GWYNEDD residents are able to share their opinion on how to make their local area a better place to live through a new engagement exercise.

The Council’s Ardal Ni 2035 gives the county’s residents the opportunity to voice their thoughts, with a greater focus on individual communities.

Residents can share their opinions through a questionnaire across a variety of different channels:

- online by visiting haveyoursay.gwynedd.llyw.cymru and selecting their local community from the menu

- by requesting a paper copy from their local library or Siop Gwynedd one-stop-shop

- by calling Galw Gwynedd (01766 771 000) to request a paper copy through the post

- if you require the questionnaire in another language or format e.g. an easy read version, send an email to EichBarn@gwynedd.llyw.cymru

All responses received will help shape the work of prioritising and developing 13 local regeneration plans for Gwynedd's communities over the next 15 years.

The next step will then be to collaborate and jointly develop solutions with local organisations, groups and individuals.

Gwynedd Council Leader, Councillor Dyfrig Siencyn, said: “It’s encouraging to see that so many of the county’s residents have already taken the opportunity to share their opinion on their local area by completing the Ardal Ni questionnaire.

“The aim of 'Ardal Ni 2035' is to place the emphasis squarely on the local.

“By identifying solutions from the ground up, we can build on what's good, tackle what’s not so good and stimulate the local collaboration required to regenerate our communities.

“I encourage anyone who hasn’t had their say yet to spare a few minutes and complete the ‘Ardal Ni 2035’ questionnaire.

"It’s simple, easy to follow, and by completing the questionnaire you will contribute to ensuring that local regeneration is based on the priorities of your community.”

As well as hearing the views of local people on what the regeneration priorities should be for their areas, there is also a short questionnaire open on haveyoursay.gwynedd.llyw.cymru which asks about the housing needs of local people in different parts of the county.

The feedback to this questionnaire will be used by the Council's Housing and Property Department when preparing housing schemes for Gwynedd’s communities.

The questionnaires will be open until the end of June 2022.
