We’ve been busy working on a plan that will shape the present and future of Wrexham County Borough, and we want to thank you for the ideas and opinions you’ve given us so far.
How have people been involved so far?
In the autumn 2016 you told us what you want Wrexham to be, and gave us some ideas for how you thought those things might happen. We used what you told us (along with other data and information) to produce a draft of Wrexham’s Well-being Assessment.
In early 2017, we asked you to let us know whether the Assessment we had produced really pinpointed Wrexham’s big issues, challenges, strengths and weaknesses.
How are we using what people have told us?
Now that we have your views on this draft of the Assessment, we are working hard to make sure that the final version reflects what you’ve told us.
Once we have done that, we’ll publish the final version of Wrexham’s Well-being Assessment, and will then use that to start developing a plan for Wrexham County Borough that will set out how everyone will work together to create ‘The Wrexham We Want’.
We will keep talking to you as we develop this plan, to make sure that we can all work together to create a Wrexham where we all want to live – both now and in the future.
How can you stay involved?
We’d like to thank you for your thoughts and ideas so far, and for the time you’ve taken to help with this.
Your voice matters.
The Future Generations Act
There are lots of plans. Does Wrexham really need another one?
Well, yes. The Wrexham We Want is about creating a place where we all want to live – both now, and in the future.
Along with the rest of the UK, we’re facing some big challenges in Wales. Things like poverty, economic issues, an ageing population and climate change.
So the Well-Being of Future Generations Act is a new law that aims to get public services and communities working together to tackle these challenges and improve the long-term future of Wales.
It covers things like employment, the environment, health, equalities, communities, culture, Welsh language, and our impact around the world.
Making it happen
Wrexham Public Services Board (Wrexham PSB) is the driving force behind this plan.
We’re a partnership made up of lots of organisations that provide services across the County Borough.
For example the Council, health services, fire and rescue services, Natural Resources Wales, the police, probation services, Glyndŵr University, Coleg Cambria, AVOW and Welsh Government.
We want to work with local people to develop this long-term plan for Wrexham, and help put the Future Generations Act into practice.
