I AM writing to thank all those who attended the public meeting I organised with National Grid in Llangefni on Friday, February 5. The number of constituents who attended the meeting is a testament to the strong feeling on the island about Grid's pylon plans. We heard the very real concerns of constituents from across the island and I want to reiterate my support to them. At the meeting, I said I would write to the energy regulator, Ofgem, to call for a meeting to discuss Grid's assertion that they needed to demonstrate cost- effectiveness of their proposals.
I have done this and I will keep all interested constituents updated on this meeting's outcome. I have also written to National Grid to reinforce the points made at the meeting. In addition, I have asked them to provide a socio-economic impact study that was called for by a number of those present. I am glad that Grid agreed to my invite to an open meeting with the Anglesey public.
They have clearly heard the concerns of residents and I intend to maintain this open dialogue as the issue progresses.
