£1m community hotel plan for Dyffryn Nantlle discussed

Ozanam Centre St Vincent de Paul Society owns the site

A public meeting has been held to discuss a £1m plan to buy a disused holiday centre in north Wales.

The former Ozanam Centre in Dyffryn Nantlle, Gwynedd, closed in August 2011 but community group Menter Llyfni want to see it reopen as a hotel complex.

Christian group St Vincent de Paul Society owns the site, which was a holiday camp venue.

It has agreed to hold discussions over the proposals next week.

Local councillor OP Huws said a business plan would devised after the meeting.

The centre at Llanllyfni was a holiday camp for children and people in need from 1979 until 2011.

Menter Llyfni want to lease the site from the society for a year while funds are raised to buy it outright.

Mr Huws said the development plans included a four-star hotel and restaurant.

The Dyffryn Nantlle area is a popular destination for visitors heading for Snowdonia, close to Caernarfon and areas around the national park.
