Volunteers begin collecting comments on People's Plan

A team of volunteers has begun the process of logging public reaction to Llangollen's People's Plan.

Between today (Thursday) and Saturday the team from Shape My Llangollen will be on hand outside the Town Hall to receive your comments on the draft plan, Caru Llangollen, which sets out the vision for how our town should develop up until 2026. 

The plan is based on what the group was told by the people of Llangollen in a series of public consultation sessions when they were asked about what they liked or didn't like about the town and how they reckon it could be improved.

These face-to-face sessions, held at the health centre, outside local superstores as well as in the town square, generated hundreds of replies.

And, based on what they were told, the volunteers have produced the final draft plan which contains 90 suggestions for improving Llangollen and its quality of life and work over the next four years. 

Shape My Llangollen is now putting the People's Plan back to the people for the last time before producing the final version of it.

This will then go before the Town Council, which set them the original task in 2018, for approval and adoption.

The final public consultation sessions, the first of which was held yesterday, are taking place outside the town hall and continue until Saturday.

On Friday the group will be there to meet the public between 10am and 4pm. 

Today (Thursday) because many people will be attending the funeral of Wyn 'Paraffin' Hughes - the opening hours are a little later from 2 until 4pm and on Saturday the group will be on hand from 10am-1pm.  

Following this exercise and armed with the public’s latest impressions on the draft, SML will then produce the final Action Plan ready for publication early in 2022. 

Phil Robinson, who chairs SML, said: “This final round of public consultation is extremely important as it will be the last chance for people to have their say on this vital and far-reaching vision of the town’s future development.

"This is truly the People's Plan and is something which has never been done before in Llangollen.

"Please come along to Centenary Square, take a look at the plan and tell us what you think of its recommendations."
