Scam Alert!! North Wales Police

We are aware of a recent scam that attempted to lure the public into paying fake fines. The scammers pretended to be Police and claimed to be prosecuting individuals for failing to wear masks in public. To avoid prosecution, they advise that an immediate £100 card payment should be made on their website.
Be careful with any unexpected requests for payment. Take steps to verify their validity before taking any action or clicking on any links.

Residents invited to help begin shaping the Council’s future priorities

Denbighshire County Council is beginning to work on developing a new Corporate Plan, and would like residents to get involved and have their say.

The Council has to produce a new Corporate Plan every five years, this plan gives the Council focus and helps all of the Council’s services to work together, to plan and achieve specific goals that will help to make Denbighshire a better place to live, work and visit, for everyone.
The current Corporate Plan started in 2017 following a consultation exercise called County Conversation and will finish in 2022.

From the consultation, residents and the Council identified priorities for Housing, Young People, Connected Communities, Resilient Communities and the Environment.

The Council is now keen to continue the County Conversation and ask residents what the priorities should be for the next five years.

Councillor Julian Thompson-Hill, the Council’s Lead Member for Finance, Performance and Strategic Assets, said: “It is vitally important residents take this chance to have their say on shaping the Corporate Plan and the priorities during the next five years.
“We had fantastic feedback for our last Corporate Plan and we want to continue that success to find out what’s most important to you and help us to make sure we focus on the right areas.
“This is a great chance to have your voice heard, engage with us and help us continue to make Denbighshire a better place to live, work and visit.”

To help with this, the Council is launching a survey and running some online focus groups.
The Continuing the County Conversation survey will be live online from May 24 to July 31 2021, with paper copies being distributed to home library service users or available to collect and return from libraries from June 1 to July 31, 2021.
The online focus groups will be hosted on Microsoft Teams in June and July.

To take part and have your say, please  complete the online survey and/or sign up for the online focus groups.

Active Travel Denbighshire map

Have your say on active travel in Denbighshire towns

Denbighshire County Council is working with Sustrans Cymru as part of Welsh Government’s Active Travel Network Map consultation (ATNM).

In this initial phase, the Council is looking for feedback on where residents would like to see improvements to walking and cycling in Bodelwyddan, Corwen, Denbigh, Dyserth, Llangollen, Meliden, Prestatyn, Rhuddlan, Rhyl, Ruthin and St Asaph.

The project focuses on the 11 towns in Denbighshire which have been selected by Welsh Government as the designated localities in the county.

The ATNM is a plan of routes the Council will use to inform where improvements to walking and cycling should be made within the county and it will help to make journeys on foot or by bike across Denbighshire easier and safer for everyone, particularly those who don’t currently walk or cycle often and people who use mobility aids.

Cllr Brian Jones, the Council’s Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “Active travel helps reduce carbon and improve air quality along with improving health and wellbeing, so this is an excellent opportunity for Denbighshire residents to tell us what they would like to see included on our future Active Travel Network Map.

“In order to design a network that works for everyone, we would like to get the views of as many people as possible, particularly those who don’t currently walk or cycle as this will help make sure the routes built for walking and cycling work for the whole community.”

For further information on how to provide feedback go to the Active Travel page.
