Weʼre raising £5,000 to Fund A Judicial Review To Save Our Village Centre

Please help us to save our village centre!
We wish to raise funds for a judicial review into a planning decision made by Conwy County Borough Council, regarding the conversion of the village public house and development of a 3 storey apartment block on the same site, which has been approved, despite contravening several policies within its own Local Development Plans.

Llanddulas is a small, charming village, rich in history and located on the coast of North Wales.
This site has a historical significance, as the Fair View Inn was the drinking place of the renowned author Evelyn Waugh, when he was a teacher in Llanddulas. He often sought solace here - and it is known as “Mrs Roberts’ pub” in both his diaries and in his novel, ‘Decline and Fall.’ Fans of Mr Waugh often seek out this public house for this very reason.
The Fair View Inn is the only place in the vicinity that provided a family friendly pub/restaurant, with children’s play area and parking.
We do not have many amenities within the village and now we have nothing that caters for families. The Fair View Inn also provided much needed employment and it was truly the hub of the village.
Llanddulas has no parking in its centre now, as they intend to build a large apartment block on it. This means that patrons of the post office, convenience store and chip shop will choose to go elsewhere, as they will not be able to park.
We also rely heavily on tourism, due to having holiday parks in close proximity. These visitors will be less likely to visit this wonderful place, if there is nothing to accommodate their families.
Conwy County Borough Council have approved this development, despite it contravening several of its own policies and standards. We believe we have a very good case for judicial review and we are asking for your help to fund it.
Please help us save the heart of our village! Your support really would mean the world to us!
Thank you for anything at all that you can spare for our cause!
Any remaining funds not used at the end of our campaign, will be donated to the Llanddulas and Rhyd y Foel Community Council, for use on community facilities.

We are a passionate group of local residents, who adore our lovely village and are devastated that the local council have seen fit to tear the heart from it, by approving this development.
