phone boxes will remain. 

On a sad note, the phone on The Promenade was recently vandelised but has now been mended by BT after a report from a Town Councillor.  We ask that residents remain vigilant in reporting any phone damage as it may save a life one day.  Its important our phone boxes are in operation. 

Public toilets

Please note that CCBC are undetaking a risk assessment and developing a safe process to reopen public toilets.  As you will be aware, this is a very difficult issue as toilets are potentially high risk in times of pandemic.  We will keep you posted on any news but we ask that you bear with us at this difficult time. 

Parking restrictions Station Road and Village Road

Due to Covid-19 lockdown, the parking signs have not been changed in Station Road and Village Road.  However, the legal process has been completed and the new waiting time in these areas is 2 hours.  Town Council have asked that these signs are changed as soon as possible now that lockdown regulations are reducing.

Information about Public Rights of Way (PROW routes) in Llanfairfechan

We have taken advice from Conwy Council and have used Welsh Government guidance to inform our decisions with regards to PROW.

The lockdown has caused significant difficulties as, although we have engaged a contractor to complete the first cut of the season, we have been unable to complete this due to the clear direction that only essential work be completed at this time.  We ask that residents bear with us. We can assure you that as soon as is practicable, our contractor will start work on PROW routes.

There has also been some concern about PROW that neighbours or cuts through private land.  We ask that residents are sensitive to the concerns of private owners at this time.  It must make for a feeling of vulnerability when strangers walk close to your home during lockdown. 

The guidance clearly states that, by law,  PROW routes must be kept open.  However, if a landowner has put up a polite sign asking that social distancing is followed, please follow this for the time being.  These families may be vulnerable to the virus or may be isolating due to symptoms.

Aggressive behaviour or abusive should not be tolerated by anyone and this should be reported to PCSO Sara on 07971 825902 or on the 101 North Wales Police line

We are all in this together and the primary focus must be to do everything to eradicate the Covid-19 from our community.

Llanfairfechan Town Council Covid -19 Statement 15th May2020

Regretfully, we must report that three Town Councillors have resigned from Llanfairfechan Town Council.  We would like to thank the Councillors for their long service to the Llanfairfechan community and look forward to continuing to work together with them in their voluntary roles within other village activities. We are committed to moving forward as a Town Council, working together to protect our community from Covid-19 and look after the future wellbeing of residents.   

We have been advised by CCBC Member Services as follows:

The Local Government (Coronavirus) (Postponement of Elections) (Wales) Regulations 2020

Town Councils are still required to advertise this vacancy “as soon as practicable”.  This is not defined in legislation and given the current circumstances and issues around public safety, it is not practicable to publish at present.  It should be noted that if a by-election is called these regulations postpone any by-elections until after the 1 February 2021.

As a result of this, the Town Council, using the current legislation, will consider the proposal that the notice of election will be issued when the Welsh Government Covid Regulations  are lifted and the Town Council office is back in full operation.  Our Council will be meeting online on Wednesday and will consider this proposal. 

If you would like to attend the meeting or have any queries or comments, these should be directed to the Town Clerk by email on

Please do not put police into the difficult position of having to issue a fine.
The legislation is designed to ensure that Wales continues to control the spread of Covid-19 virus. 
The better we, as individuals, follow the rules, the more chance we have of lifting the lockdown procedures in a shorter term.

We are very much aware that neither Conwy Council Borough Council officers nor Llanfairfechan Town Council wanted to remove the sign, but we are all committed to ensuring that highway regulations are followed as directed by Law.

Local businesses, Town Council, Ysgol Babanod and Ysgol Pant y Rhedyn rallied around and an alternative site was quickly found for the banners so that safety rules would not be breached.  This is a great example of the community working together to achieve a positive outcome and we will all be on our doorsteps cheering for our NHS heroes as usual each Thursday at 8pm

We would urge anyone who has any queries about the virus to visit the Public Health Wales website at for the latest advice.

Llanfairfechan Town Council Covid -19 Statement 19th March 2020

Due to the government guidelines on social distancing, we have agreed to use an email thread to agree items that cannot be postponed until we have public online meeting facilities organised. Information from the Society of Local Council Clerks tells us there is pressure on the UK Government to give us legal guidance on how to operate within the Local Government Act during the pandemic status period.  We hope this process will be made clear by our next meeting on Wednesday 1st April. In the interim, we are also investigating conference call options that could include involvement of members of the public.  It was agreed that all items from the 18th March agenda would be held over to the Wednesday 1st April  FULL TOWN COUNCIL meeting where possible.  Item 7 and Item 16 were too urgent to postpone so Councillors were asked to decide by email as follows:


It was agreed this matter needed resolving quickly to ensure a clear and supportive response during the Covid – 19 Delay Stage as per UK Government criteria.  It was proposed that Llanfairfechan Town Council should adopt the Pandemic Contingency Plan Policy that had been drawn up by the Clerk using SLCC guidelines.  From that, a Pandemic Crisis Management Team would be set up.  It was agreed that it should include the following members:

  • Mayor 2020/2021 Cllr Delohne Merrell
  • Deputy Mayor 2019/2020 Cllr Penny Andow (due to become Mayor in 2020/2021)
  • Cllr Chris Jones (proposed for Deputy Mayor 2020/21)
  • Town Clerk – Jayne Neal

Please note that Councillors will be kept informed and all decisions made by the team will be ratified by the Town Council either by email or meetings as the situation allows. This group will present an action plan to the Full Town Council on Wednesday 1st April and, in the interim, will update members of the public and the Town Council on developments due to the Covid – 19 crisis.  The Pandemic Contingency Plan Policy, Pandemic Communication Strategy and a Covid 19 Staff Protocol documents had been distributed by email prior to the meeting and the documents were accepted in their current form.  


All agreed that it would be in order to make the payments as detailed in the agenda

The Clerk's office is currently closed so please email queries to or contact your local Town Councillor directly here if you would prefer. 


Llanfairfechan Town Council Covid -19 Statement 17th March 2020

The following information has been issued by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board:

Covid - 19 Cymraeg

Covid - 19 English

Latest news from BCUHB

Currently, we are planning to meet as a Town Council on Wednesday 18th March but we await further advice to confirm this decision. 

Llanfairfechan Community Hall is open and operating strict health protection procedures. 

As per offical guidance, we ask that anyone with a cough or a temperature above 37. 8 does not enter the centre and self isolates to protect vulnerable residents in Llanfairfechan



Meeting of the Full Town Council 4th March 2020
1. Councillors agreed to fund a Welsh Ambulance approved defibrillator to replace the broken unit at Pen Dalar hall. It was agreed that this was an important piece of equipment and that it is crucial that it is available in that location
2. After several months of information gathering, it was agreed that Town Council will fund a CCTV camera at the promenade car park. This will protect the Toilets, car park and monitor conditions at the jetty gates to assist with the new protocol. This will be a partnership project with CCBC and the camera will be linked to the central monitoring system.
3. A tender decision has been made for the joint project Penmaenmawr TC and Llanfairfechan TC PROW maintenance. It was agreed the contract would go to EPC Forestry for the period of 12 months
4. Town Council have taken the lead in progressing a project to install water into CCBC Erw Feiriol cemetery. The application is going ahead, and we hope for installation soon
5. CCBC officers attended a Town Council information meeting about the Promenade car park and have confirmed that emergency repairs will be made there as soon as possible. In addition to this, TC and CCBC are working together to source funding for redevelopment of the site, as it has been recognised that the area lacks proper pedestrian access and amenities. A partnership group will be formed to investigate options and take the project forward. It was noted the CCBC project to change car parks into pay and display has been running in Conwy since 2015 and Llanfairfechan is the last area to be considered. Town Council strongly felt that this is not an option to be considered until the car park is of the appropriate standard.

Full minutes of this meeting will be available after ratification at the General Purposes Meeting 18th March 2020

Promenade Car Park Update

Llanfairfechan Town Council and CCBC are aware of the need to refurbish and redesign the the layout of the Promenade car park. The car park currently belongs to CCBC but we are working in partnership to broker a good solution and are preparing a joint funding bid which will look at all options. There will be an opportunity for residents to give their opinion and suggestions before any changes take place.  The Town Council will be discussing the matter at our meeting on Wednesday 4th March and residents are welcome to send in comments or attend the meeting.

The works traffic and fenced areas on the car park are for flood risk construction work on the Coastal Pathway and to support the change of streelighting to LED lampposts - please take care when using the area during this period of time.

Nant Pandy Car Park Consultation report

Background information & current status

  1. It was agreed that Town Council would consult with residents to gather opinion on Nant Pandy parking spaces and the need to keep the extra 6 spaces that had been developed when the major works were undertaken. 
  2. To progress, Town Council will need to take on ownership of the car park and protect the spaces as resident’s motor car parking only.  CCBC have said they will help us through the process, but we need evidence that residents want this to happen
  3. 100 paper questionnaires were delivered to houses and 12 were returned
  4. 48 questionnaires received online (45 English and yn Gymraeg)
    Data Analysis:
  1. Of the 60 survey responses, 36 answered yes to the question ‘Do you feel more parking spaces are needed at Nant Pandy car park area?’
  2. The following information was collected on number of cars owned by respondents:

0 cars


1 car


2 cars


3 cars


More than 3 cars


Did not answer



  1. Many respondents used the comments section and comments were as follows:

Important not to get rid of more green space as part has already gone, important to preserve wildlife area


                Get rid of the trailers, boats and caravans and have it just for cars and Vans


The parking on Mill Road needs sorting also especially by the pubs. The current situation is quite dangerous, and many people have concerns over drink driving by those who park on the road to access the pubs.

Parking should be for everyone not residents only

People have been leaving untaxed cars boats etc making parking difficult at times, so any extra spaces would be appreciated, at weekends visiting walkers often park there.

Hopefully this will free up some space for Mill Road.


We visit friends who live near Nant y Pandy & the parking is always a challenge. It must be tea difficult if you’re a resident so more space would make sense. Many of the houses here are pre- two car properties hence the lack of parking space.

My daughter -in-law always uses the car park as they are, of necessity, a two-car family. The extra parking would be very welcome.

No caravans, mobile homes, boats (1 there with hazardous tow hitch at present) no large commercial vehicle. Defined spaces.


                It may be helpful to define parking bays in some way, although appreciate this would significantly increase cost

Safety, stop parking on pavements. Safety for residents



Although I live in the bottom village, I frequently visit friends in Valley Road and find great difficulty in parking. This creates a problem for me as my husband has a chronic illness and finds it hard to walk from the Promenade to the Valley Road

                Need to alleviate parking problem on valley road, especially as it is so narrow in parts.

Additional spaces on the car park would hopefully result in fewer cars parked outside houses on Valley road.

Green space needs to be kept as it is there have been vehicles left there for years - if they’re moved there’d be more space

The road just below the Pandy car park is very narrow and becomes dangerous when cars/vans are forced onto the pavement in order to pass parked cars.

                Having seen the parking problems in the Nant Pandy area, I believe the extra spaces would help to alleviate the situation. Many residents in that area have no parking provision at all. I used to live in Nant y Felin broadband I saw first-hand the difficulties faced by the residents local to that specific area.


It is really helpful to have organised parking space to keep the narrow roads clearer. We have mobility impaired relatives that visit, and we like to be able to park our cars at NantyPandy car park when they visit, so that our visitors can use the road parking closer to our house.

Visit friends up there it's a nightmare

Maybe more information on nant y coed, previous uses, wildlife that lives there for kids.

I live off valley Road and extra car spaces for Pandy residents will make driving safer as there will be less congestion on valley road make if safer

The whole area is much improved. More parking to needed to stop drivers parking on the pavements coursing walkers with prams having to walk in the road.

No good enough access at present time for any emergency vehicles

                It is very unhelpful that people use the carpark as permanent storage for broken down vehicles, boats, trailers etc.


                I rarely take my car up Valley Road as I find it very difficult to park and am always worried I will have to drive on the pavement to get up the road.

An extension on the car park is much needed.


                The number of cars per household has obviously come up over the years, and this combined with the size of cars getting larger compared to the sizes say 30 odd years ago, results in nowhere for residents to park their vehicles, and the added size often means that effectively valley road is turned in to one way road. Very often I see large vehicles having to mount the pavement to pass parked cars. Added car parking spaces would certainly help. The only further way to help would be to encourage residents with a drive to use them rather than the road.

Sometimes we can't park on the road outside our house as we don't have a drive. We either have to park further up the road, or sometimes as far as the Nant Y Pandy car park & walk back down. I don't invite my disabled parents to visit often as there is so little parking available, & it makes it difficult to have friends over too. Some people on the street own several cars even though they have a drive, thus taking up valuable space & pushing people up to the car park which is often full. The car park definitely needs the extra spaces. People with boats or off-road vehicles etc need to be asked to move them. If anything it needs even more spaces please!

At the meeting of 22nd January 2020, Llanfairfechan Town Council agreed that, following the responses from residents, contact should be made with CCBC to progress the handover of the are to Llanfairfechan Town Council and that planning permission be sought for the extra spaces that have been left in place after roadworks.  We hope that these decisions will contribute to easing the pressure of the area with regards to parking. 

Any comments for consideration by Town Council can be emailed to jayne@ or posted to Llanfairfechan Community Hall Village Road Llanfairfechan Conwy LL330AB

All comments to CCBC should be directed through

Update on emergency works on Valley Road

Llanfairfechan Town Council have received the following information from CCBC:

There is to be a continuation of the emergency road closure on Valley Road, Llanfairfechan, which also extends on to Mount Road.

The reason for the road closure is to facilitate urgent works to a failed culvert that was at imminent risk of collapse.  MWT Civil Engineering will return to site on Monday 6th January 2020 and complete the required works; it is anticipated that the works will be completed no later than Tuesday 21st January 2020.

We thank you all for your patience and look forward to the completion of this important piece of work.


Update on A55 Junction Works Project

Llanfairfechan Town Council have been informed that there has been a delay to next stage of development and preparation of the draft Orders is proving a bigger task than expected. Please note that publication of draft Orders for the junction improvements is now expected in March 2020

The project team are keeping in contact with Llanfairfechan Town Council and will be updating on any progress. 




Celebrating a very special birthday

Our Mayor recently attended a special 100th birthday party for Llanfairfechan resident, Ina Davies.  Family and friends had travelled from far and wide to share in the celebrations.  Mrs Davies stated her secret to a long and youthful life had been holidays, travelling the world and dancing.  

Mayor Delohne Merrell said “It was a very real pleasure to meet Mrs Davies. “She is such an amazing person, so lively and so interesting to talk to and with an amazing family. “


2019 Grants celebration event

Llanfairfechan Jetty Gates - update

Llanfairfechan Town Council are pleased to announce that CCBC and Town Council have agreed terms to offer a solution to the problem of beach access during winter months.

Our jetty gates will now remain open unless there is forecast storm or high tide.  The floodgates at Llanfairfechan protect 73 properties (residential and business) from coastal flooding. CCBC look at a combination of factors to decide when to close the gates, including high tide heights, wind gust strength and the direction of the wind.  When there is a perceived risk to the Promenade and dwellings on the front, the gates will be closed and then reopened once the risk has reduced. Llanfairfechan Town Council have agreed to pay call out and CCBC have offered a reasonable price to allow this process to take place. 

Our thanks to Cllr Carol Gell who has worked tirelessly to ensure that this matter was addressed.  We would also like to thank the CCBC Flood Risk Managment team for helping us to meet the health and well being needs of residents and visitors to Llanfairfechan. 


Town Mayor Delohne Merrell and Llanfairfechan Town Council are very saddened to read the statement from North Wales Police detailing the tragic air incident that has occurred in the last 48 hours. Our heartfelt thoughts are with Professor David Last’s family at this distressing time.


Llanfairfechan Town Council statement on  the Conwy County Borough Council local Development Plan 

Llanfairfechan Town Council have been actively involved in all aspects of the the Conwy County Borough Council Local Development Plan (LDP) process and have challenged many aspects; working to ensure that resident opinion is being considered.

Ultimately the responsibility for LDP development lies with Conwy County Borough Council and we have been notified the figure now being discussed for any proposed Cae Ffynnon development would not go beyond 250. They have confirmed no houses can be built until the school is built and other infrastructure matters are resolved. It must also be recognised this is in early planning stages and that no decisions have been made.

There is a Housing Need Consultation due to be posted to all residents in the new year. We would urge all residents to give their views and Town Council will again have a session in the Co-op to answer any questions.

A55 Junction Improvement Project

Resident information about the upcoming Public Exhibitions on the A55 Improvement works will be distributed as from Monday 17th June - all residents will receive communication from Welsh Government and posters will be available at Llanfairfechan Community Hall and Library. 

Follow the link below to download a high quality leaflet that can be zoomed into for examination of details on the plan.

PDF Quality Poster

The Public Exhibition will be held in Llanfairfechan on Thursday 27h June 10am - 8pm at Llanfairfechan Community Hall.  Residents are urged to come along to find out about the plans and ask questions of the project team. 



Llanfairfechan Town Council have been notified of the Option D choice for the A55 junction improvement works.  Information can be found here:

We recognise this work is being undertaken by Welsh Government to improve the reliance and sustainability of the whole North Wales coast and that this work is seen as essential to future developments.  Whilst safe and efficient access for the region is vitally important, we are keen to ensure that our resident’s wellbeing is protected and request that community impact is a high priority within the decision making process. 

Housing is at a premium in Llanfairfechan and we would ask that measures are put in place to ensure that housing, in particular social housing, is not lost within the village whatever option is considered. A further concern is resident safety – it is very important that the Option D junction choice leads to village road layouts that protect residents using the schools, GP surgery, churches  and other services along Penmaenmawr Road. 

As the next stage of the project is delivered, we are keen to assist with further communication and information sessions with the project team to ensure that the best possible solutions are found.  We have already been involved in making arrangements for a further public information meeting to be held at Llanfairfechan Community Hall in June 2019


Get to know your local PCSO 

We are very pleased to announce that there are to be monthly drop in sessions with PCSO Sara and other organisations in the Lloyd Hughes Room at the Community Hall.  The first one will be on Wednesday 20th February at 10am.  If you are unable to attend, please do email any comments or concerns to the Town Clerk

Thank you to all the speakers and contributors and we do hope you will be able to join us for next year's service.  A planning meeting will take place on Friday 14th Septmber 2019 at 11am in the Council Chamber - all welcome.
