Residents are invited to their share views on walking, wheeling, and cycling along Nant Hall Road and to Prestatyn station, and hear about proposals in development for the Penisardre Road and Bridge Road junctions.
Residents are being invited to have their say on future improvements for local walking, wheeling and cycling along Nant Hall Road and the connection along the high street on to Prestatyn Station. Along the route are: Bodnant Community School, Parc Prestatyn Shopping centre and the High Street. Comments on the immediate surrounding area are also welcome.
Workshop attendees will also be given the opportunity to view and offer feedback on the evolving designs for the Penisardre Road and High Street junction, as well as the Bridge Road/Gas Works Lane junction.
Denbighshire County Council is currently working with Sustrans Cymru to understand how to make local active travel – a term used for non-motor journeys with a purpose – in the area accessible, safer and more enjoyable for the whole community, encouraging more journeys to be taken on foot or cycle instead of by car.
This project is made possible by Welsh Government’s Active Travel Fund. The Active Travel Fund is a Welsh Government fund that supports Welsh local authorities to develop, promote, and support active travel – which includes walking, wheeling, and cycling – schemes in their area. More information on the fund is available on the Welsh Government’s website on https://www.gov.wales/active-travel-fund-guidance-applicants-2023-2024-html
Sustrans, on behalf of the council, is now seeking feedback from the people that live, work and travel along Nant Hall Road who could benefit from the proposals, on what they would like to see along the new route in the future.
Councillor Barry Mellor, Denbighshire’s Lead Member for Environment and Transport said, “Encouraging active travel helps reduce car journeys, improves air quality, and offers safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists while also providing health and well-being benefits. We’d like to hear from residents what they think about the proposals and encourage people to take part in the consultation.”
Local people can share their ideas and feedback by coming to our workshops 6-8pm on Wednesday 22nd of November in Prestatyn Library or there will be a smaller pop-up on the High Street near Claire House at 10-12 on Thursday the 23rd of November. Or by visiting the project website hosted by Sustrans: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/fd984c7d592a4cf79d970704a4718871
Paper versions of the consultation can be obtained by contacting Sustrans Cymru via email: [email protected] or by writing to them at Sustrans Cymru, One Canal Parade, Dumballs Road, CF10 5BF Cardiff.
