Why are we doing this?

 

Moel Famau Country Park is an important destination within Denbighshire. The peak of Moel Famau is one of Denbighshire’s best-known hills and attracts thousands of visitors every year.

Over recent years, inconsiderate and dangerous parking along Bwlch Pen Barras has caused problems for local residents and businesses, as well as required extensive use of Council and Police resources to manage. Erosion caused by problem parking is also causing environmental damage in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These problems have been exacerbated at peak times including on bank holidays, in favourable weather and more recently as a result of changed travelling/holidaying habits due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Along with problem parking in Eryri (Snowdonia), problem parking at Moel Famau has made national headlines. The Council is keen to ensure the issues are addressed and that local residents and businesses feel safe and that visitors can safely enjoy the Country Park.

Llannerch Bridge: what should happen next?

 

Llannerch Bridge - a stone masonry arch bridge, being inspected by a member of staff working from suspended cherry picker van

Llannerch Bridge was a late 18th or early 19th century stone masonry bridge spanning the River Clwyd. The bridge connected the communities of Trefnant and Tremeirchion in Denbighshire. 

 

During flooding in January 2021 caused by Storm Christoph, a nearby oak tree collapsed into the flooded river and destroyed Llannerch Bridge as it was swept away.

The remains of Llannerch Bridge, with the River Clwyd in full flood sweeping through the bridge site and over the road and surrounding fields

 

Denbighshire County Council is currently looking at developing options to replace the bridge, with the following key considerations in mind:

 

 

1. The previous bridge was a Grade II listed structure. The Council will liaise with Welsh Government heritage body CADW to discuss future options for the site, as part of the planning process.

 

2. The course of the River Clwyd has changed significantly since the bridge was built, due to ongoing flooding events. This is part of the reason that the bridge was swept away. Natural Resources Wales will therefore form a very important part of the planning process and the Council will continue to discuss how any potential replacement for Llannerch bridge would need to be made resilient to future weather events.

 

3. Prior to the bridge being destroyed, the road was taking volumes of traffic which far exceeded the capacity the original road was built to cope with. The Council is aware that the route was frequently used by people wishing to access or exit the nearby A55 trunk road, especially during peak hours. The Council would like to consider whether wider works are needed on this road as part of the scheme replacement.

Why are we doing this?

Hello.

As part of the Council's obligations under the new Local Government and Elections Act (Wales) 2021, the Council is required to capture feedback from residents, businesses and other stakeholders to assess how well the Council is performing.

The Council has been surveying residents approximately once every two or three years, for a while now. Our last Residents Survey was in 2018.

This year, we will be inviting businesses and other stakeholders to take part as part of our obligations under the new legislation.

Why are we doing this?

Hello. What does Meifod mean to you?

What is Meifod and who does it support?

Meifod Wood Products is a Council-run service based on the Colomendy Industrial Estate in Denbigh. Meifod provides day services with a purpose, to a range of people in Denbighshire with disabilities or other complex needs. People who go to Meifod are supported to create wood products such as garden furniture, which are then sold locally to residents and businesses.

What's happening to Meifod right now?

Nothing is currently happening to Meifod, the site has been closed since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Council is keen to resume services for people who go to Meifod as soon as it is safe and practical to do so, however unfortunately Meifod cannot resume in exactly the same way as it ran before Covid-19 for the following reasons:

- The building currently requires repairs

- Some of the equipment requires repairing or upgrading to make it compliant with the latest Covid-19 and other Health & Safety guidance

- There is some uncertainty about our ability to continue providing exactly the same products due to global market trends (e.g. the price of wood has increased significantly)

 

Additionally, we know that some people have told us that they will not be returning to Meifod.

Before spending money fixing things, buying new things and looking for new suppliers, the Council is keen to review the services that Meifod provides and to ensure that it is still the best fit for as many people as possible.
