Another step forward for the Science Park

The Menai Science Park will take another step forward this week as archaeology work gets underway. The Archaeology work will form a part of the planning application to be submitted in the autumn. The project will see cutting edge facilities for businesses and researchers established on the outskirts of Gaerwen and aims to open in 2017.

Plans are currently moving ahead positively with several companies and ventures showing interest in being based on the Park with the aim of creating and supporting high quality employment opportunities in the area.

The Menai Science Park will house a range of enterprises looking to grow in scientific sectors. The Park will benefit from investments in areas such as energy, environmental services and clean technology, but projects in other sectors will also be welcome. The aim is to create and support skilled and well paid employment in the area.

Outreach programmes will be run to encourage children and young people into science subjects and to demonstrate the availability of science based jobs in the region.

"It’s great to see work starting on the project” said Ieuan Wyn Jones, the Project Director, “the archaeological work will form a part of our planning application; a significant step forward for us.

The project team are eager to share information about the development and will be attending the Anglesey Show in August.
