Anglesey is an island in Wales, off the mainland’s northwest coast. It’s known for its beaches and ancient sites. The island is accessed by the 19th-century Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge, rebuilt in the 20th century. Anglesey boasts over 100 miles of spectacular coastline within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island was once known as the “Granary of Wales” because of the large quantities of barley and oats grown – more than in any other region of Wales and it has also been known as the “Mother of Wales” for its rich farming community that could feed the population of Wales
Our aim is to make the countryside work for everyone. We are proud to live and work in our area and want to protect the special qualities it holds.
The Anglesey Branch actively responds to planning applications and challenges contentious issues which may affect Gwynedd, some of which is in the Snowdonia National Park.
