County Conversation is our campaign to find out what's most important to you and help us to make sure we focus on the right areas.

Phase 1

Phase 1 of County Conversation took place during the summer of 2016, we asked people about their long-term future aspirations for their communities. We received a range of views, with consistent messages emerging from across the County. This coupled with statistics helped us to draft the following list of themes that are important to you:

  • Access to services
  • Active lifestyles
  • Education
  • Employment and business opportunities
  • Housing
  • Entertainment Venues and Events
  • Integrated Health and Social Care Services
  • Natural Environment

You can read the full details of what we found out from phase 1 in our County Conversation phase 1 report.

Phase 2

Phase 2 took place at the end of 2016. We asked people to consider the list of themes identified in Phase 1, and choose a level of importance for each aspiration. We received over 1500 responses from residents of Denbighshire and were able to identify key priorities to take forward.

New objectives and well-being statement

All the feedback received over phase 1 and 2 of County Conversation has been reviewed and the following Corporate Priorities have been agreed by our new Council in October 2017:

  • Everyone is supported to live in housing that meets their needs
  • Communities are connected and have access to goods and services locally, online and through good transport links
  • The Council works with people and communities to build independence and resilience
  • An attractive and protected environment, supporting well-being and economic prosperity
  • A place where younger people will want to live and work and have the skills to do so

Our well-being statement explains how these objectives should improve the well-being of our communities.

Our Corporate Plan is guided by our corporate priorities.

Denbighshire County Council legally must publish Well-being Objectives (under the Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015) and Improvement Objectives (under the Local Government Measure 2009). The priorities within our Corporate Plan serve the purpose of being these objectives.
