Welsh language standards

Our council, like every other council in Wales, is expected to comply with Welsh Language Standards issued by the Welsh Language Commissioner in Wales.

Welsh Language Standards - October 2015 (PDF, 40KB)

The Standards aim to ensure a level playing field for Welsh Language services across Wales and in Denbighshire we recognise the fact that Welsh speakers have a right to access services in the language of their choice.

The Standards can be broken down into four categories: Service Delivery; Policy Making; Operational and Record Keeping. They cover a wide range of issues, including arranging meetings, answering telephones, developing a bilingual culture within the organisation, human resources and creating new policies.
