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.

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.

Update, Monday 22nd March 2021
This engagement activity closed on 21st March 2021. We are currently analysing all of your responses and we will update this page soon.

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.

Why are we doing this?

Has Covid-19 changed the way Llangollen thinks about transport?

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has had a massive impact in the way that we all think about many of the most basic things, including how we travel. During the early weeks of the first 'lockdown' (March/April 2020) the Welsh Government noted that many towns had an upsurge in people choosing to walk or cycle as their main means of transport, as well as an increase in air quality as large numbers of polluting vehicles were left at home. Welsh Government were keen to ensure that these positive changes were made sustainable for the longer term. 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 would encourage people to travel more actively, and make social distancing measures easier to maintain. Denbighshire County Council prepared and submitted expressions of interest for proposed schemes in Llangollen, Denbigh, Ruthin and Rhyl.

The proposal submitted for Llangollen was to install 'lane defenders' on parts of Abbey Road and Castle Street, to close the link road between Berwyn Street and Hall Street (the A5), and to reverse the direction of flow of vehicles on Church Street. These measures would:

  • Widen pavements in areas where they are narrow
  • Support some pubs, cafes and restaurants in the town centre area to create outside seating areas for their customers
  • Discourage the use of busy pedestrian areas as a 'rat run' for commuters
  • Encourage and support commuters and residents to choose active travel (walking or cycling) as their main means of getting around town
  • Encourage and support commuters, residents and tourists to choose active travel (walking or cycling) as their main means of getting around town

Upon being awarded an agreement in principle for the funding, the Council launched consultations for each of the four proposed schemes - from 10th July to 26th July 2020. The consultation for Llangollen received 91 responses in total, with approximately 65% of respondents supporting the proposals.

Why are we doing this?

Denbighshire County Council declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency in July 2019 which committed the Council to become net carbon zero by 2030 and improve biodiversity.

We ran a public engagement event in January and February 2020 asking for your feedback on the Council’s net carbon zero and ecologically positive goals and your ideas on how the Council can achieve them by 2030. You can read more about that engagement by clicking this link.

Building on your ideas we have worked with Members and Officers from across the Council to develop the Council’s Climate and Ecological Change Strategy (2021/22 – 2029/30).
This is the draft document we would be delighted if you would read and then let us know what you think.

The document explains what we mean by the goals net carbon zero and ecologically positive Council, how the Council is currently performing on both, what we hope 2030 will look like for the Council having achieved our goals and the changes and actions we hope to deliver over the next 9 years.

You can read the strategy document by clicking the link below:

- Denbighshire County Council's Climate and Ecological Change Strategy (2021/22-2029/30)

We have also produced versions of the strategy document in different formats. These can be read by clicking the appropriate link below:

- Youth friendly version

- Easy read version

The consultation closes on Monday 7th December.

Why are we doing this?

Hello. Please help us to help your town recover from Covid-19 (coronavirus).

In March 2020, the Welsh Government announced a 'lockdown' in order to slow the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus), a dangerous respiratory disease. For more than three months, town centres - the heart of many of our communities - stood still and quiet, with businesses closed and visitors and locals alike asked to stay at home and away from others until things became better. 

On 19th June 2020, the Welsh Government announced that businesses could begin to re-open and that (provided that Covid-19 case numbers or transmission rates continued to drop) people would be able to again enjoy increasing levels of freedom.
