A joint venture involving Stena Line for a £100 million redevelopment of Holyhead Marina in Anglesey has won approval in the face of strong local objections.
Local councillors granted outline planning permission for a 500-berth marina, which will include a hotel, maritime museum, visitor centre and more than 350 houses.
Around 700 jobs are expected to be created as a result of the development.
The plan was adapted in response to initial complaints from locals about loss of views, yet still faced local opposition.
Stena Line area director Michael McGrath said: "The proposed marina development at Holyhead is not only an important facility for the people of Holyhead and surrounding area but it also represents a significant opportunity to help drive future economic prosperity across the region with the provision of one of the most innovative mixed-use marinas in the UK."
