The new lifeboat station was awarded by RNLI to construct a modern boathouse at Craig-y-Don in Llandudno. The new station is designed to house a new 25-knot Shannon-class all-weather lifeboat and a D-class inshore lifeboat together with their launching equipment. The modern facilities will also give the RNLI's volunteer crews the facilities they deserve to provide an efficient lifesaving service for many years to come.

The station is expected to receive the modern Shannon class all-weather lifeboat in 2017, replacing existing Mersey class lifeboat Andy Pearce, which is reaching the end of her operational life. The current Lloyd Street boathouse in a busy town centre is not fit for purpose, in either the facilities it offers our volunteer crew or its location. Neither is it large enough to house the new lifeboat.

In 2012, the RNLI's trustees agreed the allocation of a 25 knot Shannon class lifeboat for Llandudno. With this in mind, and as previous planning applications to build a new lifeboat station on a site near the pier had failed, the RNLI carried out extensive trials at a new site at Craig-y-Don in 2011. These trials were hailed a success, and in due course, in September 2014 the RNLI was granted planning permission to build the new station here. The project is expected to take about 12 months to complete.
