Council Mergers (Saesneg yn unig)
In June 2015, the Minister for Public Services announced Welsh Government’s preference that the 22 County Councils should be merged to form just 8 or 9 councils. This will be a massive change for public services in Wales. There are two options for North Wales either 3 councils or 2 councils. For Conwy residents this means:
The Welsh Government has stated it has not made a final decision, and they will consult on a draft ‘Mergers and Reform’ Bill. This will include further formal consultation on proposals for Local Authority mergers, which we hope as many Conwy residents as possible take part and make their voices heard.
