The group of volunteers putting together Llangollen’s contribution to the county council’s next Local Development Plan is holding three meet-the-public events during May.
Shape My Llangollen (SML) was formed last year at the behest of the Town Council to produce a 'place plan' for Llangollen.
The idea is that this plan, when approved and endorsed by the Town Council, will feed into the new emerging Local Development Plan being produced by Denbighshire County Council.
The plan will cover topics such as the natural environment, built environment, economy, and community and is a genuine opportunity for some grassroots democracy.
SML is therefore engaged upon a far-ranging consultation exercise is contacting as many of our local organisations and individuals as possible to seek their views on any issues which affect or concern them so that they may have an input into the plan.
This could be anything from the state of local roads and pavements to the provision of social care and youth facilities, in fact anything which might have an effect on the local community.
During May SML is hosting a series of three consultation events when they'll be asking members of the public for their views on what’s good and bad about our town and finding out how they think it could be improved.
These special days will be held at:
+ Llangollen Health Centre next Tuesday, May 7, from 10am until 1pm and from 2pm until 5pm.
+ The Co-op store in Regent Street on Monday May 13, from 10am until 1pm and from 2pm until 5pm.
+ The Home Bargains store next to Aldi off Berwyn Street, on Thursday May 23, from 10am until 1pm and from 2pm until 5pm.
So if you have strong opinions about Llangollen and its future shape, we’d love to meet and chat to you at any of these events.
