The Welsh Language in Blaenau Gwent

The Welsh Language Standards

We as a Council are fully committed to supporting, encouraging and developing the Welsh Language within the County.  We will endeavour to treat the Welsh and English languages on the basis of equality at all times.

Our current Welsh Language Scheme (2011 – 2014) sets out our commitments under the previous legislation, the Welsh Language Act.

The current legislation, the Welsh Language Measure (Wales) 2011 sets out the Welsh Language Standards and the Council will have a new Welsh Language Scheme in place during 2016 in order to meet the new requirements.

Additionally, the Council produces an Annual Report on progress against the scheme to the Welsh Language Commissioner’s Office.
