A multi-million pound surf attraction and "wave garden" is expected to be given the go-ahead.

It is hoped Surf Snowdonia, at a former aluminium factory in Dolgarrog in the Conwy Valley, will open in the summer of 2015.

The plans are before Conwy council on Wednesday and councillors are expected to give final planning consent.

Conwy Adventure Leisure said the centre would create 100 construction jobs and 60 jobs on site once up and running.

The plans include a "wave garden" with lagoons, water slide, wakeboard lake, lodges, restaurant, retail and play facilities along with a main car park for up to 250 spaces.

Dolgarrog Aluminium, which employed 170 people, closed in 2007 and an action group was set up to develop the site.

Conwy Adventure submitted the first planning application in 2013 after holding a public consultation.
