Rejected petition Prevent change of purpose of the polish village in Pwlleli.

During the second world war this property was an air force base run by the Polish air force. Whilst they flew into many battles from here, the most important one was the part that they played in the Battle of Britain, when 60% of the German kills in that battle was credited to the Polish fighter Pilots from this Airfield. The decision came sometime after to turn the whole site into a residential care Home, again primarily for Polish residents, many of whom remained here after the war.

More details

A company from Wrexham have, without consultation with the residents, have purchased the site for £1.00, which to us is an absurdity & a disgrace, they are also planning to close the care home. We are sure that if informed about the sale beforehand we could have had a whip round the residents & paid £100.00 for the site.A couple moved in on 27th June2020, oblivious to the new developments. But it is not just the residents that will suffer because of this move, the staff, most of them, also live on site, Management, office workers, maintenance & grounds people, all face job insecurity & homelessness.I am asking for your help, please look into what is happening at the Polish Housing Society Home in Pwllheli, LL53 7HN. To see how we can stop this insane action from happening. We are, after all, supposed to be a nation of carers, and help these pensioner’s keep their homes & way of life just the way that they like it, and stop business people making a profit at their expense.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Unfortunately, the Senedd cannot accept a petition on this issue, as the future care and support of the Polish Village residents is a matter for the local authority. Petitions on local authority operational matters cannot be accepted.

You could consider contacting Gwynedd Council or your local representatives about this matter instead.
