Future Generations Report 2020 Feedback Conference

As you may know, producing a Future Generations Report is one of my duties under the Well-being of Future Generations Act. I must advise on improvements public bodies should make in order to set and meet well-being objectives. These commitments must work to improve the economy, society, environment and culture of their area most efficiently under that law. The report will also include my findings on the progress to date and recommendations on what should happen in the future. The Act deliberately sets the timing of the report's publication a year before national and local elections so that it can inform public debate and political manifestos.

I see it as a great opportunity to develop a collective manifesto for the future generations of Wales and I have engaged with and drawn on the views of over 4,000 people and organisations across Wales over the term of my office so far, through a combination of events and workshops, the People's Platform, public correspondence and expert contributions into draft chapters and other reports.

With this in mind, and as per our simple change #80, we will be holding two final stakeholder events in Swansea and Llandudno. The purpose of these drop-in sessions will be to feedback and seek your views on the draft findings and recommendations, which have been shaped by what people have told us so far.

To enable us to reach as many people as possible, please forward details of these events to any people or organisations you think this may be of interest to. The format of the event is an all-day drop in session - please join us when you can, for as long as you can.
If you wish to register for our Swansea event, being held on the 18th March, please use this eventbrite link: click here

If you wish to register for our Llandudno event, being held on the 31st March, please use this eventbrite link: click here

You are receiving this email as we have engaged with you previously in our work and believe that this event would be of interest to you. If you wish to remain on our mailing list in the future, please let us know by emailing: contactus@futuregenerations.wales

Community Green Pledges

Conwy and Denbighshire Public Services Board (PSB) are delighted to launch the Community Green Pledges initiative to help community groups and organisations make changes which have a positive impact on the environment. The pledges aim to recognise positive contributions by awarding a bronze, silver, gold or platinum pledge status to proudly display.

One of the Board’s priorities is supporting environmental resilience. The PSB recognise that Climate Change is one of the defining issues of our time and the biggest threat to our well-being - globally and locally.

The Community Green Pledges consist of 5 Green Pledges that community groups and organisations can sign up to reduce their impact on the environment. Each pledge includes suggestions, possible opportunity for funds and guidance on things which can make a difference.

The Chair of the Conwy and Denbighshire PSB, Sian Williams from Natural Resources Wales said, “it’s easy to feel you can’t make a difference to help the environment – but you can. Each of us is an important part of the bigger picture and through our combined efforts, we can make a difference together!”

Who can join?
This scheme is free and open to anyone to join - such as community groups, sports clubs, villages, towns, charities, businesses and social enterprises. Please share this initiative and get in touch and make the pledge to make a difference!

Kind Regards,

Conwy & Denbighshire Public Services Board


First Time Buyer Grants

A new scheme has been set up to help first time buyers of properties in the Snowdonia National Park area of Conwy. Using funding provided by the Park Authority, we are looking to offer a grant to eligible first time buyers who have recently bought or are looking to buy an empty property in the Park area. The grant up to a maximum of £25,000 can be used towards the cost of necessary improvements to bring the property up to an acceptable standard, but cannot be used towards the actual purchase of the property. In order to be eligible for consideration, the buyer must have a local connection to the park area, and priority will be given to applicants who have a connection with the community council area in which the empty property they are looking to purchase is located. In order to be eligible, the empty property must be located within the Park, have been empty for 6 months and fall within Council Tax valuation bands A to C.

As funding is limited, and we have been asked by the Park Authority to prioritise properties within Betws y Coed, Penmachno and Dwygyfylchi, there will be an application window from the date of the scheme launch until 27th April 2020, following which applications will be considered on a first come first served basis, but with priority given in accordance with the above.

On receipt of a grant, the Council will register a charge against the property and this will remain in force for a period of 5 years. Should an applicant move out of, sell or otherwise dispose of the property within the 5 year period, the grant will become repayable in full.

For more information about the scheme, or if you have any queries, please contact Housing Strategy at housingstrategy@conwy.gov.uk or on 01492 574235.
