Conwy Council Calls On Local Businesses To Help Repair Crumbling Pavements

The broken and cracked pavements on Mostyn Street in Llandudno have become such a problem that Conwy Council has issued a call to businesses in the area to help them with the £3 million repair project.

According to the North Wales Daily Post, the very first phase of the work in question will cost over £600,000 and a report from the local authority notes that plans to improve the road could be made more complicated because it only owns 60 per cent of the pavement. Private companies own the rest.

The report read: “The annual revenue budget for footway repairs across the whole county is £250,000. This funding has historically been insufficient to prevent the council’s footway assets from deteriorating significantly.”

So that the project can go ahead, the council is now looking for third party contributions so the remaining 40 per cent of the pavement can be treated as well – and it hope that local business owners will come to the rescue.

It was further noted that owners of private frontages on Mostyn Street are in fact responsible for the maintenance of paving slabs within their curtilage and they could find themselves on the wrong end of a legal battle if claims for slips, trips or falls are put in by members of the public.

If you think the pavements in your area are problematic, you can always fill out a report to let your local council know there’s an issue. Most councils are responsible for maintenance of the majority of pavements, including replacing broken or missing slabs and removing weeds.
