PAY and display machines could be introduced along the parade from Craig y Don and towards the RNLI Lifeboat Station in Llandudno.

The machines are being proposed along with other suggested strategies as Conwy County Borough Council find ways to cope with a £11m funding shortfall.

Other ‘additional income’ proposals include reviewing parking charges to encourage car share, active travel and public transport use; the use of part of Mostyn Broadway Coach Park for pay and display car parking and introducing street parking charges on Gloddaeth Street / Avenue, Llandudno.

Cllr Frank Bradfield, of Craig-y-Don ward, said: “It has the potential to affect families, residents visitors and parking by the lifeboat station, those that use the paddling pool and hoteliers. It affects Llandudno town.

“Craig-y-Don is gridlocked so this will affect the residential centre which is enterprising. We have no empty shops.

“It is a Conwy Borough County Council proposal, coupled with the council tax increased and the garden waste.

“There are an awful lot of questions to be asked.

“There is no car park that exists in Craig y Don.”

Danielle Rush, spokesperson for the RNLI in Wales, said: “We haven’t been able to assess the impact of the plans on us yet. We are in constant dialogue with the council and will raise queries should they arise.”

A spokesperson from Conwy County Borough Council said that as part of the budget process, all Council Services are expected to show how they will deal with the £11m funding shortfall.

They added: “Services’ proposals are included in the reports presented to councillors. Extending the parking zone along the parade from Craig y Don towards the RNLI Lifeboat station has been proposed for 2020/2021, which would standardise the parking along the seafront.

“The Budget for 2020/21 will be discussed in detail at the following meetings: Cabinet January 28; Scrutiny Committee on February 20 and Cabinet on February 25.

“Conwy’s final settlement is expected to be announced by Welsh Government on February 25.

“The Council will meet on March 5 to finalise and agree the budget for 2020/21.”
