Cost of fencing off Victoria Pier from the beach.

Steve Hunt made this Freedom of Information request to Conwy County Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Conwy Council,

Please confirm (preferably by providing copies of invoices/receipts) the cost, to date, of erecting the scaffold-tube 'fence' on the beach around Victoria Pier, Colwyn Bay. This should be broken down as the initial construction cost and subsequent rental cost.

Since this work has been carried out by a local scaffolding contractor, I presume there was an initial cost for erecting the 'fence', then an on-going rental charge for the scaffolding, as is the norm for any scaffolding job. This being the case, please confirm also the on-going monthly/weekly/daily (as appropriate) hire rate.

Please also confirm that this cost is being met by RPG Ltd, or if not, why not, and in that case which Council budget the money is coming from, and under what law the Council considers such payment to be legal.
