Denbighshire County Council wishes to reassure residents and businesses in Denbigh, Llangollen, Ruthin and Rhyl that no final decision has been taken on draft proposals to encourage active travel in these towns during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, and that residents and businesses are warmly invited to have their say.
The Welsh Government has provided funding to local authorities for introducing measures that help enable people to maintain social distancing in public places, and to encourage residents to walk and cycle safely. The funding allows councils to bring in temporary measures to support this.
Plans have been drawn up for four of the county’s towns and many people have shared their views on social media and other platforms about the proposals. The Council will be consulting with town businesses and residents on the proposals before making a final decision.

Councillor Brian Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “Keeping people safe is a key priority for the Council and the Council believes the proposed measures will help people feel safe when visiting our town centres and encourage them to stay longer. I would therefore encourage business and residents to take part in the consultation period that is now underway”.
