A Section 215 Notice was served in February 2019 requiring Mr Blackall to undertake works to improve the untidy condition of land he owns.

Following non-compliance, Mr Blackall was prosecuted for the offence at Llandudno Magistrates court yesterday (05/11/19).
Cllr Charlie McCoubrey, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Cabinet Member for Housing and Regulatory said: “It is the responsibility of the Local Planning Authority to investigate cases which involve the condition of buildings or land, including people’s homes, that is considered to be detrimental to the appearance of the area. Due to the untidy condition of the property a Notice was issued requiring the owner to address the matter. Despite repeated warnings, the requirements of the Notice were not complied with, and legal proceedings were necessary to require the owner to carry out the work to improve the condition of this property.”
