Have your say on Menai Science Park plan


Geraint Jones

THE public can have their say on plans for a £10 million science park on Anglesey.

Bangor University will hold its latest consultation session on the Menai Science Park at Gaerwen village hall on September 1.

A Bangor university spokesman said: “Residents are invited to come along to view the initial ideas.

“With archaeology works being conducted on site and a number of other studies underway, the aim will be to submit the outline planning application in the autumn.”

The 20 acre park in Gaerwen is expected to be completed for the 2016-17 academic year.

The park is funded by Welsh Government and EU Structural funds.

The spokesman added: “Work is already underway to find companies who will provide support services, and many of these conversations are taking place with projects already running within the university and within the business community.

“A positive level of interest has been shown by companies and ventures in the area who wish to locate on the park, with the overall aim of creating and supporting skilled and well paid employment in the area.”

The consultation will be held from 2pm-7pm.

A copy of the site masterplan will be on show, and project team members and masterplanners will be available for discussions.
