Redevelopment of Tudno Castle Hotel, Llandudno

Tudno Developments Ltd (part of Opus North) is planning to submit a new planning application on land at Tudno Castle Hotel, Vaughan Street, Llandudno.

In March 2018, planning permission was obtained to redevelop the site into a 63-bed hotel, 5 restaurants and one business unit. Further changes are now required in order to provide a further 27 hotel rooms, alterations to the restaurants, among other changes. These changes require a new planning application to Conwy County Council, which we intend to submit in the coming months.

As part of the statutory consultation process, Tudno Developments Ltd triggered the 28-day pre-application consultation period on Friday 30 October 2020 for this proposal.

You can read detailed information about the proposals as well as the draft planning documents on the Documents and Downloads section.

Tudno Developments Ltd will submit the planning application to Conwy County Council in December 2020. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on our proposals.

Planning History

In 2014 Opus North (Llandudno) Ltd and Tudno Development Ltd a part of Opus North received planning permission from Conwy Council to redevelop the derelict Tudno Castle Hotel. Work started on the development in early 2017. However, as work progressed it became apparent that the building was in a much poorer condition than first thought and demolition was required.

Against this background, in 2018 Tudno Development Ltd received planning consent for the demolition and rebuilding of the former Tudno Castle Hotel. A stipulation of the planning permission stated that the façade of the building had to be recreated so the building will retain its original look from the outside alongside the new retail elements.

Since then development has commenced, the hotel was demolished Summer 2018 and work started on construction of the new building in Winter 2018.  At the time of writing the external building works are nearing completion at the beginning of December.
