The battle is on for the future of north Anglesey. During recent months the region has been hit hard by Hitachi’s suspension of the Wylfa Newydd power plant and confirmation the REHAU plastics plant in Amlwch will shut , with the loss of more than 100 jobs. Wylfa Newydd was expected to bring thousands of roles during construction and create about 850 quality jobs during its 60-year operating period. In total it was supposed to be a 100-year project through construction, operation and decommissioning. This Anglesey hotel is opening new luxury rooms to celebrate its 40th anniversary. In addition, the existing Wylfa Power Station has been the main employer in North Anglesey for several decades, with hundreds of jobs connected directly or indirectly to the plant. In June 2018 it was estimated that Wylfa supported 630 jobs on Anglesey and contributed £32m to Anglesey’s annual GVA (Gross Value Added), according to Anglesey council.
