The way social housing in Gwynedd is allocated is about to change to put more emphasis on prioritising local people who are in need of housing.

We’ll be writing to you everyone on the register in a few weeks’ time to explain more about how this will effect them.

In the meantime an information leaflet is attached which answers frequently asked questions. You can also find information on our website.

Damage to the bus shelters10/04/2019 - Damage to the bus shelters

Some of the bus shelters around the village have been vandalised over time, so the community Council though that it would be a great idea to do a refurb to them with the children’s art work from the school as a trail run. The first bus stop we focused on was the bus stop near the Church. Once the at work went up it was looking great but after only a few hours it had been vandalised! How sad.

Please contact the police on 101 and give the case number X048273 should you have any information.

The third crew went along the Lon Las towards Silo and back along the road. This group had collected rubbish on their way down to the hall before arriving along Caernarfon Road.
The final crew cleared around Rowen field and the nearby lanes.

There are many places with a lot of litter found.
Behind the bus stop near the church.
