This new page is dedicated to matters about the proposed access road to the airfield and enterprise zone in Llanbedr. It is questionable, at present, to refer to the plan as a bypass, but that's the common and historical habit in the village. It should be noted that the main aim is to provide access to the developments in the airfield where the Welsh Government is concerned, and previous to this, Gwynedd County Council had no plans, or finance, to go ahead with a village bypass. 


Thanks to all who came to show their concern on 2/07/15 regarding the implications of improving access to the Airfield and apologies for the inconclusive results of the meeting.

The evening was initially scheduled as a normal Community Council meeting to include discussions with Gwynedd County Council, but in the light of concerns shown by 10 individual residents, it was decided at short notice to hold an open meeting- but the door to door distribution of leaflets was not the work of the Council, and apologies to those who did not receive notification and to those who were confused by the content of the message.

However, I feel that the meeting was constructive, and intense at times, with hope that this will pave the way to improve what is on offer at present, despite the extensive public consultation which has already taken place in the village. The Community Council always prioritize the well-being of the community in Llanbedr and Ardudwy area without exception, supporting work to keep our young people in the area, the local economy and the success of local businesses. Residents should enjoy a village full of life, and not a place dying without a future.

We intend to invite County Council officers to further discussions regarding the proposed access route to the airfield. We will also invite members of the Welsh Government, Enterprise Zone and Llanbedr Airfield Estate officials, to find out more about plans for the airfield. Hence, we are planning a date in November. By then, 3D images may be available. The Community Council will, of course, advertise the date of the next meeting throughout the village. Information will also be posted on the website Visit the website or email for a copy of the WelTAG report, and I strongly advise you to investigate this source of information.

In the meantime, it is important to arrange an opportunity to re-engage in matters discussed in the meeting of 2/07/15. I therefore believe that all involved will agree to meet again with us in the presence of Liz Saville Roberts MP in the Village Hall at 7.00pm on 24 July 2015. It is imperative that we work as a team , and prepare specific questions to be taken forward to Gwynedd County Council and other government agencies.

Thanks to those who attended the meeting on 24 July 2015. The Community Council will sort and consider the matters raised in due course, and forward them to the relevant officials.



The team effort is already making progress, and new contributors in the community have taken positive  action to increase the flow of information. Hence we now have the updated WelTAG documentation to hand.


British democracy has been a key factor in the making of this community, and elected representatives at national, regional and community levels are an active part of our team. Members of the electorate have contributed to the discussion, and this is a welcomed element, vital to the completion of the most favourable outcome.

November 2015 update:

No recent postings have appeared here because YGC have been slow to respond to enquiries. However, they have now secured funding to carry on with developing the proposed plans. The Community Council will arrange to meet with YGC officers to put forward issues gleaned from previous meetings and residents' responses.


 December 2015 update:

Llanbedr Community Council have discussed possible adjustments to the development of the proposed plan with YGC and Enterprise Zone representatives in the presence of Liz Saville Roberts MP and Dafydd Elis-Thomas AM. As a result, YGC will prepare material for an exhibition event in the new year.


Roadsigns similar to this one could show clearly the road through Llanbedr in comparison with ineffective ones like the Llanfair direction sign.








 January 2016 update:

The engineers and surveyors have returned to take geological samples

March 2016 update:

The date for the consultation meeting with YGC at Llanbedr Village Hall was 17 March 2016 at 14.00-20.00

A496 Llanbedr Access Improvement Scheme – Pre-application consultation

The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Wales) Order 2012 and Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Wales) (Amendment) Order 2016, places a requirement upon the developer to undertake a minimum 28 day consultation period before applying for planning permission for all ‘Major Developments’.  The consultation period for this proposed development will run between the following dates:

Start date: 11 May 2017, End date: 12 Jun 2017

We are preparing to submit an application for planning consent for the A496 Llanbedr Access Improvement scheme. 

To fulfil our obligations under the above acts, we are writing to all affected landowners/occupiers, community consultees and specialist consultees, and also placing public notices on site, to invite feedback on our draft planning application and technical supporting documents. 

The consultation period runs for 33 days – from 11th of May 2017 through until the 12th of June 2017. We will then submit a planning application for the A496 Llanbedr Access Improvement Scheme to the Snowdonia National Park Authority.

Details of the pre-application consultation package are available to view here.

The package includes the following document, reports and drawings


A496_Llanbedr_Access _Improvement_Design_and_Access_Statement




















As well as consulting with those directly impacted we also welcome feedback from the community in general on our proposal to construct a new road to the west of Llanbedr approximately 1.5 km in length.  The new road will diverge from the A496 north of Llanbedr close to the sewage treatment works and will head south to pass to the west of Llanbedr crossing over the Afon Artro and Mochras Road just to the east of the public car park off Mochras Road.  The road will then head roughly southwards to tie into the existing A496 close to Llwyn y Pin.

Any comments will inform our submission of a planning application to the local planning authority.  All comments received within the consultation period will be documented and addressed within a Consultation Report, which will be submitted along with our planning application.

Anyone who wishes to make representations about this proposed development must write to us via email at:

or by post to:

YGC, Council Offices, Shirehall Street, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL55 1SH

by the 12th June 2017.
