There is an opportunity for local people to share their views regarding plans to improve communities in both Gwynedd and Anglesey, and to have their say on how public services can work together to this purpose.

The Gwynedd and Anglesey Public Services Board – which includes the two County Councils, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and Natural Resources Wales as well as other organisations – has drawn up its Draft Well-being Plan 2023-28, which is aimed at improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of the area. There is an opportunity for local residents to have their say on the content by completing a short questionnaire.

The Public Services Board has identified three well-being objectives and wants to know if local people believe that the plans will help improve local communities or not.

There is also an opportunity for people to share their ideas regarding how Board members can work together for the benefit of our communities, in accordance with the demands of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

The draft Well-being Plan has been put together following Well-being Assessments research and in Gwynedd the 'Ardal Ni 2035' engagement exercise, which provided an overview of the needs and aspirations of individuals and local organisations.

Aled Jones-Griffith, Chairman of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Public Services Board, said: "As a Public Services Board, we have a vision to work together to ensure that our communities thrive and prosper in the long term. The aim of the Well-being Plan is to set out how we want to achieve this and make a real difference to the lives of people living in Gwynedd and Anglesey. As public service providers, we will work together to achieve a common ambition for the whole area.

"We have strong and proud communities, with a tradition of cooperation and helping each other. The role of local communities will be central in achieving the objectives set out in the draft Well-being Plan. We are very keen that local opinions are incorporated as we agree on our goals so that we can improve the well-being of our residents.

"All the comments submitted will be taken into account as we decide on the final plan."
