Complaints over derelict building


* Complaints about this building.

"Beyond a joke," says councillor

 
Something should be done about the condition of the derelict former brewery opposite the park in Llan.
That was the call from Cllr Mike Pugh at the latest meeting of the full council.
Complaining that the state of the building was “now beyond a joke”, he added:  “It is falling deeper into disrepair.
“It’s on the main road and infested with rodents.
“I am not sure whose ownership it is now in but is there anything the council can do to make it safe?”
Town clerk J Gareth Thomas said owners could be forced into a position by law in which repairs had to be carried out, or health issues may be a matter for environmental health officers.
He said he would contact the county council expressing members’ concerns.
Also at the meeting other members raised concerns about a range of matters. These included:
·         The “increasing” volume of traffic on Brook Street and the large dip in the carriageway at the junction with the A5 – from Cllr Tony Baker.
·         Parking along Hall Street and the nearby A5 close to the park – from Cllr Tim Palmer.
·         The town clerk said he raise these concerns with the appropriate authorities.

  1. I reported this to Denbighshire CC over a month ago and the Planning Department are investigating, but have not come back to me yet!

    There are a number of vacant/unused and under used properties in Llangollen and as an Area of Oustanding National Beauty the Local Authority should be tackling this issued vigorously.
