Code of conduct

Freedom of information



Cyngor Cymuned Llanbedr is committed to taking positive steps to promote and sustain equal opportunities amongst its Councillors,  staff, and volunteers and in the services it provides and the grants it distributes. The Council seeks to promote this policy in order to achieve this end. The responsibility for implementing this policy will lie with the Clerk. Staff will be employed on the basis of their individual ability and aspiration. All of this will be regardless of; 
(a) Gender
(b) Marital status
(c) Sexual orientation
(d) Colour or race
(e) Ethnic origin and Nationality
(f) Age
(g) Political beliefs
(h) Religion
(i) Disability.

 The Community Council wholeheartedly accepts, therefore, the statuary requirements laid down in the  Sex Discrimination Act 1975 Race Relations Act 1976 Equal pay Act 1970 and the  Disability Discrimination Act 1995 & 2004 which make it unlawful for an employee to discriminate or to treat an individual differently on the grounds of  (a)  to (i) above.



Making a request for information

Make a request online or phone the Clerk providing your name and address and details of the information you want to see.

  • Tel: 01341 241645

We will acknowledge your request as soon as we can. If your request is unclear in any way, we will contact you to discuss your requirements. 

We have up to 20 working days following the date we receive your request. If we need to ask you for clarification of the request, the 20 working day period does not start until that is received.

If we need to extend the timescale (in order to consider certain exemptions), we will inform you of this and indicate by when you should receive a response.

We are not obliged to comply with repeated or vexatious requests nor with requests that exceed the costs limit (see below).

Furthermore, your request will be refused if any of the exemptions contained in the Freedom of Information Act apply. If your request is refused, our reply will identify which exemption we are relying on and why.

If you express a preference for receiving a copy of the information requested, or for being given the opportunity to inspect records containing the information, we will seek to accommodate your request as long as reasonably practicable.

When making your request for information, please identify how you would like to receive the information.

The majority of requests will be handled without charge.

However, if it is likely to take more than 2.5 days to find, sort and edit material (£450, calculated at  £25 an hour) then we need not comply with the request.

In such circumstances, we will contact you to discuss your request and ask you to modify it e.g. by asking for less information. This is aimed at bringing your request beneath the fees threshold. If you are unable to do this we may not be able to answer your request.

If you are unhappy with the response, you should contact the individual who has been named in your reply. He/she will conduct an internal review by reconsidering your request and will either uphold, reject or partly uphold the original decision.

If you are dissatisfied with the results of the internal review you may appeal to the Information Commissioner. One of the Commissioner's officers will then be assigned to deal with your case.


You can see any type of information held by the Council, although there are  exemptions for information of a confidential or sensitive nature.


Harlech & Ardudwy Leisure | Hamdden has suggested that local Community Councils should increase their Community Tax precept again to pay for losses at the Harlech swimming pool. This will be an agreement to increase the tax annually for the next five years. Send your comments immediately to if you are concerned about this.


 The Community Council has decided to keep the precept for 2019 unchanged from the previous year's amount.

Ar y cais cynllunio arfaethedig mae gan y Cyngor Cymuned hawl i wneud sylwadau. Dyma yw rheolau cynllunio

Llanbedr Community Council is a Statutory Consultee when applications for planning permission are made for developments in the Community Council area that require approval from the Snowdonia National Park Authority (the local planning authority for Llanbedr).  The Community Council can only object to applications or make specific recommendations based on the planning issues and principles that are raised by the particular application.  This is how the law of planning development control is framed.

Therefore this is the statement that will be made to the planning authority  on behalf of the Community Council–

The Community Council have no objection to this proposed application.  The use of the chapel building as a mosque is not relevant to our comments as no change of use from the current use as a place of worship is proposed.  We do have significant concerns about parking issues, but understand that this may not be a relevant planning issue.  Parking on the main road in Llanbedr already leads to serious congestion at peak times and having any extra parking will make matters worse.  We would also ask that the proposed signage includes the Welsh ‘Mosg a chanolfan fyfyrdod’ as well as ‘Mosque and Meditation Centre’ and ‘Jamia Almaarif’.


Other Matters regarding this application:

Some strong concerns have been raised in the Community regarding this application, and some of the comments made on social media have been a matter of concern.  Strong views for and against this development have been made.    One member of the community has raised an issue whether this proposal is a part of the ‘Nation of Sanctuary – Refugee and Asylum Seeker Plan’ published in January 2019 by the Welsh Government.  Annwen Hughes our County Councillor is not aware of any such plans.  The Clerk of Community Council will seek more information regarding this.

It was considered whether it would be appropriate to find more information about the applicants intended use of buildings and to publish this information with these minutes on the Community Council webpage on the website.  However, it was decided that the Community Council response and associated brief minutes should be published as soon as possible and that further enquiries would be made to the applicant for further information for further consideration at a later date

The calls made by some local people for an open meeting to be held were discussed and it was decided that the community council will not be able to organise or facilitate such a meeting because:

  • Most of the opinions expressed are not relevant to the planning application
  • The community council does not have the resources or expertise to stage a public meeting of this type.

It was stated that it is known that the proposed new users of the chapel will use it for Sufi Islamic worship and meditation.   The Chairman has spoken briefly to the applicant and he understood that the plan was for groups of members from specific mosques where the Sufi philosophy is followed to visit the new Mosque to meditate and worship and then return home.  The visitors would return home on the same day if they lived close enough or they would stay in local holiday accommodation. The applicant also stated that she thought that many of the visitors would travel in minibuses and by train.

It was decided to advise members of the public to contact National Park Authority in order to view these proposed plans or if they have any concerns or comments to make about the planning application, (closing date before 4.4.19)

The application may be viewed by selecting planning on the home page, choose planning applications from the menu and place the ref planning number in the column, followed by Llanbedr.(NP5/62/LB129A or follow the link

The Company involved in this aplication was set up in July 2018 and has 3 directors.  More information is available on the Company House website.
