that so many people attend this important event. As a Council one of our key
priorities is to ensure that Gwynedd residents can find suitable and affordable
homes in their local communities.
“Events like these are critical and as a Council we
realise that by working with partners, local groups and local communities we
can provide the best opportunities for housing across the county.
“Following the success of the event we hope to
organise another event like this in the future in the Bangor area.”
At the end of the event
