Work on new £4.2m business units will get underway shortly as the County Council continues to support business development and new job creation.

The importance of small and medium sized businesses is well recognised, whilst the Wylfa Newydd Nuclear new build, along with other proposed major developments, could create considerable new supply chain opportunities.

To ensure Anglesey keeps pace with these developments, in addition to further growth and demand in traditional sectors, new business units and extra office space is to be developed on the Parc Bryn Cefni Enterprise Zone in Llangefni. These will be available to let early 2019.

Dawnus Construction Holdings Ltd have been appointed to undertake the works following a recent open tender process.

With their North Wales office based in Bangor along with a history of successful project delivery on Anglesey, Dawnus will apply their local knowledge and experience in managing numerous major construction projects to the developments in Llangefni. The work will begin early in March.

The development of five new units on the former Môn Training site will provide over 1,200m² of office, light industrial and storage space for businesses. In addition, over 700m² of office space will be created as the Anglesey Business Centre is extended.

Major Projects and Economic Development portfolio holder, Cllr Carwyn Jones, said,

“The Bryn Cefni site is one of the top three premier Enterprise Zones sites identified due to its strategic position in the centre of the Island, and its links with the Grwp Llandrillo Menai Campus that will serve the energy sector developments over the next decade.”

“The scale of planned investment in low carbon energy sector alone over the next 15 years could amount to around £12bn. These new units and extra office space will support the continued economic growth of Anglesey, the wider North Wales region and the ongoing development of our Energy Island Programme.”

Anglesey’s Head of Regulation and Economic Development, Dylan Williams, added,

“We recognise the importance of European Union funding and Welsh Government support. The new provision will add value, hopefully enable existing businesses to grow and attracting new enterprise to the Island.”

The new units on both sites are due to be completed by end of 2018.
