Why are we doing this?

Denbighshire County Council is currently preparing a new 10-year Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) for 2022-2032, and is carrying out consultation on its draft plan, which has been prepared in accordance with Welsh Government guidance.

The draft plan sets out the Council’s vision for Welsh-medium education, followed by a number of targets and actions, based around 7 Outcomes, with the aim of increasing the use of Welsh in education over the next 10 years. These outcomes will contribute towards achieving the Welsh Government’s Cymraeg 2050 Strategy, which aims to have one million Welsh speakers by 2050.

Why are we doing this?

Cae DdolIn July 2019, the Council passed a motion to declare a Climate Change and Ecological Emergency.  A cross party-political working group was established to oversee the development of a Climate and Ecological Change Strategy. This strategy can be viewed here, and was approved by Council in February 2021, committing the Council to become Net Carbon Zero and more Ecologically Positive Council by 2030. This includes reducing the Council’s carbon emissions from several sources. However, reduction of our emissions alone will not enable us to reach net zero, we must also increase the amount of carbon sequestered (or absorbed) by 2030 in order to achieve this.


This woodland creation project will help the council achieve that carbon zero goal by contributing to the amount of carbon sequestered (or absorbed).


Additionally, to achieve the Ecologically Positive target, and help nature’s recovery, the Council must increase the species richness of its land. Mixed Broadleaf and Yew Woodland is in the top 3 species richness habitats so any work to increase woodland in Council ownership will support this target.


This woodland creation project will help the council achieve that increased biodiversity target by 2030 and positively contribute towards helping nature’s recovery in Denbighshire. 
 

Where is the proposed woodland location?
These plans are in relation to woodland creation at Cae Ddol in Ruthin. Please find a location plan included below.
 

What we’re intending to do at Cae Ddol includes to:
•    Increase the current tree canopy cover to at least 20%
•    Increase biodiversity through this woodland creation
•    Include ‘celebration’ trees which will be given the space they need to thrive
•    Improve nature connectivity by planting hedgerows
•    Manage the existing wildflower meadow area differently to allow woodland species to thrive

 

Please find illustrated site designs below. These outline the proposed plans and locations of the specified enhancements.
