THE latest in a round of meetings engaging local communities in the future of Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and the Llangollen Canal is to be held on Monday.
Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal Project is an ambitious partnership of British Waterways, Northern Marches Cymru, Wrexham County Borough Council and Cadwyn Clwyd – a direct result of public consultation on the successful World Heritage Site bid.
The project is focusing on the communities of Chirk Bank, Chirk, Pentre, Froncysyllte, Trevor, Garth, Pontcysyllte, Llangollen, Pentrefelin and Llantysilio, engaging with individuals, businesses, schools and interest groups.
Initiatives will range from community arts projects through to heritage and biodiversity volunteer work.
Piers Warburton, community development officer, said: “When the project ends in 2011, we want to leave a healthy community legacy based on the abundant heritage and wide biodiversity of this history rich area.”
Monday’s meeting will take place in Llangollen Town Hall from 7-9pm.
