Windfarms Community Planning Project

This project will help us to deliver our Corporate Plan priority around Resilient Communities, where the Council works with people and communities to build independence and resilience. You can read more about our Corporate Plan 2017-22 by clicking here.

What will the Windfarms Community Planning Project project help us to achieve?

The main aims of the Windfarms Community Planning project are to:

  • Help eligible communities in Denbighshire realise the maximum benefit of both the Clocaenog and Brenig Windfarm Community Funds.
  • Provide guidance to eligible groups to implement robust, impactful and innovative projects that are more likely to secure grant funding from the Clocaenog and Brenig Windfarm Funds.
  • Share examples of good practice relating to community development across Denbighshire.

 

 

What are we proposing to help us achieve our aims?

We are proposing:

  • Increase the capacity of our Community Development Resource to coincide with the launch of both the Brenig and Clocaenog Windfarm Community Benefit Funds.
  • Offer bespoke, enabling, community development support to groups who are developing community project ideas.
  • Organise and support workshops and events where community development knowledge sharing and guidance is facilitated.

Finding a 'new normal' for Rhyl town centre

In May 2020, Welsh Government put out a call for expressions of interest from local authorities to bid for funding to make short-term, temporary changes to town centres that will help to make them feel safe and welcoming. The council submitted expressions of interest for proposed schemes in Rhyl, Denbigh, Ruthin and Llangollen.

On 21st June 2020, the council launched a survey to find out how businesses and residents felt about town centres beginning to re-open. Early responses indicate that businesses are quieter than they usually would be for the time of year, and that residents are generally nervous about returning to town centres. Many respondents indicated that they were only visiting town centres to carry out essential tasks and over half of respondents who left a comment expressed concerns about pavement widths and the inability to safely practice social distancing. The survey is ongoing and can be accessed here

The survey responses received to date suggest that the range of propsals which the council submitted to Welsh Government are appropriate and proportional to the scale of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Welsh Government has approved funding for the proposals, however the council would like to consult with the local community before any final decision on the scheme is made.

In summary, the proposals for Rhyl are to create improved shared space for pedestrians and cyclists in key areas of Rhyl between the railway station and the seafront. This will be through the installation of temporary ‘Lane Defender’ systems in the following locations:

  • The eastern side of Bodfor Street and Queen Street
  • The northern side of Wellington Road, between Elwy Street and High Street
  • Along West Parade, between Water Street and High Street

Welsh Government has approved funding for the proposals, however the council would like to consult with the local community before any final decision on the scheme is made.

In summary, the proposals for Ruthin are to:

1. Support social distancing in Market Street and Well Street by introducing a one-way traffic system to the town centre along these routes. This will enable pavements to be widened in problem areas

2. To support pubs, cafés and restaurants in Ruthin town centre to create outside seating areas where it is safe and practicable to do so.

3. To acknowledge the increased interest in active travel and associated health benefits, and to encourage and support people to choose active travel as a means of getting about in the town centre by implementing infrastructure changes which make active travel easier

2. Temporarily relocate Denbigh market from Hall Square to the High Street (where it used to be). This is because a large amount of Hall Square is currently inaccessible due to ongoing works on the former Crown Hotel, and will allow stalls to spread out further.

3. To support pubs, cafés and restaurants on Vale Street and High Street to create outside seating areas where it is practicable to do so.

4. To acknowledge the increased interest in active travel and associated health benefits, and to encourage and support people to choose active travel as a means of getting about in the town centre by implementing infrastructure changes which make active travel easier

5. To temporarily impose a 20mph speed limit along Park Street, Beacon's Hill and Grove Road, in case the one-way system leads to an increase in traffic along these routes.
