Gwynedd and Anglesey residents are being encouraged to take part in a public consultation on a Draft Well-Being Plan that aims to improve social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being in the area.
The Gwynedd and Anglesey Public Services Board - which brings together a number of local statutory bodies, has divided the whole area into 14 smaller regions for a Local Well-Being Assessment. Detailed research has been carried out in each of the 14 regions in order to understand and learn more about well-being within them.
The draft plan that has been prepared is based on this research, and aims to deliver positive changes in order to ensure the best possible future for communities across the two counties, in line with the expectations of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act.
Ffion Johnstone, from the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, who is chair of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Public Services Board said:
“Our aim as a Public Services Board is to make a real difference to the lives of residents and ensure that public service providers work together to achieve a common ambition for Gwynedd and Anglesey.
“The role of local communities will be fundamental in order to achieve the well-being objectives outlined in the plan. We are therefore very eager that the views of the people of Gwynedd and Anglesey are incorporated as we set the best possible objectives to improve the well-being of our residents.
“We therefore urge residents to make the most of this opportunity to view the draft plan, and to take part in the consultation. All comments will be considered as we decide on the final plan.”
