The Holyhead Waterfront project would include a 500-berth marina, restaurants, shops, more then 200 waterfront houses and a hotel.

A spokesman for developer Conygar Stenaline confirmed furthing details, including a reduction in the proposed waterfront home’s height, as recommended by Anglesey Council.

He added: “This was in response to requests for further clarification from statutory and internal consultees and also from members of the public in relation to design issues.

Newry Beach residents have voiced concerns over Holyhead breakwater, wildlife, and doubts on how many peeople from the area would be employed at the development.

Friends of Newry Beach have collected more than 4,000 signatures and 2,000 letter opposing the development.
