Planning for the future: Council Plan 2023-2028

Why are we doing this?: 

Wrexham County Borough Council provides many services to you, whether you live here, work here or are just visiting, such as: schools, waste collection, social care, council housing, planning services, roads, museums, country parks, trading standards. The council also  supports local community and economic development.

Our vision for the future is that all the people that live here are supported to fulfil their potential, prosper and achieve a high standard of well-being.  We will be a strong and inclusive community leader to help make this happen. 

Our Council Plan 2023-2028

Our new Council Plan will outline our priorities for the next five years to help us achieve our vision, to contribute to Wales’ well-being goals, and to ensure that everybody is treated fairly.  We want to identify specific outcomes on which we can focus and against which we can measure progress.  These are the outcomes which we believe will be of most benefit to our communities.

Our Council Plan is our key strategic document for the next five years and will inform decisions about how we allocate financial and other resources.  Our other important services will still be delivered and details about those will be included within our internal business and service plans.

What do we want to know?: 

In order to develop draft priorities for our new Council Plan 2023-2028, we have looked at a range of evidence including:

  • Published data and statistics, for example, Census 2021 data
  • What we know about our communities from local evidence and research about people's health and well-being*
  • Feedback from involvement with our communities over the past year
  • Progress against our existing council priorities and other work areas
  • Welsh Government priorities

Our six draft priorities, on which we want to focus our work for 2023-2028 are:

  • Developing and Decarbonising our Environment
  • Developing the Economy
  • Ensuring a Modern and Resilient council
  • Ensuring Wrexham is a Fairer and Safer Place
  • Improving Education and Learning (with a focus on secondary education)
  • Promoting Health and Well-being (with a focus on social services and good mental health)

We are keen to involve you in the shaping of our Council Plan and would like to know what you think.

As a strong and inclusive community leader, we want to ensure that all people who live in Wrexham County Borough are supported to achieve their potential, prosper and achieve a high standard of well-being. 

This consultation will be open from 1st February to 14th March 2023.

We can be contacted by email (, or by post (3rd Floor Annexe, The Guildhall, Wrexham LL11 1AY).. We welcome any questions, comments and feedback.

What happens next? 

Once this consultation closes, the results will be analysed and the findings used to develop and finalise our Council Plan 2023 – 2028, which will be presented to Council in May 2023 for approval. We will ensure that we feedback to you the results of the consultation at that time.
