It is a matter of common sense that North Wales is being considered as a potential site for a new prison since prisoners from the area are currently held across the border.
However, the inmate capacity of 2,000 would not meet the needs of the local community, whereas a smaller prison with a capacity of 650-750 would be more appropriate.
Should north Wales prove to be the UK Government's location of choice, there would be no welcome for a new facility unless there was a significant reduction in inmate capacity.
