Publishing comments on planning applications

Please be aware that if you do submit any representations on a planning application they will be published on our webpages. The Council will not publish any that contain defamatory, racist or obscene content, and any which contain sensitive personal information. More information can be found on our Comment on a Planning Application webpage.


This site includes only those records which Conwy County Borough Council hold on computer, and is not therefore a complete database of all information held by the Council nor should it be considered a formal notification document. Please do not rely on information from this site as an alternative to traditional searches which should still be used for official Land Search purposes.

While the Council takes great care to ensure the information provided on this site is accurate, the Council cannot accept any liability or responsibility should you rely on the information provided and ultimately find it to have been incorrect.

Due to technical limitations, we are unable to provide some data on this web page through the medium of Welsh. Every effort is being made to provide as much translated data as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
