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. 138/11 Accounts £ VAT Hazelwood Landscapes 110.00 GDS Stationery Ltd 66.59 11.10 Towyn Under Fives Playgroup 100.00 SLCC Practitioner Conference 237.60 39.60 Manweb 96.00 4.57 Chris Jones 120.00 Computer Troubleshooters 282.44 49.43 Salaries 2,266.85 Inland Revenue 969.10 The Energy Company 19.08 3.18 Plusnet Plc 32.39 5.40 Total GP 179.75 8.56 Hostings UK Net 23.99 4.00 A Cleaner Way 255.00 Express Lifts Alliance 186.30 31.05 Cannon Hygiene 143.21 23.87 Angel Springs Ltd 35.42 5.90 GDS Stationery 344.88 57.48 UHY Hacker Young 690.00 115.00 Towyn Youth Centre (Minute 0116/10) 100.00 CCBC Council Tax 1,257.68 It was proposed by Cllr.

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.
