The story has been raised in a local paper, the Weekly News, which had previously quoted a Lib Dem cabinet member of Conwy council as praising a contractor for employing local people and materials.
But according to the paper's latest report:
"The Weekly News has discovered that the steel framework is being erected by Scottish company Solway Steel, and an Alpha Crane has been brought all the way from Ayrshire to help put the components in place. A local contractor, who asked not to be named, is furious. “They have brought a telescopic crane all the way from Scotland, and the steel erectors are from Scotland,” he said."
