A recent survey conducted by the Business Support Service showed that occupancy levels remain high, with eight new businesses became Council tenants during the period October 2011 – February 2012. The survey also confirms that the Council responds well to tenant requests with the overall occupier satisfaction at an encouraging 95%, which is an increase of 3% from the previous year.
Cabinet member Councillor John Wynn Jones, 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.”
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 each won £50 from a prize draw for completing the survey. The winners are: Humphreys Signs, Llandygai Industrial Estate; Site Water Services, Pantdreiniog Industrial Estate, Bethesda; and Snowdonia Radio, Glanypwll Enterprise Centre, Blaenau Ffestiniog.
