Welcome to Holyhead Forward 

Welcome to the Holyhead Forward Website! The site aims to provide you with information about the regeneration of Holyhead, telling you about plans and projects to improve the town, and about events. 

We aim to improve the website further over time. We hope that you will find the site useful and informative and will revisit soon.


Holyhead Forward is an ambitious ten-year regeneration vision for the town of Holyhead, in North-West Wales, which is part of the county of Anglesey.

The initiative was launched in 2003 and met with clear public support for major improvements to be made to Holyhead. A three-day public exhibition was attended by 2,000 people.

Many regeneration projects are now underway, but much remains to be done. There is no doubt that Holyhead is changing. This website has been created to help inform local residents and businesses about this major regeneration programme and should also be of interest to potential investors, visitors and researchers.

This website was originally created in 2003 as part of the Holyhead Town Centre Regeneration Scheme, which was jointly funded by the EU, Welsh Assembly and County Council.

The website is managed by the County Council's Economic Development Unit, and it is now funded under the BRAND town marketing project by the EU, Welsh Assembly, County Council, and Town Council.

Holyhead Rebranding Project

A special rebranding and marketing plan for Holyhead and Holy Island has been created. The project formed part of a Welsh-Irish partnership with the towns Rhyl, Dun Laoghaire, and Athy.  Whilst the project has now ended, the project officer Elizabeth White remains in post in a Holyhead regeneration role.

It was 75% funded under the EU Ireland-Wales Interreg Programme, with match funding from the Welsh Assembly Government, Anglesey County Council, and Holyhead Town Council. Holy Island has been identified as a key asset for attracting tourists and the project will aim to better integrate Holyhead and Holy Island.
