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.”

Rural Crime

It is the time of year where we find heating oil thefts begin to be reported. The temperature is dropping, tanks are likely to have been filled and the nights are getting darker/longer.

To make oil/fuel tanks more resistant to attack, please consider the following crime prevention advice:

  • If possible, site the tank so that it is visible from the house and as far away as possible from roads, paths and other public routes.
  • Try to ensure that the tank is not visible from the road.
  • Install security lighting to protect the area around the tank as most offences take place at night.
  • Lock the filler cap with a good quality padlock and protect feed pipes to the house where possible.
  • Plant thorny defensive shrubs around your fuel tank, such as holly.
  • Check the amount of oil in the tank regularly.
  • Be vigilant of any unusual vans or lorries parked close to homes or gardens.
  • Always report any evidence of theft, attempted theft or evidence of tampering to the Police.

There is also a bilingual leaflet that will be helpful.

St. Michael & All Angels – Bulb Planting

Through the generous donation from the Efenechtyd Community Council in memory of Olivia Alkir, the villagers spent a sunny afternoon planting bulbs in the church yard. About 25 people from the village came with their spades, shovels and a variety of equipment to plant the bulbs around the edge of the church yard.

Everyone worked enthusiastically to plant the bulbs. Some cherished the challenge of using only a spoon!

Mike Williams also came along to supervise the planting.

We now are all waiting for the Spring to see the result of our labours with tulips, crocuses and daffodils!

Supervisor!
