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.

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.
