View more details for consultation Draft Integrated Network Map Consultation Draft Integrated Network Map Consultation Wrexham County Borough Council 23 Apr 2018 16 Jul 2018
Why are we doing this?

Wrexham County Borough Council (along with all other Welsh Local Authorities) is required under the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 to produce an Integrated Network Map setting out a 15 year programme of improvements. The public consultation is to inform the development of the Integrated Network Map will be undertaken during 2018. The feedback received from the consultation will be used to help inform the development of the Integrated Network Maps.

What do we want to know?

Wrexham County Borough Council is calling on residents take part in a consultation to give their views and suggestions for improving active travel routes within the County Borough.

 

Active travel means walking and cycling for every day journeys. This includes journeys to school, work, shops or to access services, for example health centres or leisure centres. Active travel does not include walking and cycling for recreational purposes.

 

This may be a route that you currently use for walking and cycling that could be improved to encourage greater levels of active travel or alternatively, a route which is currently missing, that, if provided would help to encourage more people to participate in active travel for every day journeys.

 

Your suggestions will be considered and will provide important information in development of the Integrated Network Map, a walking and cycling plan for the County Borough which will be submitted to the Welsh Government in August 2018.

View more details for consultation Local Housing Strategy 2018-23 Local Housing Strategy 2018-23 Wrexham County Borough Council 16 Apr 2018 28 May 2018
Why are we doing this?

Wrexham County Borough Council needs a housing strategy to respond to the challenges of providing housing and has a clear framework which sets out the forthcoming direction of housing in Wrexham County Borough.

The Local Housing Strategy 2018-2023 will provide information on current provision, demand and main influences as well as outline what is required for the next five years. The strategy will consist of three parts. A one page strategy will deliver the headlines of what we want to achieve, further detail will be provided in an accompanying booklet which is a continuation of the one page strategy and an Action Plan which will detail the actions, targets and measures of how the Council will achieve the commitments outlined in the strategy.

The Strategy may need to be reviewed during its lifetime in order to respond to any changes in  legislation, funding and resources which cannot be predicted at present.

This strategy is not a stand-alone document and reflects the priorities in Wrexham County Borough Council’s Plan. Both the Council Plan and the Local Housing Strategy support and are underpinned by a  number of themes in current legislation. We recognise that a housing strategy is not just about “bricks and mortar”. It is about regeneration, prosperity, aspirations, economic growth and supporting people to live in their homes and communities.

The Local Housing Strategy will follow three themes:

  • More Housing More Choice
  • Improving Homes and Communities
  • Better Services to improve people’s lives
What do we want to know?

We welcome your input and views into what Wrexham has defined as its objectives  to develop and directly shape housing delivery for the county borough.

We'd like to hear what you think of our new draft 'Involvement Strategy' and also find out if you have any suggestions for actions we need to take to involve people more.

View more details for consultation North Wales Armed Forces Covenant North Wales Armed Forces Covenant Wrexham County Borough Council 01 May 2018 31 Aug 2019
Why are we doing this?

The Government has committed to supporting members of the Armed Forces Community during and after service.  All 6 local authorities in North Wales collectively applied for funding from the MOD to strengthen the delivery of the covenant and help build partnerships between local authority and 3rd sector organisations.

What do we want to know?

Over the next 2 years we want to determine what the current awareness is of the Armed Forces Covenant and how we can improve its delivery.  Suggestions on making services more efficient (both internal and external of local authority) as well as known shortfalls will help everyone meet the commitments made.
