Have your say on the Yr Wyddfa Partnership Sustainable Parking and Transport Strategy Consultation

08 February 2021

Yr Wyddfa Partnership has developed a draft strategy to implement a sustainable tourism approach to help improve transport and parking across Snowdonia National Park over the coming years.

With support from Transport for Wales, they are asking local communities to shape that strategy and help plan and deliver improvements to the important issues of parking, public transport, walking and cycling routes.

The draft strategy is based on the recommendations made in the Yr Wyddfa and Ogwen Transport and Parking Review by Martin Higgitt Associates carried out in 2020, which sets out potential solutions to the parking, traffic congestion, pollution and noise issues in the most sensitive inner area of Snowdonia National Park.

The report identifies significant roles and requirements for the four gateway communities concerning parking provision, the operation of a shuttle bus network and the development of additional visitor facilities.

The Yr Wyddfa Partnership are carrying out a five-week initial consultation from Monday 1 February to Sunday 7 March 2021. As part of this, they are holding an online workshop (using Zoom) for each of the four gateway communities of Llanberis, Betws-y-Coed, Beddgelert and Bethesda.

You can complete this form to register for one of the workshops by Tuesday 16 February. It is recommended you access the workshops online and not on a mobile phone.

You can also complete this online survey if you would prefer to take part in the consultation in this way. The closing date for comments is 12:59pm, Sunday 7 March 2021.

You can find out more about the proposed strategy on the Snowdonia Partnership website.
