North Wales is in the running for a massive new "super prison" that could house more than 2,000 inmates - and bring hundreds of jobs to the region.
It's one of three areas being considered for the project across England and Wales.
The new building would be the largest prison in the UK and bring millions of pounds to the local economy.
The plans would also see a new mini jail built on the Parc prison site at Bridgend.
The Howard League for Penal Reform has attacked the plans, saying the project "will do nothing to cut crime".
Dwyfor Meirionnydd MP Elfyn Llwyd has rejected the idea of a 'super-prison', although he continues to back the construction of a smaller facility in North Wales
Welsh Secretary David Jones MP says he's confident a strong case can be made for building the prison in North Wales.
