Conwy Castle - a World Heritage site (as designated by UNESCO); one of the finest preserved castles in Europe, visited every year by many thousands of both domestic and foreign tourists - many on coach trips. You'd have thought that every effort would be made to ensure the area surrounding the castle was kept clean and well maintained. Instead, every coach heading for the coach park in Conwy has to pass this eyesore - the derelict Billingtons garage:
It's been closed for about two years now and is currently up for sale. Is it really not possible that Conwy Council can release a few hundred thousand pounds from the £50m+ of reserves and use it to buy this property, demolish it and landscape the site? Please?
