Che the council's stance on Welsh is mad to say the least!

Having worked for them for over three years at a local site, I could never understand their requirement that staff be bilingual when the majority of visitors were Eastern European and English speakers! lol

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for supporting the Welsh language, but within reason too.

Too often have I had interviews only to hear I 'didn't have enough experience' when I stumbld with my Welsh ability.

I think they should work towards a position where all public sector employees all over Wales are bilingual.  It will take decades but it is the way to go.

I'd always assumed that the lifeboat building (seating for 80 persons) would be listed. However, I've just googled "Listed Buildings Holyhead" and got the following. I can't see it on there (unless i missed it).

http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/wales/isle+of+anglesey/holyhead

Doesn't mention North Stack or South Stack either.

Seating for 80 Persons is on there, right at the bottom as 'Zodiac Restaurant'.

Ahhh, so it is!

Wonder why they didn't list it as "Former Lifeboat Station" or "Maritime Museum". It may have meant something then.

Have I missed something or has everyone else noticed that with the exception of the Labour Party - who have been outspokenly 'pro' and hogged page after page in the local press,  the other main parties - LibDem, Plaid, Tory,  have been remarkably quiet over the issues of the Marina & Penrhos,  with the exception of the odd councillor who is speaking more on behalf of the ward residents than stating a party line?

Seens rather bizarre to me.

It was in the HAM that outline plannings been granted. They still need to hold meetings about it

Yea but where's the political opposition?  How come none of the other parties except Labour seems to have a party stand on this?    Are they all in favour but scared of saying so?  Are they waiting to see how big opposition is at groundlevel?

I know that the pictures are a bit of hyperbole but please let me indulge myself (and those of a certain age) in the memories of a wonderful place on Earth,

There's a good letter in the HAM this week about it. It hits a good few things on the head like the act of parliament stating it to be a harbour of refuge, the sea bed being owned by Westminster and the fact that the current marina is still half empty after 12 years. Not to mention the fact that the only thing that would make this worthwhile being the breakwater repairs when Stena claim they don't own it.

If Stena don't own it why do they spend so much time doing work on it.

They are pulling a fast one.  Probably trying a dodge so that they can somehow con the Welsh Government ( ie you and me ) into picking up the repair bill.

It is definately Stena's breakwater.  They even sponsor fishing events of it FFS.

I found this photo on the Conygar website which appears to show a far smaller, less dense development with no marina breakwater and apartments along the Newry but more development from Trinity House round towards the breakwater. Does anyone know anything about this?

http://www.conygar.com/Project/Holyhead/6

It is labelled as Holyhead Joint Venture 2 - with who? Trinity Marine? It does show a small extention to the existing marina.

Cheers

I'm surprised that there's a need for an 80 bed hotel...

A little late in the day perhaps but opponents of the scheme have entered a "Village Green" application:

There is a public meeting in the County School on the 6th to discuss the village green application.

Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Looking again at the artist's impression of the new development, I cannot help but ponder that it is so inaccurate a shape and colour given to The Mountain that it can't be serious.
