25.11.15 Restricted use to Sand Bank at Moel y Don?

Consultation on creating a mussel & oyster fishery opposite Y Felinheli

There are proposals to create a fishery to cultivate shellfish on the shores of the Menai Straits which may result in restricting the use of the sandbank at Moel Y Don opposite Y Felinheli.

The Menai Strait Fishery Order Management Association has applied to the Welsh Ministers for a Several Order under the Sea Fisheries (Shellfish) Act 1967 as amended, to confer on them rights of several fisheries for oysters and mussels in 4 areas within the Western part of the Menai Straits.

The order would allow lease holders to cultivate shellfish and restrict use by others.

Area A in the application covers an area on the Anglesey shore opposite Y Felinheli extending from opposite the eastern end of the Marina houses to somewhere opposite Plas Menai, between high and low water levels.

The order would allow lease holders to lay down mussels in the area and it would be illegal for anyone to interfere with them.

This means the sandy beach opposite Y Felinheli could be covered in mussels and anyone venturing into the area could risk prosecution.

The Felinheli Sailing Club has voiced several concerns:

  • The Felinheli Sailing Club uses the area concerned extensively, as the shallower water is particularly suitable as a training area
  • Boats could no longer land on the sandy beach
  • It is a very popular area for fishermen and walkers
  • The Menai Straits is of significant importance from an ecological point of view
  • It is a unique recreational resort drawing many people to the area and contributes significantly to the local economy.

However the scheme could bring economic benefits to the area. Perhaps there is scope for discussion to limit the precise area that would be used, excluding the sand bank?

The order is currently in a consultation stage and Cllr Sian Gwenllian has asked for an extension arguing that no-one knew about the consultation until very recently.

However, we may not get that extension. The closing date is 29 November 2015.

18.11.15 Quay Steps / Refuse Collection

QUAY STEPS: Some of you will have noticed that the Quay steps (leading down from Terfyn Terrace) are now closed after being open for a short time. Councillor Sian Gwenllian is working hard to get them re-opened as this is an important public footpath in Felin. Someone had removed the fences without permission but Gwynedd Council has had to place new ones there because the wall above the steps is DANGEROUS especially in this wet weather. This is a nuisance but it would be awful if someone was injured. The Council is seeking permission to go on the land to build a buttress to make the wall safe so that the path can be re-opened. Sian has been campaigning for this and will continue to do so, so that the steps can be re-opened as soon as possible. They have been closed for far too long already.

REFUSE COLLECTION/RE-CYCLING : The new arrangements have started with the green bin being emptied every 3 weeks and the blue boxes/cart emptied each week.
Not everyone has received the new carts yet but they are on their way. If you are having any difficulties, contact me or send a message to or phone 01766 771000

10.11.15 Councillor's Report November 2015 (No Pylons to Pentir)

I would like to remind everyone to take part in the consultation Gwynedd’s Challenge about the cuts that Gwynedd Council are forced into making because of Government financial policies. You can fill the questionnaire on-line or visit any library for a paper copy. The Council is asking the people of Gwynedd which services they would save and which ones are less important. The Council is seeking the opinions of the public before the councillors have to take very difficult decisions in the spring.

The National Grid is holding a second consultation about the Pylons. All the details on or at the Medical Centre. This could mean more pylons in the Nant Y Garth area.
Meeting by the Grid : Sat, Nov 21, Y Felinheli Memorial Hall 10-4 * Report below
