Since 1972, 200 acres of Penrhos was opened as a nature reserve (the whole of which spans 600 acres!) by its current owner Anglesea Aluminium Metals Ltd. It is the third most popular site for tourists and is full of interesting wildlife and plant life, some of which were planted over 200 years ago. Penrhos is now at risk as its prospective purchaser, a company called Land & Lakes, have submitted a planning application to deforest a large portion of the nature reserve in order to build a holiday park which will include 487 buildings, access roads, and footpaths. The plans will not only greatly disturb local wildlife, it will restrict public access to a large section of historic woodlands and will lose the integrity of this heritage asset. Penrhos represents great historic and eco-logical importance; it was even designated as a Regionally Important and Geomorphological Site in 2009 and also falls under Anglesey’s status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). This calls for the “the unique landscape, natural beauty and special qualities of the Isle of Anglesey AONB” to be “conserved and enhanced for the benefit of present and future generations”. Such a plan to destroy and build upon this land goes against its status and is not allowed.
