Providing the best resources so that local businesses can thrive is top of the agenda for Gwynedd Council, and a recent survey of the business community has shown that the Council’s business tenants are very happy with the service provided.
Gwynedd Council’s Economy and Community Department surveyed all businesses which lease Council-owned industrial units. The results showed overall satisfaction is very high, that occupancy levels remain high and that the Council responds well to tenant requests.
Councillor Dewi Lewis, Gwynedd Council’s Economy and Community Portfolio Leader said:
“As a Council, we are committed to ensuring that local businesses have the best platform to work, grow and thrive. This is why it is essential that we provide industrial units of the highest order.
“The climate over recent years has been very challenging for the whole business sector, so it’s very encouraging to see that there is such a high intake of tenancies and that customer satisfaction is high.
“Local businesses are the backbone of the Gwynedd economy, and I am confident that by working together we can see them develop.”
Gwynedd Council has 86 industrial units and 52 units within enterprise centres. Of these, 93% were occupied between April 2010 and March 2011, with overall occupier satisfaction at an encouraging 92%.
The survey results show that businesses are satisfied with various aspects of the Council’s services at the industrial and enterprise units including location, building quality, maintenance and rental agreements.
Three businesses have each won £50 from a prize draw for completing the survey. The winners are: De Gwynedd Domestic Abuse Service , Glanypwll
Workshops, Blaenau Ffestiniog; Menter a Busnes, Canolfan Menter Intec, Parc Menai, Bangor; a Origins, Tanycastell Industrial Estate, Harlech.
Congratulations to them.
