Anglesey Council 'capable of managing own affairs'

The Chief Executive of Anglesey Council has welcomed the announcement that the Welsh Government will hand control back to councillors.

Five commissioners were appointed to turn around the failing authority in 2011.

Since democratic control was restored in October 2012, Anglesey has clearly demonstrated an appetite and commitment to change.

I'm confident that the authority is now more than capable of managing its own affairs. We're already making good progress in delivering service improvements and have responded positively to the guidance provided by Commissioners and our regulators.

The authority now has an ambitious transformation programme in place, which will provide a catalyst for significant service improvements on behalf of people of Anglesey.

– Richard Parry Jones, Anglesey Chief Executive
