Lorries and Penyffordd village

Why do we have lorries coming through the village if we have a bypass?  I've previously queried why lorries need to come through the village to no avail.

Here's some residents in Rhyl who are fed up with lorries and a rat run. We in Chester Rd, Penyffordd have a similar issue if not quite as bad. Our's polarized to early morning and teatime.

Why can't we have " except for access" ?

Skips News

After Flintshire County Council backing down over closing recycling centres ( pressure from WAG to cut down on recycling centres) I hear Buckley recycling is to be closed for about 2 months next January February 2017 whilst modifications are made to upgrade centre.

Flintshire not getting its proper share of Welsh funding

Interesting session on the continuous austerity faced by Flintshire County Council at Broughton library this evening. Despite being the 6th/22 largest county in Wales, Flintshire is 19th in reciept of funding capita per head of population. Newport for example is similar to Flintshire in terms of population but last year received £29million more pounds in funding. Furthermore, we pay more business rates and tax as a county and get nowhere near as much money as this back.
After cutting back as much as it can (e.g. reducing senior management posts and support by nearly 50%, middle management posts by around 25% and admin/clerical staff by 40%, sharing buildings and services with other authorities), the council is currently making a case to have its funding increased in the coming year.

postscript: In the comments below in reply to Cllr David Walker's comments I mention the North / South Wales divide.
This is what Google tells me:-

Another day another lorry hits Penyffordd railway bridge

The Daily Post reports that a lorry hit the above bridge at 8.50 am this morning. This usually means cessation of trains between Bidston and Wrexham whilst safety work is carried out.

Perhaps some investment in extra signage, etc. Don't use GPS, my self I'm a Google streets person if I don't know where I'm going, saying that it must use GPS.

Do lorry drivers use GPS? If so are low bridges indicated?

Many of them have tracking systems so it can be seen when they are speeding.

Effluent tanks up the Vounog have gone.

Penyffordd was being used as a base to keep effluent for spraying on the fields somewhere north of the village. ie. Broughton

Why not have effluent holding tanks at Broughton?  :)
Then they wouldn't need to come through the village.

They're digging up the swings

next to the Millstone.
Big job broke out.

Remembrance Sunday at Penyffordd district.

Penyffordd residents remembering those who died in the wars. A very good turnout for the procession through the village. It would appear we could not get Buckley Band as part of the procession. Well done to Paul Blackwell and mate who fixed loud speakers to their van together with the appropriate band music played through the loud speakers leading the procession. Cllrs Cindy Hinds, David Williams and John Martin amongst those in the procession.

Your chance to have a say in the future of Penyffordd, Penymynydd, Dobshill

Below is a link to a questionnaire asking you ( a resident of Penyffordd ward ) to have your say on the future of our community. As far as I am aware its open to all family members.

For efficiency purposes its best if the online questionnaire is used. You will however be receiving a copy of the questionnaire through your letter box in the next week.

Excerpts below.

What is the Questionnaire  for?

This questionnaire has been prepared by volunteers from the village together with the Community Council. Everyone in the village needs to speak up to help to influence how the village will change over the next 15 years.

The worst case scenario could see over 750 extra houses in the village by 2030.
Flintshire County Council are preparing a Local Development Plan (LDP) which defines how the towns and villages in the County will grow between now and 2030. It will decide:

- how many houses are needed in the County
- how those houses will be distributed around the towns and villages across the County
- which plots of land will be available for building in each settlement
- policies which will instruct planners and developers in the way developments are built
As part of the process Flintshire C.C. are consulting with people to get their opinions about the proposals. We will let you know when each of these consultations are ready to be answered.
At the same time as Flintshire’s LDP, we are preparing a Community Development Plan (CDP) which
contains details of how our villagers want Penyffordd/Penymynydd/Dobshill to look in 2030. This CDP
will tell planners, developers and other stakeholders what is important to our community.

Bonfire Night

Doing turn way business. Queue to get in is 3 wide, 200 yards long. Half way up Chester Rd. Never seen so many people. Bonfire appears to have been kept to a certain size. We've had a mini bonfire this afternoon burning off the surplus.

A New Community Council Notice Board

is to be sited at the entrance to the Well House estate next to the post box. David informs me. Notice boards are a necessary lifeline for those who haven't got internet. Not sure if the one outside the old post office is up to date. There was an issue with the keys.........
