Why are we doing this?

In 2018, we spoke to over 1,500 people to find out what they thought of Rhyl Town Centre at the moment and what changes they would like to see. Now, we have grouped those ideas and concerns into key themes, from which we have developed 8 Big Ideas, which all future developments in the Town Centre should support. We would like to know if you think these are the right ideas.

Please download the display materials and let us know what you think by completing the questionnaire linked below.

Why are we doing this?

We are changing the way in which we manage our physical assets. In the future our land and buildings will be grouped with similar types of property, into one of eight Portfolio Plans.

As part of the process we are reviewing the land and buildings within each portfolio plan, to make sure that our properties are necessary and suitable for the delivery of our services, that they are not unnecessarily costly to run, and .to make sure that we are not missing opportunities to share them with other public services which could make things more convenient for our customers.

To share any comment regarding the Care property portfolio plan please email careppp@denbighshire.gov.uk

View more details for consultation Improving access in and around Rhyl Town Centre Improving access in and around Rhyl Town Centre Customers, Communications and Marketing 08 Apr 2019 31 May 2019
Why are we doing this?

We've been exploring ways to improve how traffic and people move around Rhyl Town Centre.

In particular we've been looking at the existing issues which include:

- The current system was designed for the past when there were heavier east/west flows along the A548 Coast Road
- Long queues from the South (A525 Vale Road, and the A55) at peak times
- A limited number of crossings over the railway line
- Poor directional signage
- Difficulty accessing parking because of indirect routes around the one-way system.
- The number of traffic lights
- Extra traffic due to motorists 'searching for spaces'
- East and West Parade forms a 'barrier' between top of High Street and the beach
- Better connections are needed ebtween the town and National Cycle Network (NCN) Route 5 that runs along the promenade

The work we have undertaken has resulted in the following solution:
- High street to be two-way between Brighton Road and Wellington Road
- Remove the High Street pedestrian zone allowing one-way northbound traffic between Wellington Road and East/West Parade

This would:
- Halve existing journey times between Vale Road bridge and the Promenade
- Cut in half journey times between Vale Road bridge and Morley Road car park
- Shorten Saturday afternoon queues on Vale Road bridge to less than half their current length
- Make it easier and quicker to get around Rhyl Town Centre

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?

Can you help us improve support for Carers in Denbighshire? Are you, or have you been, a Carer looking for help and information? Have you tried to juggle paid work with caring duties in your free time?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of the above, please read on, as we would value your input into this work.

 

One of Denbighshire County Council's priorities in our Corporate Plan 2017-2022 is to work with people and communities to build independence and resilience.

People who take on a caring role for their family and friends play a very important part in helping those individuals to remain in their own homes for longer. 

Our Corporate Project - Supporting Carers in Denbighshire - has the over-arching objective to ensure all Carers in Denbighshire are well supported.

 

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.

 

The project has the following objectives relating to Adult Carers:

  • Denbighshire County Council and our communities recognise the importance and benefit of supporting Carers.
  • Our citizens who carry out caring roles have access to high quality information, advice and assistance to promote their own personal wellbeing outcomes.
  • We have robust processes and clear pathways for identification of Carers in need of support.
  • Community Support Service effectively responds to the support needs of Carers requiring statutory assistance.
  • A range of preventative services for Carers is available from the third sector.
  • Carers employed by Denbighshire County Council are supported to manage their caring role alongside their work commitments.
  • All Carers are supported to attain their educational goals, and to continue their educational development if they wish.
  • All Carers and the individuals they care for have access to suitable and inclusive leisure opportunities.
  • Carers are engaged actively in the planning and shaping of services.

 

Desired Project Outcomes:

  • Carers will be more resilient and independent.
  • Carers will be well informed and will feel supported within their communities.
  • Carers will be able to live a fulfilled life.
  • Carers will be able to care for longer, if that is their choice.
  • Citizens of Denbighshire and those working within Denbighshire will have a greater understanding of the importance of supporting Carers. 

 

 

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 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.

We are keen to find out from you what issues you have experienced when accessing information, advice and assistance to help you in your caring duties. We want to be able to improve the support we offer to Carers in Denbighshire and we need your help to do that.
