Imagine A Road Across This Lovely Beach at Rhoscolyn
Do I Really Need A Road To My Second Home?  Or Is It An Indulgence That The People Of Anglesey Should Pay For?

Dear Wil


Please can you use your database in Wales to inform the local people and try and get a petition together to support the following:


  • There is a beautiful beach in Rhoscolyn, Anglesey which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

  • There are about 7 holiday homes owned by some very wealthy individuals at the far end of the beach.

  • The current access to these properties is across the beach although there is an access road behind the beach, privately owned by one of the other properties.

  • The owners of these holiday homes now wish to have a road built across the sand to enable them to have easier access at all states of the tide.

  • Most of these homes are only occupied for a few weeks of the year and the owners were fully aware when they bought or built them of the state of access.

  • There is now a dispute with the local council about the building of such a road, as a result of which a Public Inquiry is to be held at Holyhead Town Hall on the 22nd November 2011.

  • The enquiry is to be chaired by a QC at great expense to the rate payers of Anglesey.

  • At high tide the beach is underwater - this proposed road will be continually eroded and will cost hundreds of thousands of Anglesey Council Tax Payer pounds to maintain.

  • Most of all it will be a complete eyesore and will ruin the beautiful landscape and be a potential hazard to other beach users.

  • We wish to inform local people so that they can have the opportunity to object to such a desecration of the landscape.

    Do get in touch or call the Planning Department of Anglesey County Council to voice your objections (01248 750057)

    There are not 7 but 12 homes involved.

    The majority of owners are strongly opposed to the highway and do not wish for any change.

    Two owners have caused this inquiry by maintaining pressure against Ynys Mon and can together with those against be identified by inspection of submissions to the inquiry which are publicly available documents.

    Contemptuous Disregard at Rhoscolyn
    by: Wil

    Annwyl Sian

    I know this beach well, as I know you do.

    I take a pragmatic approach to the proposal by these individuals who live elsewhere. It is a proposal that offends people on many levels.

    In a time of austerity it is an indulgence that the people of Anglesey cannot afford, when Anglesey is already suffering real cuts - in Social Services Care, for instance.

    Therefore, to indulge in inappropriate ambitions that, in essence, steal public money for a Public Inquiry is the demonstration of an appalling disregard for an Island these people clearly love.

    I'll probably get into trouble over this next bit; however, here we go anyway.

    This proposed mis-use of Anglesey public money - especially in times of austerity by people who probably don't live in Wales - has caused a broader reaction in the past.

    Welsh politics has always been complex and deeply emotional. Like all countries we have our own special breed of idiots and reactionaries.

    The above is a statement only. Take it as you will. It is merely offered as an observation based on a Welsh past.

    May I recommend that those of you who support Sian's call to save Rhoscolyn Beach should Call the Planning Department of Anglesey County Council on (01248) 750057.

    Have your objections recorded. Inundate them with your objections.

    Wil
