Llandudno promenade is the jewel in the crown of the
seaside resort of Llandudno. The wide promenade, lovingly protected by
Llandudno Town Council for generations, stretches from the Victorian
Pier at the Great Orme end of the bay through to the Little Orme at
Craig y Don. The victorian hotels that line the promenade in a
City-of-Bath like crescent are policed to an extreme. In 2009 an
hotelier unwittingly painted his hotel in an "inappropriate" colour and
the full weight of the local planning rules crashed down on him. The
story made the national newspapers with many ridiculing the local
authority and its rules. But the council stuck to its guns and ....well
the hotelier was made to repaint his hotel in an appropriate colour and
the promenade still looks as good as it did in Victorian times.
