On Wednesday, 1 February 2023, the Planning and Orders Committee of Anglesey County Council held a virtual live-streamed meeting.
Following receipt of legal correspondence regarding Penrhos Nature Reserve, it was recommended the Land and Lakes applications be deferred to the next Planning and Orders Committee in March. This will provide the Committee with sufficient time to consider the contents of the letter and to respond accordingly.
When Anglesey County Council publicised the above on Twitter, @anyotherbiz79 responded to the post with, “I hope you have the sense to listen to your residents and say ‘no’ to development! This area contains protected species making what you’ve done saying ‘yes’ in the first place illegal!”
@RobinTosh aka Robin Williams, County Councillor of Aethwy responded, “Permission was granted way before my time as a councillor, so perhaps you’d like to explain what I’ve done that’s illegal? Alternatively, you’re welcome to delete this libellous tweet.”
What Cllr Robin Williams (not the comic actor) failed to realise is Any Other Biz was responding to a Tweet written by Anglesey Council regarding the Planning and Orders Committee, which Any Other Biz pointed out.
Other Twitter users including Brynteg joined in the discussion. @MycamStudio replied, “All eyes are on the council now the public have legal representation & press are keeping watch. All it takes is for planning permission to be denied should these councillors wish to keep our vote at next election.”
No further comment was made by Cllr Robin Williams or Anglesey Council.
In another Tweet posted by Anglesey Council, they promote the
Opportunity to get involved with Anglesey’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team with projects on the island.
Perhaps Anglesey Council should practice what they preach and get involved rather than allow its destruction as they did with Land and Lakes plans to demolish Penrhos Nature Reserve!
