The site is located off Plas Penrhyn, Penrhyn Bay, Llandudno.

Llandudno Town Council have recommended the plans are approved.

During consultation responses, one couple raised concerns about the access and existing highway issues.

They wrote: “As residents of Farrington Court, we know only too well the problems that already exist from traffic chaos at the location between the GP surgery entrance and the first property on the right hand side, which is next door to the field of the proposed development.”

Another objection stated: “I have concerns not only for the health and safety of local residents of Penrhyn Bay but also the local infrastructures such as schools and the doctors surgery.”

The plans will be determined by Conwy’s planning committee.
