An application has been lodged with planners to build an 89-home “green” development.

The derelict brownfield site is bordered by Oxford Road and Builder Street, Llandudno, next to the town’s railway station.

Because of issues with vehicular access to the scheme it is being pitched as ideal for those who like walking and cycling.

The plans have been submitted by Lane End Design, a division of Warrington based construction company Lane End Developments.

The Design and Access statement says the proposed development would be “highly accessible by non-car modes, which would assist in promoting a choice of travel modes other than the private car”.

The development would see 33 two, three and four bedroom homes, plus 56 one and two bedroom apartments.

A pre-planning consultation was conducted by planning consultancy Grimster, based in Cheshire, prior to lodging the application with Conwy council.

The 1.3 hectare parcel of land, which has been used as an impromptu car park and currently houses a hand car wash, has also been a venue for some of the town’s homeless people.

The land originally housed railway sidings when the station was built in the 1850s.

The proposal submitted would see 11 two-bedroom, 14 three-bedroom and eight four-bedroom homes on the site.

In addition, there would be 30 two-bedroom and 26 one-bedroom apartments in the scheme.

The site is listed in a C1 (low risk) flood zone and reports by the developer state groundwater flooding will not be a problem. A small area of land will be elevated to minimise any flood fears.
