Businesses in Welsh town forced to replace UPVC windows

A mayor in Wales claims a dispute about windows could mean more derelict buildings in her Victorian resort town.

Conwy Council, like many local councils in the UK, is forcing homeowners and business owners occupying old and listed buildings to retain badly damaged wooden windows and doors or insist they are only replaced with like-for-like products to protect the traditional features of older buildings.

In Conwy however, one woman is even being forced to replace the UPVC windows that she has had fitted for some time.

Conwy Council has told businesswoman Cindy Atay to replace the UPVC windows in her flats in a listed building in Upper Mostyn Street. But she appealed against an enforcement order, saying the steps required went beyond what was necessary.

She also appealed to be given three years – and not six months – to carry out remedial work.

Mayor Myra Wigzell said Llandudno businesses could close if they must rip out UPVC windows to replace them with sash ones.

She warned that hotels and businesses in the area were already operating on a narrow margin and that being forced to rip out perfectly good windows and doors could signal the end for some of these businesses.

If you live, or run a business, in a listed building that is in need or new windows but would like them to have a traditional look and feel, Clear View has a range of cost-effective aluminium windows in variety of colours and wood-effect finishes to suit older buildings.
