Setting a direction for the future – Council Plan for 2018-2023

Date: 28/03/2018

Gwynedd councillors have approved the Council’s Plan for the next five years which highlights the authority’s priorities for the period.


The comprehensive plan lays out what the Council currently provides for the people of Gwynedd, the priority improvements the Council wants to achieve between now and 2023, and how it intends to deliver them.


Gwynedd Council Leader, Councillor Dyfrig Siencyn said: “In essence, the Council Plan is a straight-forward document which maps out how we intend to deliver the best possible services for the people of Gwynedd over the coming five years.


“Before agreeing on the way forward, we firstly asked all Gwynedd councillors to tell us which issues they thought needed attention. The matters they raised then formed the basis for a county-wide public consultation.


“We are grateful to every individual and organisation which took the opportunity to have their say. I’m confident that we have managed to include the priorities put forward both by Gwynedd people and councillors in this new



“In particular, I’m pleased that we have been able to include a series of more local priorities alongside the county-wide plans in which span the whole range of services the Council provides.


“Of course, as Gwynedd residents are well aware, there is no way of ignoring the harsh cuts to council budgets imposed on us by the government. Despite this, we remain as determined as ever to keep our focus on delivering modern, high-quality services for the people of Gwynedd as set out in this document.”


A copy of the Council’s Plan for the 2018-2023 period is available on the Gwynedd website: and paper copies are available from the Council’s libraries and Siop Gwynedd one-stop-shops at Caernarfon, Dolgellau and Pwllheli.
