Opus North Receive Go Ahead for Tudno Castle Redevelopment

Work on the Tudno Castle Hotel is set to begin in May.

Developers received the final go ahead from the Conwy Council’s planning committee earlier this year and have been awaiting Cadw approval.

But last week Opus North’s James Farnaby told the Pioneer they had received Cadw’s approval to fully demolish the old Tudno Castle Hotel and re-develop a new one.

Mr Farnaby said: “We are very pleased to have got the green light from Cadw for the Tudo Hotel development. We’re hoping to start work in early May once certain planning conditions have been discharged.

“We’re working to ensure the works don’t interfere with local events in Llandudno.

“The new development will be a real asset for the town.”

Plans for the site will see the demolition of the remainder of the building and the recreation of the listed façade with a 63-bedroom hotel, five restaurants and a space for a retail store.

Planning permission was given back in 2014 for the project with the hope of maintaining the original facade.

It has since been found it is too much in disrepair and a new proposal has been passed by Conwy council’s planning committee to fully demolish the Tudno Castle Hotel and recreate the listed façade.
