Minister provides update on electoral arrangements in Anglesey

THE Welsh Government’s minister for finance and local government has released a statement regarding final recommendations made for electoral arrangements in the Anglesey region.

Modifications made to the Local Democracy and Boundary Commission’s Final recommendations for electoral arrangements confirmed that, for the Isle of Anglesey County Council, the Commission proposed the single name of Tref Cybi.

The electoral ward will be given the single name of Caergybi.

Rebecca Evans MS said: “On June 16, I wrote to members to set out the current position in respect of the current programme of Electoral Arrangements Reviews. I also set out the process by which I intend to communicate my decisions about each area.

“This included my commitment to provide regular updates to members through written statements. This is the seventh of these updates.

“I wrote to the leader and chief executive of the County of the Isle of Anglesey to confirm the decision to accept the recommendations of the Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales, with modification, in respect of the County of the Isle of Anglesey.

“Work will now be taken forward to implement these decisions by order.”
