Gwynedd Council Plan 2018-2023

The purpose of the Plan is to set out the Council’s vision and priorities for the period between April 2018 and the end of March 2023. It explains why we are focusing our energy and resources on our priorities, but is also outlines the full breadth of the Council’s work.

 The Plan supports the Council’s vision, namely:

Our vision is for every community in Gwynedd to prosper, and for us as people to...

  • Enjoy happy, healthy and safe lives
  • Receive education of the highest quality which will enable us to do what we want to do
  • Earn a sufficient salary to be able to support ourselves and our families
  • Live in quality homes within our communities
  • Live in a natural Welsh society
  • Live with dignity and independently for as long as possible
  • Take advantage of the beauty of the County’s natural environment

In accordance with the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, these are our well-being objectives.  The Council published its Well-being Statement as part of the 2019/20 review of the Council Plan, and it can be viewed by following the link below:

Gwynedd Council Well-being Statement

The Plan was initially adopted by the Council at its meeting on 8 March 2018, but it is very much a living document which will evolve over time to reflect changing needs and circumstances. We review the Plan yearly to ensure that we as a Council continue to do the things that are important to the people of Gwynedd. 

We have reviewed the Plan in order to explain what we intend to achieve during 2021/22, the fourth year of the five year plan. The ‘Gwynedd Council Plan 2018-2023: 2021/22 Revision’ was adopted by the Council at its meeting on 4 March 2021.
