Denbighshire Council Invites Residents, Businesses and Visitors to Engage in Four Great Highways, Llangollen Consultation

Care about the future of Llangollen?  Have  your say!

Llangollen’s residents, businesses and visitors are being invited to take part and have their say on a project aimed at promoting and enhancing the four great ‘highways’ of Llangollen: the Llangollen Canal and World Heritage Site, the former Ruabon to Barmouth railway line, the River Dee and Thomas Telford’s historic route, the A5 Holyhead Road.

The aim is to improve the visitor experience and increase the amount of time people choose to spend in the area. Proposed works include providing landscape and engineering improvement works to enhance accessibility and biodiversity, as well as making it easier for visitors to understand what is available in the area and how to find it.

4 key areas have been identified:

  1. Wharf
  2. Access points to the Wharf, Railway and Lower Dee Mill Park
  3. Lower Dee Mill Park
  4. Signage & Wayfinding (including visitor information in car parks)


The project has been funded as part of Round 1 of UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund (LUF). Denbighshire County Council has been successful in their joint application with Wrexham County Borough Council for the Clwyd South Constituency.

The Levelling Up Fund is intended to invest in infrastructure that improves everyday life across the UK. The fund supports town centre and high street regeneration, local transport projects, and cultural and heritage assets.

The Levelling Up funding allocated to Denbighshire in Round 1 amounts to £3.8m and will benefit the communities of Llangollen, Llantysilio, Corwen and surrounding areas.

There are a number of exciting projects being delivered in these communities, and the Four Great Highways in Llangollen is one of these projects.
