In February 2014, Isle of Anglesey County Council granted Conygar Stena Line Ltd outline planning permission (with all matters reserved) for the Holyhead Waterfront Regeneration Scheme.
The outline planning permission was granted subject to a condition which time-limited the implementation of the development, with an end date of February 2021. As such, the planning permission has now lapsed.
However, the new Applicant, Conygar Holyhead Ltd, remains firmly committed to a regeneration project at Holyhead Waterfront and, since the granting of outline planning permission, has taken the opportunity to alter and refine the scheme design to better account for the current environmental, economic and social conditions.
Conygar’s plans are designed to deliver the complete regeneration of the waterfront area and aim to:
- Attract more visitors to both Holyhead and Anglesey through enhancement of the area as a leisure and tourism destination;
- Regenerate the area through continued investment by the renovation and re-use of the Listed Buildings and Listed Structures along the waterfront and coastline;
- Improve public access, extend the Promenade, enhance public open space along Beach Road and create a new beach east of the new breakwater and marina facility; and
- Work in partnership with established local businesses and other tourist attractions such as the Breakwater Country Park to provide wider community benefits.
Conygar Holyhead Ltd is now looking to submit a full detailed planning application to Isle of Anglesey County Council in the coming months.
