1.    PRAYER

2.    MINUTES

      The Chairman signed the minutes of the last meeting of the Council held on 11
      December, 2003 as a true record.

3.    THE CHAIRMAN'S ANNOUNCEMENTS

(a)   The Chairman referred to the passing away of the following persons:-
     Councillor R Gwynfor Hughes who had represented the residents of Porthmadog
      on several councils, and who had been a member of Gwynedd Council since its
      inception in 1996. He was a friendly and unassuming man, who had served his
      community all his life. He was highly respected, and had given his all to his local
      community. The leaders of the political groups paid tribute to the late member.
     The father of Councillor John Wyn Williams
     The mother of Councillor Derek Hainge
     The mother of Alwyn Evans Jones, Head of Human Resources
     Dr Cyril Parry former member of Gwynedd County Council
     Dafydd Glyn Owen, Building Control Officer with the former Arfon Borough Council.
     Islwyn Ffowc Elis one of Wales' foremost authors.
     Huw Hywel Thomas, Llanfairfechan, who had been Vice Chairman of the former
      Gwynedd County Council.

      Sympathy was extended to the families, and all others who had lost dear ones
      recently, and all present stood in silent tribute as a mark of respect.

      Reference was also made to the death of John Charles, the world famous
      footballer from Swansea.

(b)   A speedy recovery was wished to Councillors Caerwyn Roberts and Tony Eccles
      who were absent due to indisposition, also to Councillors D Bryan Evans and
      Gwen Griffiths who were receiving treatment in hospital.

(c)   Congratulations were extended to the following:-

     Anthony V Jones, Head of the Revenue Officers, upon receiving the “MBE” for his
      work with the Territorial Army.
     Leanne Bailey – Healthy Living Centre, Maesgeirchen, Bangor on succeeding in
      the NVQ level 4 examination, and it was noted that very few had succeeded in
      gaining this qualification in Gwynedd.
     Councillor Trevor Edwards upon becoming a gradfather again.
     All officers who had succeeded in gaining qualifications recently.
     The Environment Directorate on receiving a Transport Grant of £9,897,000 from
      the Assembly, which was among the highest sum of its kind to an individual
      Council in Wales. It was noted that most of money would go towards the
      improvement of the A497 Aberech to Llanystumdwy; to projects associated with
      the Snowdonia Green Key and on the development of integrated transport at
      Bangor Railway Station.

(ch) Gratitude was extended to all for their co-operation as the result of re-arrangement
     of the date of the Council and other meetings due to the severe weather.

      The Highways and Municipal Services workforce were thanked for their sterling
      service during the recent severe weather. It was noted that the close co-operation
      between the two sections had ensured an effective service during the bad weather.

      Thanks were also tendered to the Social Services home care workers for their
      commitment and hard work in caring fot the elderly during the same period.

(d)   It was noted that it was it was National Book Day, and as part of the celebrations,
      the Library Service was offering an opportunity for the residents of Gwynedd to
      vote for their favourite Welsh book. The novel "Cysgod y Cryman” by Islwyn Ffowc
      Ellis had gained the most votes, and a list of the 10 favourite books was distributed
        to members; it was noted that it was good to see that most of the authors were
        from Gwynedd, which reflected the literary wealth of our area.

4.      CORRESPONDENCE, COMMUNICATIONS OR OTHER BUSINESS

        Consideration was given to a request from the Peace and Justice Centre in
        Wrexham, calling upon the elected representatives of communities to sign a
        Declaration in favour of a Nuclear-Free World.

        RESOLVED to authorise the Chairman of the Council to sign the Declaration
        in favour of a Nuclear-Free World, on behalf of members.

5.      URGENT MATTERS

        The urgent motion by Councillor Richard Parry Hughes regarding the Chancellor's
        proposal to allow a rate reduction on second homes, had not been included on the
        original agenda, but the Chairman agreed that it be included under Section
        100(4)(b), Local Government Act 1972, due to the fact that there was a need to
        respond with observations by the end of the week.

7.      QUESTIONS

        Councillor Arthur Wyn Rowlands

        “A number of matters regarding ELWa have appeared in the press recently, and as
        one of the Governors of Ysgol Dyffryn Ogwen, I am concerned. One specific
        aspect that worries me is ELWa's effect on post-16 education in Gwynedd, and in
        my ward specifically. Are we:

      i. Aware of ELWa's plans to fund schools for the future in 2005-2006
     ii. Aware of any curricular activities by ELWa to promote the post-16 discussion?

        Councillor Penri Jones

        “I thank the councillor for his question.

        On a county level, three meetings have been held with representatives from ELWa
        to discuss specific matters involving funding the post-16 provision in schools.
        However, a number of questions remain about ELWa's funding plans and this
        uncertainty hampers curricular planning. The proposal to provide schools with
        details of ELWa's funding levels was noted, but the details are still awaited.

        ELWa places emphasis and priority on securing a suitable and appropriate
        provision for individual pupils. In general, there is a lack of understanding about
        ELWa's curricular plans, which leads to uncertaintly in the schools sector,
        especially in the smaller schools such as Ysgol Dyffryn Ogwen. There is concern
        that funding matters will influence what is proposed rather than a response to a co-
        ordinated curricular plan."

        Councillor Arthur Wyn Rowlands
“Are we certain that the bilingual provision will receive appropriate attention in the
ELWa plans?”

Councillor Penri Jones

“From a positive viewpoint, ELWa's funding formula gives attention to bilingual
provision. However, there are concerns that not enough attention has been given
to ensuring bilingual provision of quality, especially in the most rural areas of
Gwynedd. This should be a central part of the curricular planning.


Councillor Dewi Llewelyn (on behalf of Councillor John Wyn Meredith, in his
absence)

“The Government's plans to close post offices in the Hirael and Ffriddoedd areas
are causing much concern in the Bangor area. What steps can the Council take to
prevent more post offices being closed in the area?"

Councillor Richard Parry Hughes

“I thank the Councillor for his question.

I share the Councillor's concern regarding the Post Company's plans to close the
Hirael and Ffriddoedd branches. At a meeting of the Board in December 2003 a
discussion was held on the matter and it was agreed that a letter be sent to the
Company to oppose the closure of two branches in Bangor. It was also inquired
what plans they had to close more branches in the Gwynedd area. We have now
received a reply from the Company, confirming that they have no plans to close
more branches in the area in the short term, but of course they cannot guarantee
this, especially as the Company is making substantial losses of £15 million per
month nationally at the present time.

The Company has earmarked a sum of money to be invested in those branches
that remain in the area in order to try to increase the use made of the post offices
within the community.

The Council currently supports post offices by granting non-domestic rate relief on
the property and pays the full fee to allow the Council's taxpayers and tenants to
use the post offices to pay Council Tax and Council House rents over the counter.

Also, grants are available to upgrade post office facilities through the Business
Development Package. A Post Offices Development Fund has also been
established by the Assembly in order to maintain branches in disadvantaged areas
as well as rural and remote communities.

To prevent more post offices closing in the area I think the businesses will have to
be more competitive and that the Council should target this sector through the
business support service."

Councillor Dewi Llewelyn
“The Members of Parliament for Caernarfon and Meirionnydd have opposed the
Government's plans to close the urban post offices. Bearing in mind that it is the
communities in the city of Bangor that are suffering as a result of the present
closure, would it not be appropriate for Gwynedd Council to ask the Member of
Parliament for Conwy for her support as well?

Councillor Richard Parry Hughes

Thank you. It would be appropriate to seek her support, but when two votes were
taken on the matter in Parliament recently, Mrs Betty Williams MP for Conwy voted
in favour of closure or re-design of the post system.

Councillor Simon Glyn

“Can the Board give me an assurance that the mooring fees in the Hafan, Pwllheli.
are comparable to the fees charged in other areas along the coast of the British
Isles and further afield, and will these fees rise on the same percentage as Council
Tax for the next financial year?"

Councillor Penri Jones (on behalf of Councilor D Bryan Evans in his
absence)

“I thank the Councillor for his question.

Following a survey of comparative costs in respect of havens/marinas around the
coast of the British Isles, it appears that moorings in the Hafan at Pwllheli are
among the 7 highest. Looking at comparative costs in Wales, the fees in the
Hafan are the second highest, after Conwy Marina.
The mooring charges in Conwy marina are higher than those in the Hafan in
Pwllheli as Conwy offers a free service for keeping boats on land, whilst the
Hafan Pwllheli charges £1.41 per metre extra every week which means that the
costs of keeping a boat in Conwy and Pwllheli are almost equal. Consideration has
been given to offering a similar service free in Pwllheli, but following a detailed
consultation and survey, the Authority does not wish to offer this Service free due
to the existence of local businesses offering the same service.
We confirm that the recommendation is to increase the fees in the Hafan for
2004-05 at an average of 5% which is higher than the Board's recommendation
regarding increasing Council Tax by 3.9%”.

Councillor Simon Glyn

“Bearing in mind therefore that these fees are so high in Wales and in a British
context, are these fees cost-effective as regards maintaining the Hafan and also for
any proposed developments in the Hafan?”

Councillor Penri Jones

“At present, external consultants are carrying out work to enable us to price the
cost of adding moorings at Yr Hafan, Pwllheli. We hope the work will have been
            completed by mid April, and then the officers will be in a position to report to the
            Board on a business plan that will demonstrate what the results would be to the
            Council should the moorings be extended."

8.          MATTERS TO BE DECIDED BY THE COUNCIL

     (x)      In addition to the above programme,
                   For the next 3 years, the sum of £1m per year should be added to the
                      programme in order to avoid leasing as a funding mechanism and to
                      borrow the funds needed to finance the assets in question.

                      included.
  (xi) That the Board receives a report on the use made of the Maintenance and Health
        and Safety budgets in due course, but in the meantime, that a report on the Health
        and Safety work at the Blaenau Ffestiniog and Bangor swimming pools be
        submitted to the next meeting of the Board”

         The Strategic Director – Resources, reported on the draft financial strategy
         approved by the Board in December 2003, the proposed schools budget adopted
         in January 2004, the Council's income and expenditure situation in 2004/05, the
         unclear situation regarding restrictions on the use of capacity building finance to
         care for people in their homes and communities, the great uncertainty that existed
         regarding the 2004/05 budget due to lack of information from the Assembly
         regarding the prospects for 2005/06 and 2006/07 and the need to build protection
         of around £750,000 into the budget because of this.

         It was explained that there were really 3 options open to the Council, namely to
         accept Council Tax of 4.8% in order to meet all the demands, to increase Council
         Tax higher than 4.8% and to increase safeguards for 2005/06 onwards, or less of
         an increase than 4.8% by not meeting the essential bids fully and/or to reduce the
         flexibility for the future. It was emphasised that all the capital and revenue
         requirements identified could be met and flexibility retained for 2005/06 and
         2006/07 by increasing the Council Tax by 4.8% and by using £1,713,250 from
         balances. He noted that the Board's recommendation was to increase by 3.9% by
         reducing flexibility for 2005/06. The reduction was not a matter that caused a great
         deal of concern in the light of the general uncertainty involved in the financial
         situation for 2005/06.

           The Chief Executive reported:-
(i)      that a lengthy process had been followed to reach the proposals before the
         Council, and that it would be difficult to re-open the package.
(ii)     that reducing the level of increase in tax meant a higher risk for the Council and set
         the Management Team a further challenge by putting additional emphasis on the
         introduction of efficiency savings. Whilst accepting the challenge, he emphasised
        that it was likely that there would be difficult proposals and choices arising from the
        new system, and that members would have to decide on difficult options if they
        were going to realise and implement the savings in the future.
(iii)   that there was an additional challenge of creating flexibility to allow more
        expenditure on local needs facing the Council in future.

        A thorough dsicussion ensued on the level of increase in tax. Some members
        agreed with the resolution of the Principal Scrutiny Committee to adhere to the
        recommendation of the Director to increase the Council Tax by 4.8% in order to
        meet all the requirements, and to ensure protection and flexibility for the future.

        Others expressed a desire to set the level of Council Tax on 3.9% rather than
        4.8% and to use more from balances which meant less protectiuon for the future
        and to concentrate the focus on the proposed work of preparing a programme of
        efficiency savings.

        An amendment to the Board's recommendation was proposed, and that an
        increase of 4.8% be made in Council Tax.

        In accordance with procedural regulation 19 (5) a registered vote was requested on
        the amendment, and the voting was as follows:

        For the amendment (3)

(c)    Reported, for information
(i)    That in accordance with a notice of motion received from him under Procedural
       Regulation 13, Councillor D Bryan Evans had proposed as follows in the meeting
       of the Council on 31 July, 2003:-

       "These days, more and more young people reach National standards in
       sport. This, in turn, means that the families of the young people concerned
       have to meet the extremely high costs of staying and travelling to training
       sessions/squads, mainly in South Wales and even beyond, wherever those
       sessions are held. I therefore suggest that this proposal, namely that we set
       up a fund, with the aim of providing financial support towards
       accommodation, travelling costs etc., be considered by the relevant scrutiny
       committee, and that we inquire about the arrangements in neighbouring
       councils."

(ii)   that a report on the proposal had been submitted to the attention of the relevant
       committee, and that the Regeneration and Economy Committee, at its meeting on
       13 November 2003, had resolved to accept the proposal, and in relation to
       providing support for Local Sports Councils, it had been resolved that an officer
       should attend a minimum of two meetings per year and that officers should provide
       support, guidance, advice and updates when invited to meetings in order to
        address specific items. In relation to a Cyfle Fund, it was resolved to consider the
        implementation of a countywide grant aid fund to offer financial assistance to
        individuals, including cultural and leisure activities.

  (c)   Submitted – with the Chairman's permission, the following urgent motion received
        from Councillor Richard Parry Hughes under Procedural Rule 13 together with a
        procedural notice under Procedural Rule 13(12) requesting that the proposal be
        discussed in the Council, without being referred to a committee first:-
        “That Gwynedd Council should write to the Chancellor of the Exchequer
        Gordon Brown calling upon him not to allow income tax relief and relief from
        capital gains tax to those people who invest in second homes as part of their
        “Self Adnministered Private Pension Scheme” (SAPPS) or “Self Investment
        Private Pension Scheme” (SIPPS).

        The Council believes the Chancellor's proposals will inflate house prices
        further out of reach of local people in extensive parts of the County.

        That the Council should send statistical evidence from housing research in
        the County to the attention of the Chancellor."

        RESOLVED
(i)     to approve discussion of the motion at this meeting.
(ii)    to adopt the motion and to authorise the Strategic Director – Environment, to
        take action on the motion.




                      The meeting began at 2.00pm and ended at 4.50pm.
