Why are we doing this?

To engage with the public on the proposed new strategy for Wrexham County Borough's Trees and Woodlands.

What we found out

The results of the consultation demonstrated that trees are an important part of the landscape and the environment for the people of Wrexham County Borough.

81% agreed with the Strategy’s overall aim “That we have a sustainably managed and protected and diverse tree population with sufficient canopy cover to benefit and meet the needs of all who live, work in, and visit Wrexham County Borough”.

81% thought that the Strategy’s objectives will ensure the Strategy’s aim is achieved.

94% thought that we are right to take a modern approach to tree management where the whole tree population is managed as essential infrastructure and where we focus on overall canopy cover, population structure and diversity.

53% thought that the Council should only prune trees when they are touching property or causing an obstruction.

What difference has it made?

The new Tree & Woodland Strategy adopted in February 2016, includes an action plan to –

Increase in tree canopy cover in urban areas to 20% by 2026, using a diverse range of tree species.

  • Target areas of lowest tree cover for increase in tree planting.
  • Review and improve tree protection process (TPO’s).
  • Integrate tree strategy goals into new Local Development Plan.
  • Encourage greater community engagement in the care of trees and improve understanding of value of trees.

Policies have also been put in place to ensure that the Council manages its own trees and woodlands in accordance with best practice.

Why are we doing this?
Wrexham County Borough Council is working hard to ensure efficient and effective services by making significant budget savings, whilst prioritising the most vulnerable.  To do this we are having a conversation with local people so that we can understand whether the services we are offering are best meeting your needs.
What we found out
The purpose of this consultation was to understand whether the services offered by Wrexham County Borough Council are meeting the needs of the public, in order to assist the Council in determining which services to promote over the forthcoming year.  It asked people how important they considered various services to be, and also how satisfied they were with current provision in that service area.  As well as a survey, there was also a consultation event held with invited members of the public and representatives of Town and Community Councils.
What difference has it made?
The results of the consultation were used to feed into a Members workshop in early March 2015, where Members were considering performance targets for different service areas in the forthcoming year.  Heads of Departments have also used the results to help them consider which services may need more focus on for the forthcoming year.

Why are we doing this?
The Perfect Engagement event came out of 12 month’s work of engaging with people who use Substance Misuse Services in Wrexham County Borough. This event was service users’ idea. The aim of the event is to give people who use Substance Misuse Services in Wrexham an opportunity to talk about their experience of using these services. However, a second and arguably more important aim is to feedback the outcome of these discussions to providers and commissioners of the services at the event on the same day.
What we found out

KEY RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Aftercare support and services need to be developed as a matter of urgency

  • ‘Out of hours’ support also needs developing as a matter of urgency

  • The need for service providers to complete extensive paperwork needs to be reviewed and revised to free up more time for professionals to engage with service users

 These 3 key priority recommendations arose out of a consensus reached by service users, service providers and service commissioners during the event.

What difference has it made?

New services have been provided at Ty Croeso, the recovery movement is a model of success in Wales, service user involvement embedded in service delivery.
