Local residents are being asked why they like where they live in a consultation being undertaken by the Gwynedd and Môn Public Service Board. They are also being asked what’s not so good and what needs to be improved in the area.
A second round of drop-in sessions are to be held on Anglesey this week, where locals can contribute to the consultation which aims to help public service providers plan for the future. Drop-in events have already been held in Tywyn, Dolgellau and Dinas Mawddwy. As well as calling by at one of the sessions to talk to officers there is also an on-line questionnaire at http://www.LlesiantGwyneddaMon.org/en/. for people can have their say. Over 500 have already expressed their views on-line.
The Gwynedd and Môn Public Service Board was formed recently in response to the Welsh Government’s new Well-being and Future Generations Act. It is a partnership which includes the local authorities, the fire and rescue service, the health service and Natural Resources Wales.
Under the act, public services are expected to work together to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of communities across Wales.
Ffion Johnstone, Chair of the Gwynedd and Môn Public Service Board said: “I would encourage residents to make the most of this opportunity to contribute to the consultation – it will give us a clearer picture of what’s important to people in the area and what they would like to see improved. It’s a real chance for people to influence the future of public services.”
Informal drop-in sessions will be held at the following locations:
||Blaenau Ffestiniog: Tan y Maen, Heol yr Eglwys
||Trawsfynydd: Public Hall
||Llanuwchllyn: The Old Surgery
||Y Bala: Neuadd Buddug
The consultation period runs until the 31 December 2016. The feedback collected from the different communities will give the Board a clearer picture of local communities, their priorities and how partners can work together to plan public services.
