You can still have your say on Llan's People's Plan

* Amongst the many people who visited the public consultation session last week was the area's MP Simon Baynes, pictured here (second from left) with members of Shape My Llangollen.

Volunteers have successfully completed their round of face-to-face comment gathering on Llangollen's People's Plan.

But members of the public can still have their say on Caru Llangollen, which sets out the vision for how our town should develop up until 2026.   

And they have until the closing date of December 31 to do so.

The draft plan is based on what the group Shape My Llangollen was told by the people of the area in a series of pre-pandemic 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 consultation sessions, held at the health centre, outside local superstores as well as in the town square, generated 1,700 separate answers.

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 in the process of 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.

From last Wednesday to Saturday members of the team were on hand outside the Town Hall to receive people's comments on Caru Llangollen. 

And scores of people braved the rain and wind to hear an explanation of what the plan could mean for them and the town and how they can comment on its proposals.

But the process doesn't end there because hard copies of the plan are available in the library on Castle Street, which Shape My Llangollen is encouraging people to browse and then log their comments, either in written form or by emailing the Town Clerk

Copies of a card reminding people to get involved are also being posted through doors in the town this week.

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.

"I'd like to thank everyone who took the trouble to stop and speak to our team outside the Town Hall last week, especially as the weather was quite challenging.

"Since the weekend we've had a steady stream of comments on the plan coming in including some useful feedback, which is exactly what we were after.

"I'd now encourage anyone who was unable to meet us last week to take a look at a hard copy of the draft plan in the library and let us have their comments on what it proposes - either by email or in written form - by December 31."
