Developer Conygar and main contractor Triton Construction have started on work to build Anglesey’s first Premier Inn at Parc Cybi, Holyhead.
The hotel, opposite the Road King truck stop just off Junction 2 of the A55, will be built over a 42-week period and is around 15 miles from the proposed site of the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power plant.
The 80-bed development, which is expected to create 20 full-time jobs, secured planning permission in November last year, while the wider Parc Cybi site has outline consent for a 30,000 sq ft office scheme and 109,000 sq ft of logistics space.
Anglesey Council’s economic development and major projects portfolio holder, Cllr Carwyn Jones, added: “There are currently an unprecedented number of major private sector projects under development on Anglesey.
“I’m pleased that the County Council has been able to help bring this project to fruition. It is another great example of the work being undertaken with both private and public sector partners to secure economic growth here on Anglesey.
“The scale of planned investment in the low carbon energy sector over the next 15 years could also amount to around £12bn. Through the Energy Island Pro- gramme and Anglesey Enterprise Zone, we will continue to work to ensure that the right infrastructure is in place so that the Island benefits from future business opportunities.”
