Over 100 people attended a public meeting organised by Ynys Môn AM Rhun ap Iorwerth to discuss the proposals for a Zorbing Centre between Llanfairpwll and Menai Bridge.
Local councillors and representatives from developers Zorb Snowdonia were also present at the packed meeting held at Carreg Bran Hotel last night.
Following the meeting, Rhun ap Iorwerth AM said:
“So many people had contacted me beforehand, I thought it would be a useful exercise to get everyone at one meeting, be they for or against, and give them the opportunity to have their say in a public forum. I was delighted that representatives of the company came along as well.”
The local AM has said that he will now write to the County Council with a summary of the points raised both at the meeting and in direct correspondence with him. He added:
“Having heard people’s views tonight, it’s clear that people in this part of Anglesey don’t want this zorb development to be at this iconic location on the banks of the Menai. While being supportive of these young people coming forward with the idea, the clear message tonight was they should rethink and place it elsewhere.”
