The shelters on Llandudno’s seafront promenade are set to be restored to their former glory – to their original Victorian design. There are seven shelters spanning the length of Llandudno’s promenade, each of which have been confirmed to benefit from renovation.
There have been a number of people express a concern over the current state of the shelters, which are used frequently by those wanting shelter from the sun, wind or rain all year round. The current shelters may either be demolished and replaced with Victorian era replicas, or completely renovated.
Current shelters on Llandudno’s North Shore were 1960s replacements for the original structures which dated from the late 19th century. Conwy County Council officers are recommending they should be replaced for the original structures. The town council, along with Mostyn Estates are working together to raise around £50,000 to get things moving per shelter.
Mayor Gary Burchett said: “Getting rid of those concrete monstrosity and replacing them with replicas of the Victorian originals will make the North Parade in Llandudno a whole lot more attractive”.
Plans found from 1899 will be used as a template for the designs, meaning that they will eventually look very authentic. Funds towards the costs are being pledged, and are also still being looked for by those involved.
The renovation would be welcomed with wide arms by the locals and frequent visitors of Llandudno, that will improve the already beautiful North Parade, Promenade and North Shore beach front.
