The bid for a Conwy landmark could be nearing its conclusion.

Conwy County Borough Council’s (CCBC) cabinet will review bids for the Civic Hall site which were received during a tender process last year.

While CCBC’s finance and resources overview and scrutiny committee heard a report from the county valuer and asset manager on the Civic Hall last week cabinet are not set to review the bids until its next meeting on May 8.

The tender process closed last autumn and while a number of interested parties, including the Conwy Feast, have come forward since, formal bids can not be made unless the tender process is formally re-opened.

Cabinet will not be able to formally open the tender process again until at least May after they have made a final decision on the first lot of bids.

But if cabinet are satisfied with a bid presented to them on May 8 groups like the Conwy Feast may have missed their opportunity to put in a bid.

Cabinet member for economic development, Louise Emery, said the Civic Hall was an important building to Conwy and detailed discussion would be held at the next meeting to make sure the correct decision for the building was made.

Cllr Emery said: “It is clear that the Civic has been an important building for the Community in its past and I am conscious that its future use needs to bear this in mind.

"This will be discussed in detail at Cabinet on 8th May."

The Grade II listed building, in the heart of Conwy, has been on the open market since April last year after no bids were received following a competitive tendering process which ran between July 14, 2015 and January 16, 2017.

Wetherspoons is one group linked with the Civic Hall site.

However to date, the Civic Hall still remains, housing the Conwy library - which was last year the only library in Wales to pass every standard test set by the Welsh Government.
