Business Parks

There has been a shortage of sites and premises for industrial and business use in Holyhead for many years, which has seriously limited the opportunities for local business expansion and inward investment. This situation is finally now changing, thanks to a number of major infrastructure investments.

Penrhos Business Park

This has involved a £3.5M investment by Anglesey County Council to provide four 400sqm business units, four 150sqm units, and a number of development plots. The site is located on the east side of A55 Junction 2. The 400sqm units were completed Summer 2006 and the 150sqm units were completed in Summer 2008. . Funding for the scheme has come from the EU Objective One, Welsh Assembly Government, Nuclear Decommissioning Agency, and Anglesey County Council. The uptake of plots and units has been good.

Parc Cybi Development

Parc Cybi is a major strategic business investment site for North West Wales. It is located on the southern edge of Holyhead on the west side of A55 Junction 2, and has outline planning consent for a number of business uses. The Welsh Assembly Government has purchased the land and has serviced the site for new employment developments. The project has included the creation of a new road link to A55 Junction 2, and also to with Trearddur Bay - Kingsland road. The site also benefits from a direct link to the Fibrespeed ICT fibre optic cable network. Parc Cybi is seen as being especially critical to the success of the Holyhead Forward strategy. A private developer (Conygar) has secured planning application to build several office and distribution units on the site. 

A new Truckstop has recently been built by RoadKing.

Holyhead Wastewater Treatment Works

A major £35M upgrade of the waste water treatment infrastructure of the Holyhead area has been undertaken by Welsh Water, providing much-needed capacity for new developments to take place. This has included the construction of a new state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant, but also new and upgraded sewerage transfer pipes and pumping stations serving the town and nearby villages. This scheme has removed the previous restrictions on additional effluent generation which existed in the past. It also provides for much improved sea water quality at Trearddur Bay and Holyhead.

A55 Expressway Extension

The £120M dual carriageway road scheme across Anglesey to Holyhead was completed in 2001, vastly improving road travel times to/from Holyhead and providing fast road links to the UK motorway system via the A55 North Wales Expressway.
