A Gwynedd Council spokesman said: “Parc Glynllifon country park, which is managed by the council, is an important attraction enjoyed by local residents and visitors alike.
“Whilst the council has implemented some changes during recent years, it has been agreed that a review of the long-term future management of the park should be undertaken: this will be carried out during 2018/19.”
Cllr Ioan Thomas, Gwynedd Council economic development cabinet member, said: “The council has recently received outline ideas from the owners of Plas Glynllifon. However, further details would be required before the council could assess and consider the matter in detail.”
“Given the importance of Parc Glynllifon locally, we have emphasised the need for engagement and consultation with the community, local groups and businesses.”
