New Council Plan to Shape Healthy, Thriving and Prosperous Anglesey


The new Isle of Anglesey County Council Plan 2017-22 will help shape a healthy, thriving and prosperous Anglesey.

The new strategic document, which sets out the Council’s aims and objectives for the next five years, was approved by the Full Council yesterday (Tuesday, September 26th).

At its core will be the Council’s desire to work with Anglesey residents, communities and partners – at a time of severe financial challenge – to ensure high quality services to improve the quality of life for all and create opportunities for future generations.

Three key objectives have been developed using the views of local people and partners as well as key performance targets for services, political priorities and the Welsh Government’s Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act. They are:

Objective 1:

Ensure that the people of Anglesey can thrive and realise their long-term potential.

Objective 2:

Support vulnerable adults and families to keep them safe, healthy and as independent as possible.

Objective 3:

Work in partnership with our communities to ensure that they can cope effectively with change and developments whilst protecting our natural environment.

The Council Plan will serve as a focal point for future decision-making at all levels; provide a framework to plan and drive forward priorities; shape spending in the face of substantial funding reduction; and monitor progress made.

Council Leader, Councillor Llinos Medi, explained:

“The new Council Plan 2017-22 sets out our aims and objectives for the next five years. It will play a crucial role in moving the Council forward at a time of ever decreasing resources and as we continue to modernize and transform key services.”

“The Council’s vision is to create a sustainable Anglesey where residents can live independently within strong families in healthy, thriving, prosperous and resilient communities.”

Corporate portfolio holder, Cllr Dafydd Rhys Thomas, added:

“Managing performance will also be an integral part of the Council Plan. We will strive to achieve our objectives through partnerships with the people and communities of Anglesey, and align our work with the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act to ensure we improve the lives and opportunities of future generations.”
