The Council’s Welsh Language Policy and Welsh Language Standards
This Council’s Welsh Language Policy sets out how the Council will give effect to the above principles. The Council is required to comply with Standards of conduct relating to the Welsh Language. The policy also explains how the Council intends to comply with those Standards.
