You now have more time to have your say on Llangollen’s People’s Plan.
And to let everyone know how and by when they can get involved every household in the town is this week to receive a reminder through the post.
Known as Caru Llangollen, the plan has been prepared by a team of volunteers with the aim of providing a comprehensive vision for how our town should develop over the next four years.
The suggestions in it are 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 generated over 1,700 separate answers.
And, based on what they were told, the volunteers produced the final draft of the plan which contains around 90 proposals for improving Llangollen and its quality of life and work up until the year 2026.
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.
This will then go before the Town Council - which set them the original task in 2018 - for approval and adoption a little later this year.
During the first week of December the group successfully completed their round of face-to-face comment gathering on the plan outside the Town Hall.
Originally the public had until December 31 to have their say on Caru Llangollen.
But feedback has been so enthusiastic that the group has now decided to extend the deadline for comments by another month, until January 31, so even more people can take part in the process.
Hard copies of the plan are available in Llangollen library as well as online and to give the consultation an extra boost the group has now arranged for notes to be posted through every household in the town inviting comments to be made through written or emailed responses.
Phil Robinson, who chairs SML, said: “We’ve been receiving some really valuable and positive comments on the plan to the extent where we decided to give people a bit more time to send in their comments. They now have until the end of January to tell us what they think about it.
“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 something which has never been done before in Llangollen.
"I'd like to thank everyone who has taken the trouble to send in their comments so far and I invite as many people as possible to take part.”
