Plans for a permanent gypsy and traveller site in Conwy have been approved by councillors.

Conwy council gave the green light to land at Bangor Old Road being used as a permanent residential base at a meeting on Wednesday.

The site currently has three caravans belonging to traveller families.

The new scheme will create four plots with each one providing facilities for a static caravan, a touring caravan, a shed and two parking spaces.

The land is owned by the Welsh government, but is expected to be transferred to Conwy council as part of the development.

A housing association is expected to manage the site.
