#4This is a good local business that is used by local people as well as tourists. It needs our support.
Paul Carter (Trefriw, 2018-06-12)
#7It dose not obstruct people when passing
Thelma Williams (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#10I want fo be able to have acup of tea outside if i want
Bob Roberts (Lkanrhychwyn Trefriw, 2018-06-12)
#11we were there yesterday and sat outside, there is plenty of room for people to pass safely.
Donna Williams (Penmachno, 2018-06-12)
#16The tables pose no obstruction and provide a welcome pleasant facility on the square.
Jayne Wainwright (Capel Curig, 2018-06-12)
#17I am a huge fan of the cafe and the tables look welcoming and inviting
Becca Lloyd (Trefriw , 2018-06-12)
#20Anna has set up a wonderful hub for the community in the form of Contessa Cafe. Conwy council should be ashamed of themselves attacking a small, local business. The table and chairs do no harm. I passed with a double buggy last week and there was plenty of room.
Llanrwst needs all the help it can get to attract tourism... Conwy council should be supporting local businesses, not trying to ruin them.
Craig Ryder (London, 2018-06-12)
#23Their reasons are nonsense and it is just typical of a small minded council
Tim White (Trefriw, 2018-06-12)
#25I don't see it as an obstruction
Sandra Thomas (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#26When the sun is out, people come to llanrwst, if none of the cafes offer outside seating they will go elsewhere. It’s good for disabled people, older people, people with dogs or children.
Melissa Wilson (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#28The benches outside are ideal for people with prams, wheelchair users and people with dogs who fancy stopping for a cup of tea, pathetic that they are seen as a nuisance!
Vhairi Campbell (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#31Anna has built up a lovely business for our community she has worked hard and has now provided access for wheelchair users families with puschairs and for people with pet dog's if she is forced to give up this seating area then so should other businesses have to remove goods outside shops and tables and chairs
Sioned Jones (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#34I believe Llanrwst needs all the help it can , to keep it alive , the banks have gone, pubs struggling; business fighting to make a living ... Don't Kill off any more of Llanrwst.
Lynne Parry (Llandudno junction , 2018-06-12)
#35I think it’s ridiculous llanrwst is becoming a ghost town as it is !!!
Matt Dawson (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#37Cafe Contessa has been popular and successful addition to LLanrwst Square for a number of years..
How extraordinary that Conwy CBC should make this decision without any discussion or thought for the local people of the town or the tourist that visit.
avril humphreys (conwy, 2018-06-12)
#38I disagree with the council.
Hannah Morris (Conwy, 2018-06-12)
#42This is ludicrous! No obstruction whatsoever
Steph Jones (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#43I’m originally from Llanrwst it’s one of the only towns where community spirit still exists, what harm do the tables and chairs outside cause? People sometimes prefer to be outside and accessibility to parents with prams or people who use disability aids could be restricted inside!
Rhi Evans (Caernarfon , 2018-06-12)
#46This is absolutely ridiculous!!! It’s a cafe. Why not have the facilities for people to eat outside? People out with dogs, babies/toddlers in push chairs that can’t be kept inside.. Other places in Llanrwst have “obstructions” outside their businesses!!! These table and chairs no way block the path for pedestrians passing through!
Kelly Fosters Towers (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#52The seating area outside is not an obstruction and us instead a pleasant place to sit. Great for cyclists, mothers with pushchairs and so on. Businesses such as Cafe Contessa should be encouraged to create such seating areas as they add to the vibrancy of a town, at a time when such places are struggling as they are no longer appealing destinations.
Stuart Kelly (Trefriw, 2018-06-12)
#53I cannot find any problem.i live locally and I am quite happy with their tables there.
Val O'shea (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#54It makes the sqaure look inviting to tourists and locals alike.
Cllr Christopher Thomas (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#55Cafe Contessa is an asset to the town and Ancaster Square
Susan Lloyd (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#61It's needed in the town
Yvonne Roberts (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#69Cafi Contessa is a great community hub, run independently and as such, should be supported by the council, not penalised.
Anna is a local, independent business woman who is doing all she can for the community.
Kristine Jenkins (Dolwyddelan, 2018-06-12)
#70I support the owner in her business venture and the chairs and tables outside make the cafe accessible to more people
Rhianwen Williams (Llangernyw, 2018-06-12)
#71Stop bully these businesses who bring and cater for the visitors to our Towns & Villages. The only obstruction on the Llanrwst Town square is that clock tower and the Tuesday Market which causes a danger to pedestrian and vehicular traffic alike.
Geoff Jones (Trefriw, 2018-06-12)
#76I think its unfair that other cafes on the square have table and chairs. Y
Lisa Virano (Betwsycoed, 2018-06-12)
#80The café is an important business for locals and tourists alike. The additional covers that the outside seating provide are clearly of great import in the success of the business and the provision of service during peak trading times. The council should allow this business to trade with ample outdoor capacity.
Simon Ellison (Trefriw, 2018-06-12)
#82This, another cafe on the square has tables outside their business!!
Shian Evans (Penmachno, 2018-06-12)
#86after you let the Banks go from the town without much resistance at least you can help struggling business like this, nothing nicer than seeing people eat. Also as a wheelchair user I cannot get into a lot of properties so being able to eat outside is a bonus, the same for those with dogs , prams etc Mx
Meira Owen (Abergele, 2018-06-12)
#94The tables & chairs have been put out to ensure they do not cause an obstruction.
If the council has concerns about wheelchair users and access, they should consider widening the pavements around Llanrwst to allow wheelchair users to use them without concern about tipping off the edge!
Furthermore, the other cafe on Ancaster Square has table & chairs outside, taking up considerably more space than Anna, have they also been requested to remove outside seating areas?
Paula Hubble Wynne (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)

Rhydian Owen (LLANRWST, 2018-06-12)
#98Plenty of room just like the other caff
Diane Jones (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#100I am local and go everyday into Llanrwst. The table in question pause absolutely no problem of any kind. On the contrary they make the square look more lively
Karine Decorne (Llanrws , 2018-06-12)
#103Can't see the problem with the tables and chairs there is ample room in that area for pedestrians.
Mark Williams (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#104Would they do this in Betws? CCBC should be supporting the community and its businesses
Adam Jones (LLANRWST, 2018-06-12)
#105I used to live here ..
fabulous cafe ...needs to thrive and have enough covers to do so
Sue Corr (Cromarty, 2018-06-12)
#108They are not an obstruction and why should one business be permitted to have outside seating and not the other?
Ian Roberts (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#109I see absolutely no reason to move them!
Susan Davis (Rhos on sea, 2018-06-12)
#110This is frequented by local people. The council should represent them . If yhey want and use the tables outside they should stay.
Sally Stratford (Capel Curig , 2018-06-12)
#115Cafi Contessa provides an important service to the centre of Llanrwst. Normally there are no tables and chairs on the pavement but in the current hot weather this provides a useful benefit as well as adding to the ambience. Llanrwst relies on passing trade and external seating is a draw to the square, with the added benefit of encouraging people to stay and become aware of the additional shops and services available. The furniture is not causing an obstruction and there are several other premises on Ancaster square which apparently can have their own furniture on the square permanently without any threat from the council. Prohibiting this welcome amenity is a case of Conwy Borough Council cutting off its nose to spite its face.
Conan McDonnell (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#117It’s been great to see Llanrwst square busy during the daytime.
Claire Peel (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#118They should be allowed
dorte Jensen (silkeborg, 2018-06-12)
#121Great option to sit outside, it gives the town centre a nice feel, relaxed look and general pleasing ambiance that encourages people to stop and take note of the town.
Nathan Jones (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#124Being a reletave new comer to the area, I understand that small business in the local area need as much support as possible !! Not this hideous action !!
Dean Guy (Trefriw , 2018-06-12)
#130I support Anna as I feel the cafe provides a real focus for the community and the local population. I feel the tables outside look attractive and help to give the square a welcoming look. I think Anna has placed the tables well to ensure they do not cause an obstruction. With the square looking quite run down with so many empty properties I think it is very important to promote the businesses that are keeping the square alive.
Philippa Burgess (Llanrwst , 2018-06-12)
#134The tables have been in place for years with no problem. I’d rather the council spent our money tackling real problems (like Kingdom Security) and leave honest businesses to trade in peace.
Kathy Coutanche (Capel Curig , 2018-06-12)
#136Originally from Llanrwst. Love Caffi Contessa.
Scott Williams (Manchester, 2018-06-12)
#142I live locally and visit Llanrwst daily
Nicola Wardle (Capel Garmon, 2018-06-12)
#147It makes the town look busier and more attractive to stop and shop or eat out
Wyn Williams (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#148This seems very unfair treatment.
Catrin Jones (Corwen, 2018-06-12)
#150I'm signing as I feel cafe contessa looks welcoming to visitors and residents alike, I see no problem with these tables outside there is still plenty of room for people to pass. We are trying to encourage trade not send it away!,
Gwyneth Roberts (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#153It creating a lovely ambiance on the square in llanrwst
Fiona jones Jones (Llanrwst, 2018-06-12)
#159Caernarfon is vastly improved and has seen an increase in tourist foot fall. I am sure this is partly as a result of the al fresco dining. Caffi Contessa should be afforded the option of tables and chairs for Al Fresco dining.
Patsy Dryhurst (Caernarfon , 2018-06-13)
#160I think it is disgusting the table and chairs outside contessas cafe do not cause no more obstructions than those outside labaricca
Catherine Morris (Bangir, 2018-06-13)
#161Sitting out in the square enhances the atmosphere and encourages visitors to stop and browse the shops.
Sally Jones (Llandudno, 2018-06-13)
#164Conwy Council is wrong.
Emma Roberts (Conwy, 2018-06-13)
#168The chairs in question cause no hazard. I have walked past on many occasions with no issues.
Jon Spashett (Trefiw , 2018-06-13)
#172I love seeing (and sitting on) the chairs in the square . I think they significantly improve the attractiveness of Llanrwst, it is an inviting scene that makes people want to stop. Removing these would be to the detriment of other businesses and the town in general.
Elizabeth Burnside (Treriw, 2018-06-13)
#173The agreement was in place, so it should be honoured. Also, having tables outside the cafe looks positive and vibrant for Llanrwst Square.
Peter Borlace (Llanrwst, 2018-06-13)
#175The tables do not cause an obstruction and add to the lovely feel and atmosphere of the cafe
Lorraine Hughes (llanrwst, 2018-06-13)
#176This place is clearly a community hub, very popular with locals. It also makes adds a little something to the area, helping to create a kind of cafe culture on the square. It does not cause an obstruction any more than the other cafes that have chairs and tables outside and Conwy Council. How did they get permission or are all the businesses being similarly sanctioned? I believe Conwy have a county wide policy not to allow tables and chairs although clearly many businesses do have them so there is clearly a means of securing consent. Why not explain that instead of threatening a local business?
Mari Martin-Matthews (Betws y coed , 2018-06-13)
#179Lovely little cafe and friendly staff.
Pen Williams (Llanrwst , 2018-06-13)
#182I am signing this petition because I hoensetsky think it’s a good idea, this is because the customers now have the option to eat outside when the weather is like this. The tables aren’t in anyone’s way... what happened to helping and supporting local business!????
Karla-Leigh Llewellyn (Wales, 2018-06-13)
#191Others have table and chairs on the square so why not this cafe. They are not an obstruction if the Square can hold a market then they can hold a few table and chairs.
Nicola Mills (Dolgarrog , 2018-06-13)
#196Contessa cafe is not only a cafe for the locals its a local business and a thriving business
Catherine Morris (Bangor, 2018-06-13)
#197I’m from llanrwst and it’s not an obstruction, it’s a local business trying to succeed
Peter Rowley (Labrador city, 2018-06-13)
#199Lovely place to sit with company and a lovely cafe
Ben Thompson (Trefriw, 2018-06-13)
