Vast Opposition to Development Plans in Sir Ddinbych

A few weeks ago we reported on Denbighshire Country Council's development plan to build 800 new houses in and around Llanelwy (St Asaph). Understandably, this proposal continues to be hugely unpopular among local residents and also those from near towns and villages such as Trefnant, Dinbych, and Rhuthun which are also likely to be hit.

And unless the proposals genuinely help the needs of young local residents get on the property ladder and stay in the area, then the Council's plans will continue to face huge opposition from the vast majority of people in and around Gogledd Ddwyrain Cymru - apart from some relatively well-off Cheshire and Merseyside commuters of course.

Thankfully, anyone wanting to register their opposition can now do so through Cymuned's website. Simply go to and fill out the online form.

As the page states, this plan "would be destructive of both rural and urban communities as well as massively damaging to the Welsh language in the North-East of Wales, because it fails to take local need into account as its main objective, and instead concentrates on providing expensive housing for the open market."
