CONWY County Borough Council are to welcome two businesses to Colwyn Bay Pier this summer.

Seasonal licences have been awarded to Cymru Ices, a Conwy-based dessert shop who operate at a number of different events, and The Peacock Lounge, a restaurant and cocktail bar in Rhos-on-Sea.

Earlier this year, the Council invited applications from local or independent businesses to offer food, drinks or retail at the newly constructed pier in Colwyn Bay.

The Pier Project Board reviewed the applications, and last month (April) licences were awarded to the two companies.

Cymru Ices will also sell fish and chips, perfect for a coastal getaway this summer.

Councillor Charlie McCoubrey, Leader of Conwy County Borough Council, said: “We were looking for seasonal concessions to complement the character of this beautifully designed structure and, alongside the existing businesses on the waterfront, enhance the visitor experience.

“I’m pleased to welcome Cymru Ices and Peacock Lounge to Colwyn Bay pier, and wish them a very busy and successful summer.”
