business units approved for anglesey heliport site

In 2010 the unused heliport in Anglesey was demolished - paving the way for a potential business development that could encourage more firms to locate to the island's growing economy.

Now planning proposals for 10 flexible business units have been approved by Anglesey County Council.

The units will form part of the Anglesey Enterprise Zone and help meet demand for more small and medium sized business units.

Research undertaken by the council’s Economic & Community Regeneration Service revealed a need for more SME premises on the island, and now the units have been given the green light by planners, they could help create over 40 full time jobs.

Earlier this quarter, the Daily Post reported that Anglesey’s economy was the fastest growing in Wales, with a 2.6% growth rate.

And confidence is high at the moment, with several big projects proposed in and around the island – including the Wylfa Newydd power station, and the creation of world-leading marine energy company Minesto’s first UK headquarters.

Dylan Williams, Head of Economic and Community Regeneration at Anglesey County Council, said: “Developing this strategic site – which is part of the Welsh Government’s Enterprise Zone – is of critical importance to enable local business expansion, and contribute to future demands associated with the Energy Island Programme.”
