Clwyd South Levelling Up projects making progress

In recent weeks, the Council’s Clwyd South Levelling Up programme has been making great progress towards the completion of some of its projects.

The Clwyd South Levelling Up programme is an investment by the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund that was secured through a joint application between Denbighshire County Council and Wrexham County Borough Council for the Clwyd South Constituency. The application was supported by Simon Baynes MP. £3.8 million was allocated to Denbighshire to invest in the communities of Llangollen, Llantysilio, Corwen and surrounding areas.

Two of our Llangollen-based schemes have been gaining momentum. Our Plas Newydd project has made great progress with work to widen the path, install a new handrail down in the Dell and improvements to the site’s viewing area having been completed.


Our Wenffrwd project aims to improve town links to and from the Wenffrwd Nature Reserve and the Health Centre and canal. The works have started to connect the canal tow path and nature reserve and are expected to be completed in late October 2023. A weekly park run has been established, utilising the path connecting the Health Centre and Wenffrwd, which is proving to be popular!


We are also pleased to see that our Corwen-based projects have made significant progress, starting with the Corwen railway platform canopy. This project, delivered by the Llangollen Railway Trust, has now been completed and we are pleased to see the railway open to the public, receiving over 20,000 passengers in its first 3 months!

External refurbishment works to protect a key heritage building, Canolfan Llys Owain (former HSBC bank), have commenced as part of a project to improve Corwen’s town centre infrastructure. This portion of the project is being delivered by Cadwyn Adfywio and is expected to be completed by winter 2023.

Initial works have also started on the high street and Green Lane Car Park in Corwen, with these due to re-commence at the end of October 2023.

Further information about these projects can be found on the Denbighshire County Council website:
