Council urged to scrap boatyard sell off

Darren Millar, Welsh Conservative Assembly Member for Clwyd West, has criticised plans for the sale of a boatyard in his constituency.

Conwy County Borough Council’s Asset Management Group is to consider a proposal next week to sell off around half of the yard in Rhos-on-Sea, which is currently the home of the Bay of Colwyn Sailing Club.
 
Darren Millar AM said, ‘The council must scrap these ludicrous plans.
 
‘I am appalled that the local authority has not even bothered to consult local councillors on these proposals nor have they spoken to the club, which has been active on the site for some 50 years.
 
‘These plans fly in the face of the councils leisure and tourism strategies which suggest that marine leisure opportunities should be encouraged in the Colwyn Bay area.
 
‘I am determined to work with the club to see these plans dropped.’
