The Town Council launched its new website at the recent Annual Town Meeting. As Local Government becomes more complex, the Town Council has not been immune from changes. From May 2015, the Town Council has been required to publish information about the Town Clerk and Members, minutes of meetings and their audited statement of accounts on a website, as well as public notices and information on meetings. The Town Council’s former website was very basic and restrictive. As such a new .gov.uk site has been commissioned. Thanks must go to Mr Warren Davies for his work on the new site which is more user friendly and engaging to all users.

In addition the Town Council’s toe has dipped even further into cyber space with the creation of a facebook page www.facebook.com/llangollentowncouncil/. All of this online activity, coupled with the fact that every meeting of the Town Council is open to local residents, the press and businesses in the area, will hopefully make the work of the Town Council more transparent and available to as many constituents as possible.

Youth Representatives, the Town Council wishes to appoint up to two young individuals to providing a “youth view” on all matters before Council. As a youth representative you would be over the age of 15 but under the age of 26; and would be willing and able to represent the interests of individuals under the age of 26 who live, work or receive education or training in Llangollen, on the Town Council.

If you are interested and would like further information on the role of a Youth Representative, and how to apply, then contact the Town Clerk before the closing date of the 30th April 2016.

An fire risk assessment of the Town Hall has recently been carried out, and was approved by the Town Council in March. As such the building capacities for the individual elements of the building have been revised as follows and will take effect immediately.

Balcony 100 seated.
Auditorium 300 standing, 200 seated, 100 cabaret style
Chamber 25 conference style, 40 seated

There is no longer any need to discount the number of seats to include performers, stewards and production staff providing they are below 100. However there is a requirement to offset the number of seats/people standing for any areas used for stage extensions, furniture, equipment, bars or catering facilities placed in the auditorium. For productions taking place after the 1st April 2016, users will be required to countersign a layout plan indicating the floor space usage and subsequent number of seats allocated.
