For years North Wales has been left behind by the Welsh Labour Government when they distribute funding from Cardiff. Denbighshire Council is responsible for providing many of the services we rely on every day and thanks to the lack of funding from Cardiff there is an impact on our communities. Waste and recycling, care services, and teaching are just some of the area which are suffering from a lack of funding.
The Conservative UK Government's Levelling Up funding is coming to North Wales. I have welcomed the £13.3 million coming to projects in North East Wales investing in infrastructure to improve everyday life, including regenerating town centres, upgrading local transport and investing in cultural assets. North East Wales is set to see work taking place to add new walking and cycling routes, additional electric charging points and rewilding projects on disused industrial land. The projects have so much potential for residents and visitors, providing jobs and a much needed economic boost, and improving wellbeing thanks to increased access to outdoor activity spaces.
I am working with our MP Dr James Davies so that the Vale of Clwyd gets the funding from the Conservative UK Government it lacks from the Welsh Labour Government.
