Why are we doing this?

Consulting on our plans to reshape Council services to meet the financial challenge and the budget proposals for 2021/22.

What do we want to know?

Budget proposals will be guided by our agreed six Council priorities which are:

  • Promoting Good Health and Wellbeing
  • Developing the Economy
  • Improving Secondary Education
  • Ensuring Everyone is Safe
  • Improving the Environment
  • Ensuring a Modern and Resilient Council

These six priorities were previously consulted upon in June/July 2019 as part of the consultation for the Council Plan 2020-22. In addition, areas of focus for the Council Priorities were consulted upon in February/March 2020 as part of the consultation for the Council Plan 2020-23. Results of the consultation showed general support for the priorities, with scores for importance of more than six for all of them.

Budget proposals will contribute to our overarching improvement plan (the Council Plan) and the six priority outcome areas. The priorities will guide our financial decisions, where appropriate and relevant.

In the first phase of the consultation process (during November-December 2020), we asked about any suggestions that you may have in order to meet the financial challenge we face in 2021-22. Now that the Welsh Government has published the provisional settlement and provisional budget for 2021-22, in this second phase of the consultation process (January 2021), we want to know whether you have any comments on the approach the Council is taking.

Queensway Alley Gating Public Space Protection Order 2021

The Safer Streets Fund is a £25m fund, available to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) in England and Wales in 2020/21.

PCCs were asked to work with partners, to design and deliver local crime prevention plans with the outcome of reducing acquisitive (theft, burglary or similar) crimes through prevention, therefore making residents feel safer.

Why the Queensway Ward?

When we looked at how we could bid for this funding to benefit residents in Wrexham it was noted there was a higher level of crime such as burglaries in this area when compared to the figures for the rest of the county borough.

Whilst action has previously been taken with police and other partners to reduce crime levels in the area the results have been mixed and are not sustainable in the long term.

In order to come up with a more sustainable approach to improve the lives of residents we took a closer look at what could be done to reduce the higher crime levels. We found that one factor we could do something about was the network of alleys in the area. These alleys are attractive to criminals who use them to enter and leave areas without bringing any undue attention to themselves or their intentions.

WCBC in exercise of its powers under Sections 59, 64 and 72 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, seeks to make a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in order to close the footpaths. Residents directly affected by the closures will be provided with keys if they wish to ensure they can continue to have access.
