Why are we doing this?

Hello. Would you like to help shape the Council's future priorities?

 

Every five years, the Council has to produce something called a  'Corporate Plan'. This plan gives the Council focus and helps all of the Council's services to work together, to plan and achieve specific goals that will help to make Denbighshire a better place to live, work and visit, for everyone.

The current Corporate Plan began in 2017 and will end in 2022. The priorities identified for the Council in the current Corporate Plan included:

 

  1. Housing: Everyone is supported to live in homes that meet their needs. Find out more about the Housing Corporate Priority

  2. Connected Communities: Communities are connected and have access to goods and services locally, online and through good transport links. Find out more about the Connected Communities Corporate Priority

  3. Resilient Communities: The council works with people and communities to build independence and resilience. Find out more about the Resilient Communities Corporate Priority

  4. Environment: Attractive and protected, supporting well-being and economic prosperity. Find out more about the Environment Corporate Priority

  5. Young People: A place where younger people will want to live and work and have the skills to do so. Find out more about the Young People Corporate Priority

Llangollen 2020 Castle Street Improvement Project

Hello, we’re looking to make some changes to Llangollen town centre. Llangollen is an important and popular destination in southern Denbighshire.

Since 2018, Denbighshire County Council has been working closely with the Llangollen 2020 Group to develop proposals to improve Castle Street and some of the surrounding streets in Llangollen town centre. The Llangollen 2020 Group includes both of Llangollen’s County Councillors as well as representatives from Llangollen Town Council.

A study of Llangollen town centre took place in 2018, and part of this study included asking local people what they considered to be the biggest existing problems in Llangollen town centre, and how they thought these could be fixed. The biggest problems raised were:

  • Traffic congestion on Castle Street
  • Parking congestion generally
  • Pavements are too narrow
  • Pavements are cluttered with sign posts
  • Castle Street is difficult for pedestrians to cross

To help tackle these problems, the Llangollen 2020 Group along with the Council have come up with the following proposals:

  • Remove on-street parking from Castle Street, to make the pavements wider on both sides
  • Goods vehicle loading bay on the west side of Castle Street near to the Market Street junction
  • Goods vehicle loading bay on the west side of Castle Street near to the Town Hall
  • Disabled parking bay to be provided on the south side of Bridge Street near the Castle Street junction
  • Disabled parking bay to be provided on the north side of Oak Street near the Castle Street junction
  • Castle Street pavements to be resurfaced with high quality Yorkstone paving
  • Pedestrian dropped kerbs to be provided on Castle Street
  • Road level to be ‘ramped’ at the Castle Street/Bridge Street junction to reduce traffic speeds
  • 20 mph speed limit on Castle Street
  • Market Street to be made one-way in a westerly direction between its junction with Castle Street and its junction with East Street.
  • Goods vehicle loading bay to be provided on the south side of Market Street
  • 14 free parking spaces to be provided in Market Street car park. This will include 10 standard parking bays with a maximum stay of 1 hour and 4 disabled parking bays with a maximum stay of 2 hours.
  • Remove on-street parking on Abbey Road at its junction with Castle Street to make the pavement wider on the north side of Abbey Road
  • Shared residents’ parking and short stay parking to be allowed on both sides of Bridge Street

We would now like to ask for your views on these proposals.

Plans showing the proposals can be viewed as part of this online consultation. Computer generated images have also been provided to show how Castle Street would look if the scheme was built.

Funding is in place to deliver the proposed scheme in the Autumn and Winter of 2021-22. However, Denbighshire County Council has not yet made a final decision on whether to go ahead with this scheme. This decision will be made by the Council’s Cabinet and will take account of the responses to the consultation and the views of the interested parties.

Hello. Can you help us to tackle homelessness earlier?

What is homelessness?

Homelessness means not having a safe place to live. This can include living in unsuitable accommodation, ‘sofa-surfing’ (staying in someone's home unofficially) and sleeping rough (sleeping outside)

Who is at risk of homelessness?

Becoming homeless can happen to anyone, and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Reasons people may be at risk of becoming homeless can include (but are not limited to):

 

  • Landlords giving eviction notices (which may not be the fault of the tenant)
  • Relationship breakdowns
  • Domestic abuse
  • Accommodation becoming unaffordable, for example due to:
    • Rent/mortgage increases
    • A reduction or loss in household income (money coming in is less than money going out)

Why are we doing this?

Get involved in our new discussions and share your opinion on a variety of climate and ecological change topics. 

The year 2020 was an unprecedented year for many reasons, but also for fossil-fuel generated power. April 2020 was the start of longest period the UK has gone with coal-free electricity since Thomas Edison first used coal to create electricity in 1882, with two coal-free months and solar generation helping meet demand. This month will mark the 1 year anniversary of this momentous event. 

This week's topic launches on April 12th and will be concentrating on renewable and sustainable energy options. What is your opinion on the various renewable energy solutions? Do you have solar, wind or another sustainable energy at home? What are your thoughts on renewable energy the solutions available going forward? We’d like to hear your views and ideas.

You can sign up to take part by registering for the Y Panel Climate and Ecological Change sub-group here or, if you already have an account, simply log in here and click on the 'Discussions' link to see the latest topic. This will enable you to post a comment, reply to existing comments and also receive notifications when a new topic is ‘live’.

Control of Dogs in Denbighshire, Public Space Prevention Order consultation

We are consulting on a draft Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to make people properly control their dogs in public areas in Denbighshire

 

Why are we doing this?

We often receive complaints about anti-social behaviour from dog owners who don’t control their dogs properly in public places. Anti-social behaviour can include:

  • Allowing a dog to foul an area of public land without cleaning it up
  • Letting a dog off a lead anywhere that this is not allowed
  • Letting a dog enter a restricted area
     

In 2017 Denbighshire County Council introduced a Control of Dogs PSPO to help to tackle these issues. The current PSPO has expired and we have a legal duty to ensure that members of the public as well as our partner organisations such as North Wales Police and Natural Resources Wales have an opportunity to feed back.

Hello.

We're looking at what health care, social care and housing-related support should be in place in Denbigh and the surrounding area for the future. We are particularly interested in the needs of older people now and over the next 25 years, so our main focus will be on reaching those who are aged 50 and over but we would welcome responses from people of all ages including those with wider health needs and their carers, who live in Denbigh and the surrounding villages.
