Wylfa Newydd delay “very worrying” for north Wales economy

Thursday, 17 January 2019

Responding to the announcement that plans for the Wylfa Newydd project on Anglesey are to be delayed, Cllr Rob Stewart (Swansea), WLGA Spokesperson for Economic Development and Energy, said:

 

“This news today is very worrying for the economy of north Wales and the many young people who were promised jobs as a result of the Wylfa Newydd project. For the sake of business confidence, and certainty for many people in the affected local communities, it is important that Welsh and UK governments join local government in urgently pressing to overcome the delay.”

“WLGA is working closely with north Wales local authorities, in particular the Isle of Anglesey County Council, to support their efforts in making the case for this project which is of great strategic importance.”
