CCTV Provision - Holyhead
- Published on Thursday, 30 April 2015 11:25
As I am sure you are aware, the Anglesey County Council decided last year to dis-continue the provision of CCTV services on the island of Anglesey. Holyhead Town Council took the view that this would be detrimental to public safety in our town and decided to get together with the other four towns on the island to apply for funding to provide a new system.
I am pleased to advise you that we have now, as Holyhead Town Council, secured the funding and a totally new system will be installed covering the town centre, Victoria Road and the promenade with new high definition CCTV which will be recorded 24 hours a day. The new system will include 48 new high definition cameras and will be the responsibility and monitored by Holyhead Town Council on behalf of the community that the Town Council represents.
I am sure that you would agree that this is good news for the town and as I am sure you are aware, the Holyhead Town Council also opened the new public conveniences in Swift Square. This is a very important service for visitors to the town and to locals and I will be actively looking at other projects in the future as we have done by opening the new Empire Playcentre/Cinema complex which has created 11 new jobs in the town and up to date has had up to 102,000 visitors through its doors.
If you have any questions or need any clarification from me, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Statement from Dafydd Jones of Conygar:
We are aware of comments that have appeared in the media as regards the future of the Greens at Newry Beach many of which have been mischievous, misleading and inaccurate.
It has been suggested by certain parties that amongst other things that the Greens could be built on in the future and that public access to the area would be denied, no funfairs or circuses to be held on the Greens. no picnics etc. There have even been suggestions that the Coast guard Station could be closed and that the Newry Beach allotment gardens would be threatened under the redevelopment proposals.
Both of these suggestions are completely untrue and in fact the areas involved are not even part of the Conygar Stenas ownership. Holyhead Town Council resolved to support the application for the economic benefits it would bring to the town of Holyhead and surrounding area.
The Town Council were well aware of public concerns as regards the future of the Newry Greens and wanted to ensure that they would always be preserved and that the public would keep the same access rights and facilities that they have always enjoyed. Conygar Stena Line already own the freehold of the Newry Greens which are leased to Ynys Mon Council and therefore are entering into discussions with the Council to explore the possibility of obtaining a surrender of the Councils interest. This surrender would be conditional on the then transfer of the freehold to the Holyhead Town Council after agreed landscape works had been carried out including the reinstatement of the marine lake and sunken garden if required with an agreement in place to ensure the future maintenance at no cost to the Council.
