       Proposed by Cllr. Worswick and seconded by Cllr. Corry and agreed and signed.

137/11 Reports For Members Consideration.

   (i) P. F. R. Sub group.
   (ii) Amendments to Proposed Revenue Spend 2010/2011.
A recommendation had been made by the PFR Sub Group that the funding available within
the current years estimates for Junior/senior play area £5000.00 and BMX Track £4000.00
be carried forward into financial year 2011/2012 in order to enable a substantial grant
application for the Kinmel Bay play area to be made.

Proposed by Cllr. Worswick and seconded by Cllr. Corry that the transfer of funds be
approved and this was agreed

(iii) Assistant to the Clerk.

The Clerk informed members that his assistant Ms Williams had been successful in passing
the finance module of the SLCC’s qualification. Members congratulated Ms Williams on her
success.

(iv) Alcohol Consumption- Designated Public Drinking Places. Consultation, C.C.B.C.

A consultation document had been received from the Regulatory Services Department of
CCBC. The document sought the views of council on extending those areas where the
consumption of alcohol would not be allowed. Following a debate on the matter the Clerk
was instructed to complete the document as follows:-

        1. That this council “Strongly Agree” that the community is affected by alcohol
           related anti social behavior.
        2. That the council agree there is a “Moderate” impact of alcohol related anti social
           behavior on the community.
        3. This council “Agree” to support the designation of the entire community to be
           subject to an Order

(v) Saint Mary’s Church, Towyn - Proposed War Memorial.

A report was tabled together with a design plan with regard to the above. The Report
indicated that there would be a shortfall of £1,416.00 if the council wished to continue with
the project. The Clerk indicated that the revenue payment of £1,500.00 to CCBC would not
be made during the current financial year and it was therefore possible to vire this money
to meet the shortfall. The Clerk would inform the Royal British Legion of the draft design
and arrangements would be made to ensure that they were fully involved in the project its
self.

It was proposed by Cllr. Roberts and seconded by Cllr Bevan that the virement of
£1,500.00 to the War Memorial Project be approved and that no further support towards
  the improvement of the rest garden within the church grounds be made. This was
  agreed.

  (vi) Conwy County Borough Council; Consultation on the Draft Local Development Plan.

  Cllr. Knightly had asked for the councils support in restricting the granting of 12 month let
  caravan sites through the planning process and that this be included within the Local
  Development Plan section 4.47. Whilst members agreed to the request they felt that it
  would be best dealt with by other external agencies.

  (vii)    Closure of Toilet Facilities, Foryd Road, Kinmel Bay.

  Correspondence had been received from CCBC which indicated that it was their intention to
  close the toilet facilities on Foryd Road, Kinmel Bay and to upgrade the toilet facilities in
  Towyn, consequent to which there would be a charge for its use. Regarding the facility at
  Foryd Road, CCBC had enquired it this council wish to take over the ownership of the
  building and continue to provide the service. The Clerk had indicated to members that in
  terms of risk it would be unwise for them to do as the building is constantly plagued by
  vandalism and the cost of this would ultimately be the councils responsibility as our insurers
  applied a “3 strikes and out” policy to such facilities. A full and frank debate then occurred
  which centred on the fact that the facilities at Towyn were considered to be more
  important than those at Foryd Road, in particular to the fact that the community toilet
  scheme had been well taken up in the Towyn area whilst none had been taken up in Kinmel
  Bay. The Clerk was requested to write to CCBC detailing these concerns and asking to
  reconsider their position on the matter.

  (viii)   Bodelwyddan Action Group.

  The above group had written to the council seeking their support against the proposal by
  Denbighshire County Council to allow planning permission for 7,000 households.

  It was proposed by Cllr. Bevan and seconded by Cllr. Roberts that this council support
  their lobby and this was agreed.

140/11 Mayors Report.

Things have been fairly quiet since the New Year began.

Monday 17th January I was invited by the Towyn Village Ladies to be their guest speaker
at their meeting in the Towyn Community Centre.
I spoke on the subject of my role as Mayor and went onto various topics with some humorous
anecdotes. I held the full attention of the ladies for about 1 hour and seemed to go down very
well.

Friday 28th January I accompanied Cllr. Roberts and the Clerk to a meeting of the North Wales
Association of town and larger community councils held at the Imperial Hotel Llandudno.
Cllr. Roberts raised the issue of Conwy Borough Council Licensing Dept not notifying the town
councils on alcohol licence applications for fast food establishments such as the one granted to
the fast food takeaway in Towyn without our knowledge. This was duly minuted by the Clerk to
the association who said that he would contact the Licensing department on our behalf.

Monday 7th February Cllr. Jones and I were invite to represent Towyn and Kinmel Bay in a
Charity quiz night in aid of the Deanery of our local area.
The Quiz was held at the Elwy Hall in Rhyl. There were over twenty teams involved and our
team, came a respectable 3rd.

Wednesday 16th February, I went along to the Mayor of Llandudno’s 70th Birthday Charity
Celebrations held at Llandudno. This was a splendid affair and the entertainment was provided
be the Llandudno Town Band.

Meeting Closed.
