Plans for £100m Holyhead waterfront scheme submitted

Plans to transform Holyhead waterfront in a £100m scheme have been submitted.

Conygar Holyhead Limited secured outline planning for the scheme in 2014 after a long battle due to considerable local opposition.

Earlier this year they started a pre-application consultation on detailed plans for the Newry Beach area next to the existing marina.

Now that scheme has been submitted to Anglesey council’s planning department.

More CGI images by Cornish firm CAD Architects have also been released of the project.

The proposed development will include a 250-berth marina, 259 townhouses and apartments, marine commercial and additional A1/A3 retail units on the waterfront, together with substantial areas of improved public realm, and an amphitheatre and covered arcade for open-air events.

There would be a new breakwater erected to provide additional shelter, with the existing marina – owned by a different company – badly damaged in Storm Emma in 2018.

Listed buildings Soldiers Point House and Porth-y-Felin House would be restored and converted into apartments.

Robert Ware, chief executive of Conygar, said: “We are pleased to have submitted our planning application and are very optimistic that these proposals will be a catalyst for the regeneration of Holyhead, bringing significant economic benefits to the area and local community.”

A spokesman added: “The submission of the application follows a period of stakeholder and community engagement, carried out earlier this year, and a mandatory period of pre-application consultation, which concluded in August.”

CAD Architects managing director Mark Dawes said: “Our vision is to transform Holyhead waterfront into a vibrant place to live, work and play, whilst preserving its unique character and protecting the existing setting.

“CAD Architects has over 20 years’ experience of working with developers on large scale developments that work in harmony with the local environment.

“Our team is looking forward to help bring the Holyhead Waterfront Redevelopment Scheme to life.”
