“A Quality Environment” for Gwynedd’s communities

Community Gangs

Y Bala, Bangor and Pwllheli are the latest of Gwynedd’s communities to benefit from an “autumnal” spring clean.

Gwynedd Council's Community Gangs have recently been focussing their attention on these areas, undertaking those small jobs that go a long way to improve the look and feel of your community.

This important work is part of the "A Quality Environment" initiative, which is part of the Gwynedd Together Community Strategy that brings a partnership of agencies and local groups together to improve the appearance of Gwynedd’s communities.

Councillor R H Wyn Williams, who leads on the Environment on Gwynedd Council said:

“This popular initiative is delivering visible improvements to local communities throughout the county by blitzing key areas and carrying out those small but important jobs which can make a real difference to the appearance of our towns and villages.

“The Community Gangs are to be congratulated for their hard work – they will revisit these areas on a regular basis to ensure that we deliver a quality environment for all Gwynedd residents.”

The programme of maintenance work undertaken in these particular areas have been jointly agreed by Gwynedd Council and partners including local councils, Chambers of Trade, the Environment Agency, North Wales Police and Keep Wales Tidy.

The Community Gangs’ work has been welcomed by local councils in Y Bala, Bangor and Pwllheli, who were pleased to see that the work had made a big difference to the look and feel of their communities.

The project, which has helped to develop links with community groups, aims to ensure that the hard work inspires more local residents and businesses to take pride in their communities.
