Help to improve your local area

 Press release on behalf of the Gwynedd and Môn Public Services Board.

 A series of drop in meetings are to be held over the coming weeks where members of the public will have an opportunity to share their thoughts and views on their local communities and what they would like to see improved for the future.

 The events are being organised by the Gwynedd and Môn Public Service Board - a body formed recently in response to the Welsh Government’s new Well-being and Future Generations Act.

 Under the act, public services must work together to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of local communities. The first step in Gwynedd and Anglesey will be to ask local people for their feedback on how they see their local area at the moment and how they believe things can be improved.
