Hotel-apartments and cafe plan unveiled for old Conwy Police Station 

05 - 02 - 2024

Conwy's old police station is set to be partly demolished and transformed into an ‘apart-hotel’ with a possible café – if planning permission is granted. Plans have been submitted by architects for the former police station on Lancaster Square which include repairs, alterations, and partial demolition of the building.

The station is a listed building within Conwy ’s walls, a World Heritage Site, but has been closed since 2022, with police operations gradually scaled back over the years. On behalf of architects Donald Insall Associates, Mr Alun Jones submitted the application to Conwy County Council’s planning department for the 241-square-metre site, looking to transform the building into ’19 apart-hotel studios’ which will include either a café or retail space. Apart-hotels usually combine apartment-style accommodation with hotel services.

The parts of the police station proposed to demolished are the later-constructed rear additions to the building, which include staff rooms, cells, and a yard and roof terrace, as well as external walls facing York Place and Rose Hill Street
