Yn nhermau cynllunio mae’r datblygiad arfaethedig yn ‘ddatblygiad mawr’, ac felly rhaid trefnu ymgynghoriad gyda’r gymuned lleol ac ymgynghorwyr stadudol cyn cyflwyno’r cais cynllunio yn ffurfiol i’r Awdurdod Cynllunio Lleol.

Yn unol a’r gofynion a nodir yn Rhan 1A o Orchymyn Cynllunio Gwlad a Thref (Gweithdrefn Rheoli Datblygu) (Cymru) 2012 mae Cyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Blaenau Gwent wedi comisiynu Asbri Planning Ltd i drefnu’r ymgynghoriad.

Er mwyn sicrhau ymgysylltiad llawn a’r gymuned lleol, mae’r Cyngor ac Asbri Planning yn trefnu digwyddiad ymgynghori â’r cyhoedd yng Nghlwb Rygbi Nantyglo rhwng 1.00pm a 7.30pm ar y 9fed Mai 2018. Fe wahoddir y cyhoedd i ddod i weld y cynlluniau a’r dogfennau cysylltiedig ac i drafod gyda’r tim cynllunio a Chyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Blaenau Gwent, ac i gwblhau ffurflen ymateb. Fe ddanfonwyd 300 o lythyron at breswylwyr, busnesau, sefydliadau a’r cynghorwyr ger y safle arfaethedig yn esbonio y broses ymgynghori cyn gwneud cais ynghyd ar digwyddiad ymgynghori cyhoeddus yng Nghlwb Rygbi Nantyglo.

Os na fedrwch fynychu yr ymgynghoriad cyhoeddus mae copi caled o’r dogfennau a’r gael yn  llyfrgell Brynmawr sydd ar agor rhwng:

Gellir lawrlwytho y ffurflen ymateb o safle we Asbri Planning. Dylai unrhyw un sy’n dymuno gwneud sylwadau ynglŷn â’r datblygiad arfaethedig ysgrifennu at yr asiant drwy ebostio neu Asbri Planning Ltd, Uned 9 Oak Tree Court, Mulberry Drive, Cardiff Gate Business Park, Caerdydd, CF23 8RS erbyn 21 Mai 2018.

Homeless Strategy Survey

Published: Wednesday 28 February 2018

The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 took effect from 27th April 2015. Under the Act every local authority in Wales must carry out a local review of homelessness and related services in their borough and develop and publish a four year homelessness strategy based on that review. The Welsh Government requires the strategies to be operational by 31 December 2018. Torfaen County Borough Council; Newport City Council; Monmouthshire County Council; Caerphilly County Borough Council and Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council have pooled resources to undertake a regional approach to developing a Gwent Homelessness Strategy that encompasses all five authorities’ local reviews.


The survey is running for three weeks and will close at 16:00pm on 15 March 2018.


To help develop stronger and more effective homelessness services in Blaenau Gwent and Gwent, Blaenau Gwent County Council is working with people who have experienced services first-hand.


If you have experienced or been at risk of homelessness in Gwent – please help us by completing a short survey. You can access the survey by clicking on the link below. It shouldn’t take more than five minutes to fill in.


By completing this survey you are playing a very important part in helping to improve homelessness services. Thank you.

A landlord must also publish the information on its website and ensure a copy of the information is available for inspection (without charge) in an appropriate place.

Alternative language versions (Polish, Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish and Somalian) of the Welsh Government information document, and an easy read version, will shortly be available on the Welsh Government website at

Roedd Deddf Diddymu'r Hawl i Brynu a Hawliau Cysylltiedig (Cymru) 2018 wedi derbyn Cydsyniad Brenhinol ar 24 Ionawr 2018.

Mae Llywodraeth Cymru wedi cyhoeddi dogfen Wybodaeth i Denantiaid sy'n egluro effaith y ddeddfwriaeth (y ddogfen sydd wedi'i hatodi).

Mae gan landlordiaid ddau fis ar ôl dyddiad y Cydsyniad Brenhinol, neu hyd at  17 Mawrth  pa un bynnag sy'n gyntaf, i ddarparu gwybodaeth am y Ddeddf i'w holl denantiaid perthnasol*.

Mae'r gofynion ar landlordiaid wedi'u nodi yn adran 8 o Ddeddf Diddymu'r Hawl i Brynu a Hawliau Cysylltiedig (Cymru) 2018.  Gofynnwn ichi roi o'ch amser i ymgyfarwyddo â'r gofynion hyn.

Rhaid i landlordiaid cymdeithasol ddarparu unrhyw ran o'r wybodaeth sy'n berthnasol yn eu barn nhw i'w holl denantiaid perthnasol. Ond, rhaid i'r wybodaeth gynnwys dyddiad diddymu eiddo sydd newydd ei osod (24 Mawrth 2018), a'r dyddiad y bydd y diddymiad terfynol yn dod i rym (26 Ionawr 2019). Gallai'r ddogfen wybodaeth sydd wedi'i hatodi gael ei defnyddio os yw'n briodol.

Rhaid i landlordiaid hefyd ystyried anghenion a phriodoleddau tebygol y tenantiaid sy'n derbyn yr wybodaeth - gan roi ystyriaeth i'r modd y mae'r wybodaeth yn cael ei darparu, ac a fyddai'n well ei darparu mewn modd arall.

Yn ogystal, rhaid i'r landlord gyhoeddi'r wybodaeth ar ei wefan a sicrhau bod copi o'r wybodaeth ar gael i'w harchwilio (yn ddi-dâl) mewn man priodol.

Mae fersiynau o ddogfen wybodaeth Llywodraeth Cymru ar gael mewn ieithoedd eraill (Pwyleg, Arabeg, Portiwgaleg, Sbaeneg a Somaleg), a bydd fersiwn hawdd ei ddeall ar gael cyn hir hefyd. Mae'r fersiynau hyn ar gael ar wefan Llywodraeth Cymru yn

Bydd rhaid darparu gwybodaeth i ddarpar denantiaid hefyd.  Cewch ragor o fanylion yn adran 8 o'r Ddeddf.
