Councillor Dyfrig Siencyn, leader of Plaid Cymru Gwynedd, said: “There has been a lot of hard work and discussions on going behind the scenes for some months now to discuss a positive way forward with the ongoing problems facing local people, businesses, workers and visitors in relation to Llanbedr’s road network issues in Meirionnydd, since the Welsh Government's announcement to halt the investment for a new road infrastructure in the village (1 November 2021).
Councillor Dyfrig Siencyn was re-elected Leader of the Plaid Cymru Gwynedd Councillors' Group at a meeting in Porthmadog last night (8 May 2022). Dyfrig Siencyn, County Councilor for the Dolgellau North Ward, has been successful in his role as Group Leader and Leader of Cyngor Gwynedd for the past five years.
Plaid Cymru Gwynedd has secured a clear majority and a firm mandate from Gwynedd's communities to lead the county council over the next five years. The highest ever percentage of Plaid Cymru councillors in Gwynedd has been elected since its formation in 1996, at 64% of all councillors.
A strong team of 51 Plaid Cymru Gwynedd candidates have been presented to stand in Gwynedd Council’s Election on 5 of May. Nearly half (22) are female candidates. Following the Boundary Commission’s ward reforms, 69 seats are up for grabs in Gwynedd during this current election – down from 75.
