Case Study

Anglesey Aluminium Metal Limited

​​Decommissioning an aluminium smelting plant into a mixed use commercial and residential development.

Planning and development advice is being provided to Anglesey Aluminium Metals Limited (AAM) on the development opportunities of their 840 acre (approx.) landholding in Holyhead. 

AAM is decommissioning their aluminium smelting plant in Holyhead as a consequence of the review of its energy supply contract. The Northern Planning team at JLL is providing strategic planning advice to establish development proposals which are deliverable in planning and market terms.

Due to the nature of the redevelopment, JLL has developed a close working relationship with Isle of Anglesey County Council, Welsh Government, Department of Energy and Climate Change and other planning consultees on Anglesey regarding future options for the site.

As a result of liaisons with the client, developers and Government bodies, a planning application for the surplus land has been submitted for:

  • ​A leisure-led mixed use development 

  • Workers’ accommodation for the Wylfa nuclear new build construction

  • Open market residential, commercial and industrial and recreational development

  • Major food production facility

  • 299 MW biomass power station with the team seeking a variation of the consent to allow for amended biomass technology.

A Section 36 application under the Electricity Act 1989 was approved by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and a variation to the consent is currently being pursued with the DECC.
