Why are we doing this?

Wrexham County Borough Council provides many services to you, whether you live here, work here or are just visiting, such as: schools, waste collection, social care, council housing, planning services, roads, museums, country parks and trading standards.

Our vision for the future is that all the people that live here are supported to fulfil their potential, prosper and achieve a high standard of well-being.  We will be a strong and inclusive community leader to help make this happen. 

Our Council Plan

This Council Plan outlines what our priorities will be up to March 2023 to help us achieve our vision and to contribute to Wales’ Well-being Goals.  These are the services we will be focussing most on improving and which we believe will have the most benefit to you if we get right.   

Our other important services will still be delivered but details about those will be included within our internal business and service plans.  We will also be continuing to work on key areas that underpin all of our work across the Council – areas such as anti-poverty, equality and the Welsh Language.

Our six priorities are:

  • Developing the economy
  • Ensuring a modern and resilient council
  • Ensuring everyone is safe
  • Improving secondary education
  • Improving the environment
  • Promoting good health and well-being

Tell us what you think

It is proposed that these six priorities will be our priorities for the next three years, therefore we are keen to hear your opinions about the focus of each of these priorities to make sure your views are taken into account as we finalise our plan.  We would also like to know what you think about the Council Plan as a whole and if you think it will help us to deliver our vision that all the people that live here are supported to fulfil their potential, prosper and achieve a high standard of well-being.  This consultation is open from 4th February to 17th March.

What happens next? 

 Once this consultation closes, the results will be analysed and the findings used to finalise our Council Plan 2020 – 2023 which will be presented to Council in May 2020 for approval. We will ensure that we feedback to you the results of the consultation at that time.

Why are we doing this?

The Council is undertaking this consultation in order to understand the experiences of local Welsh speakers when accessing council services in Welsh and how the Welsh language is used on a daily basis. For this consultation we want to gather information and views from Welsh learners and pupils in our Welsh schools to get a broader picture of how the language is being used in Wrexham.  We will run this consultation again in 2021 and 2022 to compare the findings.

Why are we doing this?

Wrexham Council currently has a dog control and dog fouling PSPO which cover the entire County Borough. It is due for renewal as it ends on 1st March 2020. The intention is to renew and update the current PSPO covering the County Borough.

The existing dog fouling requirements for owners to remove their dog’s faeces forthwith from public areas, the exclusion zones for dogs on bowling greens, marked sports pitches and  play areas (apart from owners with assisted dogs) , the dogs on a lead by direction which allows an Authorised Officer to instruct owners to place and keep a dog on a lead when necessary, dogs to be on a lead on public roads and pavements and to be kept on a lead around defined areas of parks such as visitor centres and car parks will all continue.  

In addition it is proposed to include a condition that requires a person who is in control of a dog, to be carrying an appropriate receptacle or bag to remove their dog’s faeces forthwith.

We are therefore contacting you as part of the required consultation process, we encourage you to look at the prohibitions suggested in the enclosed order and would be interested in your views on the matter.

The consultation period will be open on the 30 January 2020 and will close on the 27 February 2020, therefore please ensure any representations are made by this date.

If you would like to provide the feedback to the proposed Order in writing, stating the reasons for your views or objections, email for the attention of: joanne.rodgers@wrexham.gov.uk  or by post to The Chief Officer Environment and Technical Services Department, Wrexham County Borough Council, The Guildhall, Wrexham, LL11 1RA
