Why are we doing this?

Hello. We're proposing to improve the coastal defences in the central Rhyl area.

Rhyl is a well-loved seaside town with many homes and businesses located along the seafront.

The central area of Rhyl (approximately between Splash Point to the east and the Drift Park to the west) is currently protected by sea defence structures. However, these are deteriorating and, if no work is carried out, they could fail within the next 10-15 years. Currently, 550 residential and 45 non-residential properties are at predicted to be at risk from flooding.

The purpose of the proposed scheme is to improve coastal flood defences in Central Rhyl to protect homes, businesses and the tourist economy from flooding events and coastal erosion well into the future.

To view the pre-planning application pack, please visit the following page of our website:

Why are we doing this?

Traffic Regulation Order: proposed Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting and Loading and Parking Places - Erw Goch and A525 Llanfair Road, Ruthin

 

Hello, we’re consulting on a Traffic Regulation Order for Erw Goch and A525 Llanfair Road in Ruthin, the effects of which will be:

  • To introduce no waiting at any time on A525 Llanfair Road, and Erw Goch
  • To introduce no waiting between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm on a smaller section of A525 Llanfair Road 

What is a Traffic Regulation Order?

 

Traffic Regulation Orders are legal documents that restrict or prohibit the use of the highway network, in line with The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

 

Traffic Regulation Orders help us to manage the highway network for all road users including pedestrians, and they aim to improve road safety and access to facilities in the areas for which they are proposed.

 

A Traffic Regulation Order can only be proposed for the reasons set out in the legislation, and a scheme can only be proposed if the regulations allow the scheme site to be enforced with appropriate highway signage or lines on the road or pavement.

 

Examples of schemes that require a Traffic Regulation Order include:

 

  • Prohibition of Waiting
  • Changes to speed limits
  • On-street parking restrictions
  • Weight limits / width limits or other vehicle restrictions
  • One-way streets

 

What is a prohibition of waiting?


A prohibition of waiting aims to stop the majority of vehicle users from stopping and waiting in their vehicles in the proposed area.
 

A full description of the proposed Traffic Regulation Order and a statement of the reasons for proposing it are available to download below. Hard copies of the proposed Order, and accompanying documents are also available for inspection at:

 

Ruthin Library, Record Street, Ruthin, LL15 1DS

 

Enforcement

If the Traffic Regulation Order goes ahead, any road user who waits, parks, or loads/unloads in the proposed locations is in breach of the terms of the Order will be liable for a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) and their vehicle may also be removed from that location.

 

What do we want to know?

 

Tell us what you think:

Why are we doing this?

Note: this feedback activity ran from 12th November 2020 to 31st January 2021. We are no longer receiving responses.

 

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:

Finding a 'new normal' for Ruthin town centre (opens in new tab)

 

What do we want to know?

The proposals for Ruthin were debated by the Member Area Group (MAG) for Ruthin, a group of County Councillors representing Ruthin and the surrounding areas. The Ruthin MAG recommended to the Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment that a decision was made to proceed with the scheme, supported in part by the favourable community responses received.

Works to install the temporary scheme have now been completed and the Council is now entering the 'monitoring' phase of this trial project. We would very much welcome your feedback on this trial scheme, and to learn about your experiences of living in, working in or visiting Ruthin. Our intention is to launch new feedback surveys approximately every 8-10 weeks until the trial period draws to a close. Doing this will allow us to understand the impact the scheme has at different times of year, and will also allow us to report back to you regularly.

 

 Tell us what you think

We are interested in your experiences of accessing Ruthin town centre now the temporary scheme is in place. Everyone is welcome to leave feedback as often as they like, however we would be particularly interested to hear from people who took part in our previous consultation on this temporary scheme, back in July 2020. 

We'll be launching a new survey roughly every 8-10 weeks so please don't forget to sign up for updates at the end of the survey if you're interested in receiving notifications when the next survey goes live, or when we publish any reports/findings.

View more details for consultation Supporting Adult Carers in Denbighshire Supporting Adult Carers in Denbighshire Community Support Services 01 Apr 2018 31 Mar 2022
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.

What do we want to know?

If you are, or have been a Carer for a member of your family or a friend, please take some time to complete our 2021 survey. It should not take too long, but you can do part and come back and complete it later if you wish. Just save the survey before you leave the page.

The closing date for the 2021 survey is Sunday 15th August 2021
