The development will provide new office accommodation in the centre of Colwyn Bay and redevelop an existing Grade II Listed civic building to the east of the town. It will enable the Council to operate more efficiently and improve services for customers, by consolidating staff and services onto fewer sites.
A new four-storey, BREEAM Excellent, 100,000 sq ft office building with a 354 space multi storey car park will replace up to thirteen existing offices.
Planning permission was secured in August 2016 and construction will commence in spring 2017. The new office will be completed at the end of 2018 and the listed building will then be vacated and redeveloped.
Improving The Environment
As well as providing new office accommodation for the Council, the scheme will improve the physical environment and reduce the Council’s carbon footprint.
The project will act as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of Colwyn Bay town centre.
