Please find below information that we hope will benefit businesses in Gwynedd that has been received from the Welsh Government. The information is regarding business support and also guidance for accommodation operators.

Further details about support from the Welsh Government’s new £500m Economic Resilience Fund were published on April 10th 2020. Economy Minister, Ken Skates, released further information about the fund, including eligibility criteria for businesses and charities to enable them to prepare to apply. The fund will provide additional financial support during the coronavirus pandemic and will help organisations to manage cash flow pressures. It will help to address gaps not met by schemes already announced by the UK Government, Welsh Government and Development Bank of Wales. Here is a link to the full statement and further information:

Guidance to holiday accommodation owners

As you are aware, we have been circulating information regarding the closure of holiday accommodation businesses during this period, and that it is an offence for accommodation owners not to comply with these regulations, as well as being an offence for anyone to obstruct accommodation owners from carrying out their duties. We are grateful to the accommodation providers in Gwynedd for your co-operation in this matter. However, Welsh Ministers or Local Authorities can make a request for accommodation to open for a specific purpose, which could include accommodating key workers, those who have been displaced or are homeless or providing accommodation for health patients. If you are willing to receive such requests from the Council please let us know via email or phone: contact details below. Click here for more information.
