Walkabout briefing sessions to be held for Great Highways project

A number of ‘walkabout’ public consultation sessions are to be held in the town next week for the £1.25m Four Great Highways project.

The scheme, financed mainly by cash from the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund and implemented by Denbighshire County Council, aims to improve public spaces linking the four famous ‘highways’ that run through the heart of Llangollen – the canal, the old Ruabon to Barmouth Railway line, the River Dee and A5 Holyhead Road. 

The design team in charge of the project are currently running a public consultation exercise on it and have already held online sessions and sent out a questionnaire, copies of which are available online or at the library.

Now, during the morning and afternoon of Wednesday February 8, the project team and their designers Burroughs & The Urbanists will be hosting four walkabout public consultation sessions at the Wharf and Mill Street car park.  

The team are asking people to email them if they want to attend, or they can add their names to a list being kept for them at the library. 

This is so they can gauge interest and numbers for each of the sessions, which are open for all to attend.  

They say that the consultation is still open until February 12 and further details of how to get involved are on the poster above. 

Total budget for the project, which has received substantial help from Levelling Up, is around £1.25m and work is expected to be completed by March of 2024, according to the project team.
