Penmaenmawr Promenade Redevelopment Survey

What is this about?
Penmaenmawr Town Council is in the process of developing a 'vision' for the future of Penmaenmawr Promenade. To do this, we need to find out how people use the promenade, what would encourage people to use it more often, and what ideas people have to improve it for residents and visitors of all ages.

What will you do with the information we provide?
The information you provide will be used to put together a plan, showing how the promenade could be improved, based on everyone's ideas and input from design engineers. The plan will be used to apply for funding from various sources, to top-up the funds that have already been raised through the Precept, and try to make that vision for the promenade a reality.

Why do you need my ideas?
This consultation questionnaire is an important part of the process. Funders will want to see that Penmaenmawr Town Council has sought the views of the community and developed the plans that reflect the feedback we have gained from community members. The questionnaire will take approximately five minutes to complete.

Through a health professional or social services – if you are currently being seen by a health professional [such as a district nurse or health visitor] or the social services then please ask them if they would support your registration and then complete the registration forms that can be found on our website at

3. Through a family member or friend [with the patients knowledge and consent] – to do this, you can have your family member or friend complete the registration and submit it to the health centre on your behalf;

It was recognised that the closure of the surgery would cause particular impact to certain patients who may be genuinely hindered in their ability to travel to the Health Centre in Llanfairfechan. To reduce this impact the GP Partners are launching a Voluntary Transport Scheme. The scheme, although a not-for-profit scheme will carry a small charge for patients who elect to use it and are accepted to the scheme. This funding will help to maintain and develop the scheme.

So what exactly is the Plas Menai Voluntary Transport Scheme It is the intention of the Plas Menai Health Centre to develop a transport scheme that will help those patients who genuinely find difficulty in being able to attend the Health Centre located in Llanfairfechan. The scheme is managed by the health centre but is run by a band of appropriately checked, willing volunteer drivers – without them the scheme would not have taken off!

How does the scheme work?
Patients who wish to be considered for the scheme need to register specifically to the scheme. This can be done in a number of ways:

  • You can register through your GP – next time you meet with them and wish to be considered for the scheme please ask for a registration form;
  • Through a health professional or social services – if you are currently being seen by a health professional [such as a district nurse or health visitor] or the social services then please ask them if they would support your registration and then complete the registration forms that can be found on our website at
  • Through a family member or friend [with the patients knowledge and consent] – to do this, you can have your family member or friend complete the registration and submit it to the health centre on your behalf;
  • Personally – you can complete the registration form yourself and submit it to the health centre.

What happens then?
Once we receive a Voluntary Transport Scheme Registration Request we will assess the reasons why you are making the request. If we feel the reasons fall within the aims of the scheme then we will contact you and place you onto the register. If we feel your reasons fall outside of what the health centre [GP Partners] believe to be appropriate for the scheme then we will contact you to inform you of the decision. You can appeal the decision and details of how you can appeal will be available on our website at

So when does the Voluntary Transport Scheme start?
The scheme is planned to start on Monday, 9 July 2018. We intend to have designated clinics for those patients who are registered to use the scheme. These will be held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Penmaenmawr Skip – please be aware that there will be NO skips during the month of June at the Paradise Road car park in Penmaenmawr. The provision of a free community skip will recommence in July. Please DO NOT leave your rubbish in the car park as this is fly tipping and you could be prosecuted and the Town Council will reconsider the provision of the free community skip as it is very expensive to clear fly tipped rubbish. Dates of future skips will be published in due course. The skip in Dwygyfylchi will continue as usual.

Paddling Pool mural – The Town Council hope the addition of a colourful mural around the paddling pool on the promenade is welcomed by residents.

A systematic programme of improvements is being progressed by the Town Council’s Project Sparkle which includes a new colour scheme, new signage and improved street furniture.

Conwy Supported Lodgings and Nightstop

We need your help! Do you have a spare room? Can you offer support?

Supported Lodgings
Conwy supported lodgings have been commissioned by Conwy council to provide support for young people aged 16-21 from the county of Conwy, who through no fault of their own find themselves homeless and in need of support and accommodation.

If you have a spare room and can provide a room for a homeless young person. Plus, have an interest in teaching the young person to cook, clean, budget and provide emotional support to prepare them for independence; then we would really like to hear from you!

The scheme accredited by Depaul uk, covers the region of Conwy and commenced in Nov 2016.

Nightstop provides a safety net to vulnerable young people aged 16-21 at a difficult time in their lives, usually after a family breakdown and are forced to leave home.

Last year, the network of Nightstops in the UK helped over 5000 vulnerable young people and kept them from sleeping rough or staying in unsuitable accommodation, which put them at possible risk of abuse.

The use of spare rooms makes a huge positive difference to young people in crisis. The Nightstop scheme sees volunteer hosts provide a room, evening meal and a sympathetic ear to a young homeless person for one night or up to 3 weeks. Once engaged, Nightstop staff can then work with the young person and in partnership with other local agencies helping them address the issues that caused them to become homeless.

All householders are provided with a financial incentive to cover all costs of the young person and receive full training and ongoing support.

For further details or an informal chat about our service please call: 01492 576986 or 01352 700838
