People Power Works!

Congratulations to Deffro'r Ddraig for their succesful campaign to withdraw from the West Cheshire North East Wales sub-regional strategy. Both the Welsh Government and the three local authorities in North East Wales (through the Mersey Dee Alliance)decided recently not to continue with the strategy as from the 1st April 2011.

The strategy aimed to,
"create a new sub region with ‘its own distinct identity’ between north east Wales and the north west of England. The main thrust of the plan was to make north east Wales suburban to Cheshire and Merseyside."

The campaign culminated in the presentation of a 24,000 signature petition to the Welsh Parliament's Petitions Committee.
