With the number of developers collapsing, leaving others to pay the price, which is usually a high one, it is to easy for them just to walk away, change the company name and start again, need to make them more liable.

That type of thing happens too often and the directors seem to get away with it under company law.
I wonder who exactly owns the freehold on this valuable site

Port bosses want to build 600m tidal lagoon off the coast of North Wales
Under the proposal the lagoon wall would stretch from the breakwater at Mostyn to Point of Ayr in Flintshire

Plans have been unveiled for a 590 million tidal lagoon capable of providing low carbon electricity to power 82,000 homes in North Wales.

Building the 6.7 kilometre long lagoon, stretching from the breakwater at Mostyn to Point of Ayr in Flintshire, would create 300 jobs during the construction phase and up to 30 high-skilled permanent posts.

Its being developed by Mostyn SeaPower Ltd, a subsidiary of the busy Port of Mostyn, who say it will provide a massive boost for the regional economy and would play a key role in helping North Wales to recover from the economic downturn caused by the Covid-19 crisis.

Previous schemes for a giant 7bn tidal lagoon on the North Wales coast have not progressed and the wider sector was hit by a snub from UK Government when it failed to back the 1.3bn Swansea Tidal Lagoon in 2018.

But the developer of this new scheme believes the more modest ambitious of this project could get the go ahead and also inspire further tidal power projects along the North Wales coast.

A 60m leisure resort, which would include a water park, is being planned for north Wales. ref BBC

Maybrook Investments wants to develop the old Ferodo factory site and nearby Plas Brereton on the banks of the Menai Strait, near Caernarfon.

The plans would also include more than 250 holiday lodges and apartments, shops, restaurants and bars, creating 80 jobs.
Maybrook has applied to Gwynedd council for planning permission.
The company said it could start work immediately if this was granted.

It also plans to renovate part of the old Ferodo factory into commercial units, which would have enough space for 600 people to work on site.

Red Arrows practise display over Anglesey - when you'll catch it
RAF Valley will play host to 'out of season practise' later this week.

The Red Arrows are coming to Anglesey for a practise session this week.
The Covid-19 pandemic has left the aerial display team largely grounded

A Notice to Airmen (Notam) published in the past few days states "The Red Arrows will conduct flying display rehearsals at Royal Air Force Valley, Anglesey on 13th August 2020.

The document notes between 9am and 4pm that day no aircraft is to fly below 8,100 feet within a six nautical mile circle centred on the airbase. But the display is expected to take place between 12.45pm and 1.30pm.

Based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire the team was formed in late 1964 as an all-RAF team, replacing a number of unofficial teams that had been sponsored by RAF commands.        You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Re: North Wales News.... Wind farm Colwyn Bay and Llanfairfechan.
« Reply #88 on: August 21, 2020, 11:24:18 AM »
Plans to create one of the biggest offshore wind farms in the world off the north Wales coast have got a step closer despite fears over the impact on scenery.

About 100 turbines could be built as part of plans for Awel y Mr, between Colwyn Bay and Llanfairfechan.

Campaigners who fought against the nearby Gwynt y Mr farm said the turbines were "an eyesore".

RWE Renewables said the wind farm would create "green clean renewable energy".

Back in 2015, the same developers opened one of the UK's largest offshore wind farms, Gwynt y Mr, which has 160 turbines, off the coast of Llandudno, Conwy.

Now they have been granted rights by the Crown Estate for the sea bed between Colwyn Bay and Llanfairfechan.

Furloughed workers within the arts have been temporarily employed on I'm a Celebrity.

The new series will be filmed in Abergele and is set to provide jobs for the local community.
This includes a recent recruitment of experienced production runners within the area by ITV.

They aren't the only local professionals involved with the upcoming TV project though.
North Wales Live can exclusively reveal that furloughed theatre staff are also being used.

Technicians from Venue Cymru and Theatr Colwyn began working on the production this month.
Eight employees joined the show last Monday (September 14) along with an additional two yesterday.

The staff, all of whom had been furloughed, are now expected to remain on set for another 10 days.
They will be paid by ITV and are currently assisting crew on location at Gwrych Castle.

Those involved account for 50 percent of the permanent staff within Venue Cymru's tech department.
And it's hoped that ITV will extend their contracts in the coming weeks to cover production itself.
It could also offer roles on the series to additional furloughed theatre staff during filming of the show.

This may include more technicians as well as those in other departments, such as in catering.
