A Denbighshire of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language

What we want

Be a county where Welsh is a living, thriving language. The county will also maximise its rich cultural heritage and natural assets to support economic prosperity, skills development, and community cohesion.

What we aim to do:

  1. Play our part in achieving one million Welsh Speakers in Wales by 2050, by delivering the Welsh Language Strategy with partners and communities. This includes:
    • Ensuring everyone can access services through the Welsh language naturally, and at all stages in their lives.
    • Supporting children and families during their early years to develop confidence in using the Welsh language.
    • Support the broader use of Welsh and the celebration of Welsh culture in the community, including workplace settings.
    • Building a culture and ethos that encourages the daily use of Welsh by elected members and council staff, providing training and social opportunities to improve their confidence in using the language.
    • Grow the services available from the Welsh Language Centre in St Asaph to benefit the wider county.
  2. Develop a cultural strategy and programme of events that includes:
    • Promoting Denbighshire’s rich culture and heritage.
    • Making the best use of our great natural assets, including the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the newly proposed National Park.
  3. Working in partnership to deliver an improved and sustainable archive service for North Wales.
