These so-called 'groundworks' are a statutory obligation that they have to carry out every year or forfeit the planning application.

Taken 29:04 back of ALPOCO, leads off from the remains of the old A5 towards the railway bridge.  Access would be possible from the actual A5, meaning a portion of the old A5 gets resurrected.

I'd rather it didn't.

This is an old report (nearly two months).  There is some element of 'mis-reporting' in that article.   There were no long-running discussions between Land & Lakes and Horizon concerning nuclear workers.   

What there was in reality was Land & Lakes continually trying to get Horizon to negotiate with little success.   Horizon's position over Penrhos was made clear at the outset and has remained resolute from then to now - that they had no plans to house the workers there.

Horizon - via Conygar,  have aquired the old Rhosgoch site and intend to build their own camp there, which will be converted to council housing at the end of the build and gifted to the council as part of their 'legacy'.  In addition they tend to utilise B&Bs, private lets etc etc to supplement this in an area covering the whole island and the adjoining mainland as far as Conwy/Llandudno one way, Caernarfon the other,  in order to disperse the workforce as much as possible and prevent the over-loading of local services and infra-structure.

Since that article Land 7 Lakes have abandoned their initial plan and no longer intend to build on Cae Glas,  no longer intend to build the 300 4/5 bed etached houses on Kingsland and will reduce the size of the core complex on the Penrhos side.

And it now appears that they don't intend to use the Rhosgoch site for accommodation - they intend to build far closer than that to the site

Presumably then Rhosgoch will be some sort of forward logistics dump for materials.

BUT people should also remember that when Land & Lakes bludgeoned the council Planning Officers into passing this, the s106 restrictions that were put in place were only applicable if the whole thing went ahead, not just part of it.  So Land & Lakes will now no longer build a new Nature Reserve, new Cricket Pitch, new Swimming Pool, new Football Pitch and new affordable housing for locals. They also are no longer obligated to donate to social care/schools/fire/hospital funds locally.  In addition,  they currently owe the Council 1.5M (and rising), are late paying it - by a year or so, and according to their accounts at Companies House are currently unable to repay even one percent of that.
