Has Covid-19 changed the way Ruthin 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 Ruthin, Denbigh, Llangollen and Rhyl.

The proposal submitted for Ruthin was to create one-way systems for road traffic in Market Street (traffic flowing downhill) and Well Street (traffic flowing uphill). This 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
• 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 Ruthin received 606 responses in total, with approximately 81% of respondents supporting the proposals. You can access the consultation and summary reports via the link below:

What difference has it made?

In February 2021 the temporary scheme was removed. Denbighshire County Council has no plans to pursue further temporary measures in Ruthin as a response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, but is committed to exploring the future of active travel and sustainable transport as part of its ongoing obligations in fulfilment of the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013.

Hackney Carriage Fare Review 2022 – Public Consultation

The Council is proposing a new revised table of fares for Hackney Carriages licensed by the Council. The Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 provides that in respect of the charges for Hackney Carriages, the Council “may fix the rates or fares within the district as well for time as distance, and all other charges in connection with the hire of a vehicle…by means of a table.”

The proposed changes are the first increase since 2018. The amended fares comprise, in summary, of:

  • Increased start charge for all tariffs
  • Sundays to be permanently Tariff 2
  • Surcharge per passenger for journeys more than 4 passengers
  • Tariff 1 changes to start and finish times
  •  Tariff 2 to start at 6 pm on a Friday and Saturday

Why are we doing this?

We are seeking feedback from adult carers (over 18 years of age) to help us improve policy and service development for unpaid carers in Denbighshire.

Please note: This project is about supporting people who are unpaid Carers for family and/or friends, and not about people who are employed in a caring role, for example with a domiciliary care provider.

Who is a Carer?

If you provide regular unpaid help and support for a relative, partner or friend who is frail, or disabled, has physical or mental health issues, or substance misuse problems, then you are a Carer. The Social Services and Well-Being Act (Wales) 2014 defines a Carer as someone who provides or intends to provide care for an adult or disabled child.
