We are a group of Caernarfon residents and concerned supporters who wish to protect the community and its environment from the harmful impacts of two developments planned by Jones Brothers’ Ltd in and around the former Seiont brickworks site, Caernarfon.

Jones Brothers (Civil Engineering) Co Ltd and their subsidiary, Seiont Ltd are applying for permission to install a ten engine, 20MW gas-fired electricity generating ‘peaking plant’ and a concrete crushing plant with associated road changes for continuous use by an estimated 120 HGV lorries a day. These two very harmful operations are planned to be next to each other on the Seiont Quarry site, which is surrounded by nearby residential properties, housing estates, a hospital and recreation facilities on one side, and the River Seiont and ancient natural woodland on the other.

The full application details can be found here:
