Problems in Llanberis: Finding a way forward.

Siân Gwenllian MS has expressed her concern regarding the recent problems in the village of Llanberis, stating that she will 'try to find the best way forward.' 

This week Siân Gwenllian, Member of the Senedd for Arfon, has expressed her concern about problems surrounding litter, illegal camping and so forth in Llanberis.


Siân Gwenllian has been in discussions with Gwynedd Council, Snowdonia National Park, and North Wales Police, and is pleased to inform residents that important steps will be taken by the bodies to allay the concerns of the residents of Llanberis.


Siân Gwenllian MS, who represents the area in the Welsh Parliament, said;


“I am pleased to learn that Gwynedd Council will be employing a security company to ensure responsible behaviour in Parc Padarn.


"I am also pleased to learn that after the wardens’ shifts, the security company will be concentrating on the Glyn area, due to complaints of wild camping and crews gathering during the evenings.”


The local MS said she hoped the company would start operating as soon as possible, and certainly before the Bank Holiday.


Siân Gwenllian MS added;


"As well as the security company, Llanberis will be patrolled by the police, and the Snowdonia National Park wardens, the National Trust, Natural Resources Wales and their volunteers are working day and night to move people forward and clear up the mess.”


“I am also pleased to announce that Gwynedd Council has now arranged for the village street bins to be dealt with twice daily.”


The statement comes after residents of the village expressed genuine concern about a high level of activity in the village, as well as litter and unacceptable behavior.


Commenting on the situation, Siân Gwenllian MS said;


“I understand that it is a worrying time for Llanberis residents, and many feel unsafe in their own village. I know that the authorities thank all the volunteers who have been collecting litter and doing their best to keep the village tidy. "
