North Anglesey regeneration: council launches consultation

A public consultation aimed at shaping the future of Amlwch and North Anglesey has been launched.

Residents and businesses in the area have been asked to share their views as Anglesey Council looks towards creating a new regeneration plan.

A 54-page topic report has been published, setting out potential ideas and opportunities after the council formally approved planning guidance for the proposed Wylfa Newydd nuclear plant last month. The paper will be discussed by councillors on Tuesday.

Dylan Williams, head of economic development at Anglesey Council, said: ”We are keen to receive comments and ideas that will help us to address the needs and issues facing the North Anglesey area, and Amlwch as its main town.”

”By preparing a regeneration plan for the area, we hope to see more investment, projects and activities taking place, and we are asking the people of the area what they think and would like to see happening. The results of this and other research and engagement activities will then be brought together to prepare an economic regeneration plan for the area.”

The proposed economic plan would also include both the Talybolion and Twrcelyn wards along with Moelfre.

The portfolio holder for economic development, Councillor Carwyn Jones, said they were especially keen to hear ideas from the private sector in creating the new plan: ”North Anglesey faces a number of challenges and opportunities, not least the planned Wylfa Newydd development.”

”A lot of background research has already been done in recent months to look at the area, and we now need to move to a stage where there are viable project proposals that can be put to funding bodies like the Welsh Government.”

Both the topic paper and the regeneration survey are available on the council’s website. The consultation closes on Monday 16th July 2018.

The Amlwch and North Anglesey Regeneration Plan Survey questionnaire is available on www.anglesey.gov.uk under ‘Consultations’ and can also be found on the County Council’s social media pages. Closing date 16th July 2018.
