A proposal to demolish the derelict Llandudno Youth Centre and create a three storey building consisting 18 two bed apartments has been recommended for refusal.

Conwy County Borough Council Planning Committee will meet today to discuss the application, put forward by Mostyn Estates Ltd for the Trinity Avenue site.

The design and access statement reads: "The site was acquired by Mostyn Estates from Conwy Council to redevelop the derelict youth centre site, which closed five years ago.

"Location is highly accessible to the town centre, public transport, employment, schools and other community facilities.

"There is separation from the edge of the conservation area, which reflects an interruption and change in character.

The site does not affect or lie close to any identified important, direct or panoramic views of the conservation area. The residential development on previously developed land will ease the existing housing land shortfall.

"The housing mix reflects the current local demand. Viability assessment indicates that the development is not viable for affordable housing contributions.

"The design concept is commercially modern with traditional Victorian styling."

Objections to the development have been raised.

Llandudno Town Council have recommended rejection on the grounds that "the flood risk assessment does not comply technical note and provide suitable protection for residents."
