1. YES to Land and Lakes

As you are all aware there have been massive job losses in the Anglesey area of late.

You may have heard there has been a proposed offer by a company called Land and Lakes for the site of Penrhos nature park.

This petition is for the backing of this development and to help show our support for the plans and in doing so create jobs for Holyhead.

2. Save PENRHOS Nature reserve (coastal park) Holyhead for the community

Penrhos Nature Reserve (coastal park) Holyhead, has been used by the community for 40 years. Anglesey Aluminium has, over the decades, been given substantial government subsidies, part of the subsidy went towards the upkeep and management of this widely used local nature reserve.

Anglesey Aluminium have decided to sell the entire area to a leisure development company, including Penrhos which is 200 acres. Land and lakes have entered into an option agreement with AA, their proposal involves building a holiday camp on the entire woodland area which means Penrhos nature reserve would cease to exist destroying the unique unspoilt habitat. The public would be prohibited from this area.

Destroying the unspoilt landscape could effect the type of tourism we have on this island: we are at risk of losing our unique selling point our ‘Natural capital’.We would like to invite people to sign this petition to prevent the development.
