Welcome to Holyhead 2020 

Welcome to the Holyhead 2020 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.

Many regeneration projects are now underway, but much remains to be done. There is no doubt that Holyhead is changing.

Holyhead Vibrant and Viable Places (VVP) Programme

The Holyhead VVP programme is a package of capital investment for Holyhead in the period 2014 - 2017.  The Welsh Government has awarded a total of £8m to be invested in a range of projects designed to improve the area. This funding is used to lever in other public and private funds towards these projects from a range of sources.

The Holyhead VVP programme covers three themes :-

 HOMES - investment in creating new homes, improving existing homes, and making use of empty homes.

 PLACE - investment in the town centre to make it an attractive place for people to live, work or visit.

 PEOPLE - investment in small business growth, job creation, and improving facilities that support local well-being
