'Vital to listen to public' on cuts in Denbighshire

The people of Denbighsire are being encouraged to have their say on spending cuts at a series of meetings.

Representatives from Denbighshire council, North Wales Police, fire, and health services and the voluntary sector will be present.

Denbighshire council leader Hugh Evans said: "It is vital that we listen to local people about local needs."

The first meeting will be held on Monday at Ysgol Glan Clwyd in St Asaph from 1900 - 2100 BST.

Community forums

Denbighshire council leader Hugh Evans said: "The last round of community forums was extremely successful and more people than ever before took the opportunity to come and speak to the panel about issues of interest or concern to them.

"It was an opportunity for the organisations to update communities about progress on local issues.

"We want to bring public services closer to the community and it is vital that we listen to local people about local needs, especially during a time where all organisations in the public sector are facing challenging times with the need to find efficiency savings."
