THE club has submitted a planning application to Conwy County Council’s planning department for a new 1,050-seater stand at the 4 Crosses Construction Arena.
The new stand will replace the two existing covered terraced stands on the bank side of the ground, which were constructed in the late 1980s.
The plans also include a car parking area at the rear of the ground.
The new stand would take the ground’s seating capacity to 1,850 which would put the club in a strong position to hold international and representative games.
The planning application will now be considered by Conwy’s planning committee at a future council meeting.
Club chairman Neil Coverley said:
“We are very excited. We are at a stage where the club is doing well in the league. The fans are superb, and there is excitement around the town.
“The excitement, the enthusiasm around Colwyn Bay and Old Colwyn is immense “Commercially we are fine, and there is a lot of excitement with different avenues we are exploring, and everyone is working hard behind the scenes to deliver off the pitch as well.
“We are hoping when planning goes through, hopefully by the end of October, we are looking to get shovels in the ground instantly, and we are looking at a sixteen to eighteen-week period of build with the weather, so hopefully it will be completed by the end of the season.”
