Llandudno Pier landing stage rebuilt for cruise ships' return
Over £330,000 is being spent to build a new landing stage at the end of Llandudno Pier to allow cruise ships to return to the Conwy resort.
The news has been welcomed by local businesses who say it will bring more tourists to the town.
A landing stage was first built in 1891 to provide berthing facilities for vessels before it was closed in 2006. They offered services to the Isle of Man and trips to Puffin Island and Anglesey. It was replaced with a concrete platform in 1969, but became defunct when the frame fell into disrepair and became unsafe.
A grant of £200,000 is being made by Gwynt y Môr Tourism Fund by owners of the off-shore wind farm. Other cash has come from Conwy council, Llandudno Town Council and pier owners, Six Piers Limited.
Work is set to start on the Dolphin Landing Stage in July and could be completed by October.
