Calls for Menai Bridge Closure Compensation

9 Mar 2023

At an Isle of Anglesey Council meeting today, Welsh Liberal Democrat Cllr Aled Morris Jones, who also serves as Leader of the Opposition on Angleseycalled for the Council to make the case to the Labour-Plaid Cymru Partnership in Cardiff Bay that many business owners had suffered a loss of trade putting the future of their firms at risk and deserved compensation.

But the Chair ruled on advice that the amendment could not be discussed.

Commenting Cllr Morris Jones said:

“Many people have lost business because of the problems with the bridge closure. They need and deserve compensation.

“Obviously the closure was very bad news for the people directly involved but also bad news for the whole local economy.

“The town of Menai Bridge in particular was adversely affected and deserves compensation from the Welsh Government in Cardiff Bay.”

In addition, Cllr Morris Jones called for twelve months of free parking in Menai Bridge to help revitalise shopping in the town.

“This is something tangible that the County Council can do itself and I am very sorry that we could not debate this amendment which showed our commitment to the town of Menai Bridge.”
