Jobs created by a £12bn nuclear power plant could be lost to England because of a lack of business units, according to a property expert. The Wylfa Newydd plant would employ around 9,000 people, including a variety of suppliers, such as welders and caterers. Anglesey council said it was working to provide more business units. But Wylfa Newydd still needs planning permission and marine licences to go ahead. It is hoped that the Wylfa Newydd development could have a similar impact on the growth of local companies and create jobs, like Tata in Port Talbot and Airbus in Broughton. The nuclear plant is negotiating with the UK government on funding and taxpayers are expected to have a significant stake in this development.
