The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is seeking views on its five-year draft Welsh Language Strategy, which sets out how it proposes to promote and facilitate the use of the Welsh language more widely in the National Park.
The draft strategy outlines how the Welsh language links to various areas of the Authority’s work and how it can help satisfy links to the Well-Being of Future Generations Act, the Welsh Language Standards, planning policy and the Welsh language strategies of the Welsh Government and Pembrokeshire County Council.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority Administration and Democratic Services Manager, Janet Evans said;
“The purposes of the National Park include a responsibility to conserve and enhance the area’s cultural heritage, which includes the Welsh language.
“The vision for the strategy is to see the language flourish in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with a target to ensure an increase of 1% of the Park’s population who can speak Welsh by 2022.”
The strategy outlines how the Park Authority intends to reach this target, highlighting five strategic areas: the family, children and young people, the community, the workplace and Welsh language services.
