Welsh secretary William Hague will meet Gwynedd CC representatives to discuss last June's high court ruling that a 30 year old planning consent to build holiday homes at a coastal beauty spot is still valid.

The Western Mail (p7) reports that the council is fiercely opposed to the building plans but is unable to lodge an appeal in the high court because of the costs involved.

A council spokesman told the paper that the authority was delighted that Mr Hague had agreed to meet representatives.

'This is a site of special scientific interest and as well as the environmental implications of such a large development there is also the impact on the surrounding communities,' said the spokesman.

'We feel the high court ruling was wrong and will be pressing Mr Hague to use his influence and order a full public inquiry.'

The Welsh office said it was hoped that Mr Hague's meeting with the councillors would take place as soon as possible.
