WORK has started preparing land at Penmaen Road, Conwy on the construction of new commercial units.

Infrastructure work across the site and building four initial units is expected to take around 32 weeks. Site preparation and earthwork will take place before Christmas, with the major construction phase taking place in the New Year, and work is scheduled to be completed by late summer 2020.

Jennings Building and Civil Engineering Ltd has been appointed to construct this business space.

Cllr Goronwy Edwards, cabinet member for economic development, Conwy County Borough Council, said: “Penmaen Road is within an identified employment growth are, there’s significant demand in the energy and environment, food, construction and creative sectors in the area, so we’ll be focusing on these uses, and looking to complement the businesses based at the neighbouring Parc Caer Seion site.”
