Anglesey residents asked to shape council's priorities

Troubled Anglesey council is to ask residents what they think the local authority's priorities should be.

As part of Local Democracy Week, the council will stage workshops, and says people's ideas could help shape its future targets.

The authority is being run by commissioners, and councillors were stripped of executive powers after years of political in-fighting.

Consultations take place from Monday until 18 October.

The decision to appoint commissioners was made by Local Government Minister Carl Sargeant in March.

A report in August said there had been some progress, but significant changes were still needed in the way the authority is run.

The council will stage a series of "drop-in sessions" for members of the public to submit their ideas on what the authority should focus on in the future.

Residents are being asked for views on economic, social and environmental issues as the council prepares a community strategy for the next few years

Entitled "Our Island, Our Council - Your Contribution", the council says the "drop-in sessions will be more informal than past question time meetings.

Members of the public can drop in anytime during a two hour slot, chat to commissioners, councillors and officers and share their views over a cup of tea".
