Glanrafon, Llanrwst

Pont y Pair Bridge, Betws y Coed


Issues of anti-social behaviour which surround the activity of bridge-jumping at Pont y Pair in Betws y Coed becomes prevalent during the summer months.

North Wales Police, Conwy County Borough Council and partner agencies have tried over the years to find a solution to this problem to alleviate the disturbance and detrimental effect on the quality of life of residents and also to the experience of visiting tourists.

In June 2015 a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) was introduced under the Anti-social Behaviour Crime & Policing Act 2014 to try and tackle the issues around Pont y Pair. PSPOs are valid for 3 years but can be extended.

It has been agreed with North Wales Police that there is a continuing need for the Order to remain in force in the area and it has therefore been extended for a further 3 years until June 2021.

The signage will be renewed to reflect this. A breach of the Order is a criminal offence and is dealt with by way of Fixed Penalty Notice (£100) or prosecution through the Magistrates’ Court.
