The Welsh language is one of the special qualities of Snowdonia National Park. In the 2001 census, 63% of the Park’s population were Welsh speakers. The Welsh language is therefore a fundamental part of our cultural heritage, which we have a duty to conserve and enhance (as defined by the National Park Authority’s statutory purposes).
The National Park Authority has an adopted Welsh Language Scheme which sets out how to treat the Welsh and English Language on the basis of equality. Under the Language Scheme, and also giving consideration to the Welsh Language Board’s guidelines on awarding grants and loans; the Authority ensures that the principle of language equality is reflected in any grant supported activity. Therefore, when we award grants under the CAE Fund, we can include conditions with regard to the use of Welsh.
