Gwynedd's new unitary council will be asked to consider a major new initiative aimed at reviving the economy in a major Welsh speaking area, reported Wales on Sunday (p13).

The region has been hit by the imminent closure of Trawsfynnyd power station in Meirionnyd and the Nobel explosives factory, and local councillors fear that an exodus from the area of Welsh-speaking families will change the character of the area.

Gwilym Roberts, vice-chairman of the new Gwynedd unitary council, represents Blaenau Ffestiniog, one of the areas hardest hit by the closures. He will table proposals `which will seek to involve the existing business community and let local people know exactly what is happening.' The South Gwynedd Partnership, which was set up in response to the announcement of the closures has not succeeded in attracting significant investment.
