Pier Pavilion emerges from the undergrowth....

Regular Llandudno watchers will be well aware of the long running (since 1994!) saga of the site of the former Pier Pavilion Theatre on Happy Valley Road. The full story is covered in a previous article I wrote for the blog here but, to summarise, since it was destroyed by fire in 1994, this very prominent site has remained derelict and overgrown - not to mention a favourite topic of conversation for visitors walking past the site.

Rumours abound as to why this valuable site was never redeveloped - the most common one is that the owner wishes to have a residential development and Conwy Council would never permit it.

The relevance to today's blog post is that I was enjoying a walk around Llandudno this afternoon and noticed that the site had been cleared of the years of undergrowth:

Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to clear the site - the question is who? Conwy Council? The Owner? Is something happening with the site? If you know tell.
