Gwynedd Challenge

Gwynedd Challenge public consultation survey results

Between September and December 2015, the Council started on the process of identifying possible service cuts by carrying out a comprehensive Gwynedd-wide public consultation in which residents, businesses and organisations were invited to have their say on the ‘long list’ of 118 possible service cut options that are currently under consideration.

Over the course of the public consultation, over 2,100 questionnaire responses were received from Gwynedd residents, businesses and organisations and over 615 members of the public attended a series of 32 public forums or drop in sessions.

Next steps

The results of the Gwynedd Challenge public consultation have been considered in detail by all 75 Gwynedd councillors as part of the work of agreeing to a finalised list of cuts that will be implemented from April 2016 onwards.

A report was presented to the Council Cabinet on 16 February (item 14b).

Recommendations were then presented to a meeting of the full Council on 3 March at which all 75 Councillors had to agree to a list of services to cut as part of the process of agreeing the Council’s financial strategy for 2016/17.
