A PRE-application consultation event will be held regarding the future of the former library and civic hall in Conwy.

Nautical Point Limited is intending to apply for full planning permission for the redevelopment of the site, to convert it into an artisan food hall, restaurant and bar area, and a 15-room “aparthotel”.

The event will be held at the former library and civic hall on High Street on May 23, between 4-7pm.

It will provide residents with the opportunity to comment directly to the developer prior to the submission of a planning application to Conwy County Borough Council.

The Grade II listed building lies within a World Heritage Site.

A spokesperson for Nautical Point previously said: “Nautical Point has been working closely with CADW to find a sympathetic scheme for this sensitive Grade II listed site that would be suitable given the historic setting of the building in the centre of Conwy.

“The mixed-use scheme will help to deliver both economic and tourism benefits to the region both in terms of job creation during and post construction.”

Previously, pub chain JD Wetherspoon had promised to invest £3million in the site, creating 50 jobs in the town in 2018.

But Conwy County Borough Council’s cabinet rejected that offer, which was the only bid on the table for the site at the time.
