Welsh Govt decides not to call in Holyhead leisure plan

The Welsh Government has decided not to call in controversial plans for a leisure village and hundreds of new homes at Holyhead on Anglesey.

The scheme, by Land and Lakes, promises 600 jobs at Anglesey Aluminium Metals and was approved by Anglesey Council's planning commmittee last November.

The Welsh Government's Minister for Housing and Regeneration, Carl Sargeant said Anglesey should determine the application as it sees fit.

Anglesey Councillor Arwel Roberts, said: “These plans represent the largest ever application to be submitted to the Isle of Anglesey Council."

“I am pleased with the Minister’s decision that the proposals should be determined by the local authority and we are now in a position to take the next steps and continue discussions with the developer.”
