1) I Wish All Readers a Safe, Comfortable and Merry Christmas:-

For readers who are old enough to remember them, the cast of The Goon Show, which was strictly a radio comedy programme broadcast in the 1950s, always wished their listeners, “Merry Christmas and Custard!” at the appropriate time in the run-up to the festive season in those long-gone days before Climate Change and the Covid-19 Pandemic appeared on our horizons.
Thankfully, while we may not yet have fully beaten the Covid-19 bug, we are in a far better place in the run-up to Christmas this year, than we were last year. The Vaccination and Booster delivery campaigns have given us at least a head start in countering the pestilence, which is certainly something we can all celebrate even if we all do need to keep a wary eye open and moderate our personal behaviour just a little bit in order to avoid becoming a victim of it.

I hope that all readers and family members who are eligible will have had all of their jabs and booster jabs and their winter Flu jab by the time this newsletter arrives on your doormat. Those safeguards will certainly help towards having a Christmas and New Year that you will be able to remember for all of the right and enjoyable reasons and not the wrong ones.

2) Coming Down The Line:-

I hope that by now all residents and particularly those holding vehicle driving licences, are aware that an area which includes all of Buckley and some parts of Mynydd Isa and Drury is one of the 8 experimental locations chosen by the Wales Government to test out the 20mph speed limit on all estate roads and many other thoroughfares too, prior to formally legislating for that 20mph speed limit to become permanent law, nation-wide in 2023.

You may have noticed that there are pairs of wires across several local roads. They are there for the purpose of providing some baseline information of traffic volumes and speeds before the local 20mph trial period kicks in, so that some
comparisons can be made with traffic flow and speeds within the trial period, which will begin sometime in January 2022 as far as my current information tells me.

The reason for the delay between the Wales Government’s announcement of the 8 Trial Locations and the actual start here in Flintshire is simply because of the need to change roadside and road surface signs and to allow for the formal notices in the press to inform residents of the changes. Without the essential Traffic Order formalities, GoSafe, whose vans will be operating in our area, would not be able to impose fines or penalty points upon drivers they catch exceeding the 20mph speed limit.

The local Community Speedwatch team which I have co-ordinated for the past 5 or more years, has always worked on vehicle speeds of 10% plus one being okay. For example, 30mph plus 3, plus 1 adds up to 34mph. If our radar gun picks you up at that speed, we take no action, because all of us drivers get a mile or two over the legal limit at times.

However, if it shows up as 35mph, then your vehicle’s details will be recorded, checked out via DVLA and then passed on to the GoSafe office, which will send you a very polite bi-lingual letter, which, in essence, says please be a more attentive driver. No points on your licence nor cash out of your pocket. The CSW teams are not at roadside to punish you, but to try to improve driving standards and road safety for all, whether motorists, cyclists or pedestrians.

The Wales Government has decided that when the 8 trial 20mph limit areas kick in, the probability will be that so many drivers will be recorded by CSW teams all over Wales as driving over the tolerance of ten percent plus one that the GoSafe office will be hard put to keep pace with the number of advisory letters needing to be sent out. Because of that, CSW teams nation-wide will be taking no notice if you drive into view doing 25mph in the 20mph zones but will record your details and pass those to GoSafe for a letter to be sent to you if you register 26mph, which mathematically is a 25% plus 1 tolerance level.

It may be irksome, but if you are a driver, as many of us are, please do start to get into the 20mph habit in the urban areas. The present 8 locations are trial/experimental areas, but, as I set out at the beginning of this section, it is the intention of the Wales Government, after the trials and some due consultation nationwide, to eventually legislate the 20mph limit to cover town centre and estate roads nation-wide, probably by early 2023. If you happen to drive too fast into the view of any of the official Go/Safe vans, once the 20mph limits are lawfully established nation-wide, that certainly will result in you being fined and having points stuck on your licence, which none of us would feel happy about.

3) A Bank for Buckley:-

Please be assured that the battle to bring back a real Bank to the town centre is continuing and that us councillors and other interested groups will not cease our combined efforts until we have succeeded, no-matter how long it takes.

4) New Shops and Facilities for Buckley:-

Item 1 - The Old Post Office Building, 10 Brunswick Road:- Planning Application 062106. Permission was granted several weeks back for conversion into a restaurant/café. Hopefully that new facility will come alive in the near future.

Item 2 - The old NatWest Bank unit at the entrance to the Buckley Shopping Centre, which most of us still call The Precinct. Formally it is Unit 20 of the Shopping Centre. Planning Application 062892, to turn the old NatWest Bank location into a Thai Restaurant and Take-away. That application was also approved some weeks back. Just as with Item 1 above, the town now awaits the opening of the new venture.

Item 3 - Units 2 & 3 of the Buckley Shopping Centre, which used to be the Travel Agents. Planning Application 063655 is currently in process within FCC’s Planning Department. Once approved, which we local councillors hope it will be, without undue delay, it will see the opening of a Female Only Gymnasium, with children’s facilities, hopefully before Christmas.
Any reader wishing to find out more about those items can do so by interrogating the county council’s planning portal, using the references stated.

Item 4 - A resident who feels that empty commercial properties along Brunswick Road are undesirable, which view I am sure we would all agree with, has suggested that the now empty Factory Shop building could be converted, to good effect, into a Ten-Pin Bowling facility. That interesting thought has been passed on to our Town Centre and Events Manager, Mr. Andy White, to investigate the feasibility of the idea.

Item 5 - For those of you who have used Saddler’s Cobblers Shop at the Cross over the past few years it is sad to have to relate that some several weeks back, due to ill-health of the owner, that shop has now closed. However, all is not lost, as the owner of The Pink Daisy, next door, has bravely taken on the provision of services such as Shoe Repair, Key Cutting and Engraving, plus the sale of walking sticks, leather belts and souvenirs of the type which Mr. Saddler always had in stock. I am sure all residents will wish them well with the extended venture and call in to support them.

Item 6 - Some few months back, planning permission under application number 061676 was granted for a new Doggie Day Care Centre on land near Buckley Railway Station, backing on to the houses on Warren Crescent. Unfortunately, while evidently being well-attended, that enterprise has become a cause for formal noise nuisance complaints being made to county council alongside complaints of apparent breaches of the initial planning permission. A planning officer investigation is on-going, which has resulted in the recent service of a noise
abatement order by FCC upon the owners of the enterprise. When the peaceful and lawful enjoyment of the amenity of one’s own home is rudely violated, it is only right and proper that those affected should be able to rely on local authority procedures and the established laws of the land to put matters right, within a reasonable time-frame and without the action costing those effected an arm and a leg in financial terms.

Item 7 - Not actually brand new, for it has been operating for a few weeks now, but Friday 5th November saw the Official Opening by Hannah Blythen, MS, of the Groundwork/Refurbs café, recycling enterprise and community garden, in the building in town centre where the HSBC Bank once operated. My wife and I attended, as did our own local MS, MP and town Mayor, plus a handful of other dignitaries. Once again, we can only wish the enterprise well.

5) Two Down, One More to Go:-

During those years before the Covid bug struck, Buckley Town Council put on three public functions for the enjoyment of all local residents. The entire town council, from Town Clerk and Office Staff to Town/Events Manager and Councillors, all worked hard to deliver those. The Fun Day, The Fireworks Display and The Christmas Lights. Despite the ongoing Covid-19 problem, Buckley Town Council has, for this year so far, managed to put on the Fun Day, which was on 11th September and our Fireworks Display, which was on 7th November this year. It is sad to reflect that both events had to be somewhat constrained, due to the Covid issue, but each was there on the day, for your enjoyment. On that point, let me offer a heartfelt “Thank You” to all of you members of our community who attended one, or other, or maybe both of those events. It is because you do appear to support them that those events draw interest from professional funfair and entertainment groups throughout the UK.

Regrettably, after the late evening shutdown of the Fun Day rides and stalls, unknown persons either hung around or returned when nobody was around and vandalised certain stall and rides. We hope that will not prevent the proprietors of the entertainments from returning next year, when we shall ensure that such pointless, immature and antisocial behaviour cannot be repeated.

By the time you get to read this, you may well have attended the third event, on Saturday 27th November and enjoyed the fun with Santa and the formal switching on of our town’s Christmas Lights which will brighten the town for the next few weeks.

6) Buckley PCs and PCSOs:-

Several residents have spoken to me about finding it frustrating when using the 101 phone number to get in touch with the North Wales Police, because of the length of time they are kept on the line before a real live voice comes on. Given that, readers may care to take note of the following information about contacting members of the Buckley Neighbourhood Policing Team. This list was provided on 26th September 2021 and is the latest I have available.

PC2825 Natalie Williams - 07817 148417 - Natalie.Williams@nthwales.pnn.police.uk
PCSO 4406 Adelina Olaru - 07814 075613 - Adelina.Olaru@nthwales.pnn.police.uk
PCSO 3977 Ryan Thomas - 07811 713427 - Ryan.Thomas@nthwales.pnn.police.uk
PCSO 3942 Maisie Prytherch - 07974 243307 - Maisie.Prytherch@nthwales.pnn.police.uk

If you encounter any need to contact North Wales Police, other than a need for the 999 emergency call system, do give one or other of the team a call, remembering, please, that the officers do work shifts, so if the first one you try is not available do try another of the team.
While on about matters of crime and policing, do give a thought to the fact that we are now in the longer and darker evenings. Criminal elements are known to take advantage of that. If you are out for the evening, particularly if you are among the many houses without a burglar alarm, do think about leaving a light or two on, so that it is not obvious that there is nobody home. None of us would wish to come home to find we have been burgled, particularly in the run-up towards Christmas and the New Year.

7) The Footpaths Were Meant For Walking:-

My wife and I have been residents of Buckley for over thirty years. We have walked many of the registered and unregistered footpaths which exist in and around the town. Particularly so after we became Walk Leaders with the Buckley Walkabout Group. Regrettably one or two of those footpaths, because they are somewhat secluded and out of the public eye, have become focal points for anti-social behaviour, leading to public nuisance, unwanted graffiti, dog-fouling and even vandalism and thefts, much to the justifiable annoyance of adjoining residents and car owners.
After complaints from local residents, backed up by video evidence, it has become clear that the unregistered short stetch of pathway leading from Manor Drive, through Wheatley Court and on towards Home Bargains and The Precinct Carpark area has become a focal point for such antics as described in the previous paragraph. Local residents have indicated their support for closure. Given that, Cllr. Richard Jones, with my full support, has initiated the somewhat convoluted process of closing off that short stetch of unregistered pathway to stop it being used for antisocial and even criminal activities in the future. Even though the short stretch of pathway, between residents’ back gardens is not a listed footpath, any official closure will not be implemented until the small number of householders involved have agreed between themselves to legally absorb the unwanted space into their property boundaries, one way or another.
If other ward residents are having similar problems, please do get in touch with Richard or myself, so that we can see what we can do to prevent our footpaths being mis-used.

8) Buckley Railway Station:-

Network Rail have announced that in the new year they intend to double the number of trains per hour using the Wrexham-Bidston line, upon which our local railway station is one of the stops. At platform end of our station there is a ground-level pedestrian crossing which is regarded as hazardous. Their plan is to put in an “Up and Over” pedestrian crossing to enable train users to cross from one platform to the other in safety.
Initially, that new crossing will be just steps and a walkway, but in the longer term the stated intention is that there will be a lift on either side to facilitate railway users who are unable to use standard stairs. Network Rail’s stated intention, is to accommodate would-be passengers who cannot manage the stairs once they are in position, by having suitable transport available to move such passengers by road from one platform to the other as needed. They have assured us that that arrangement will continue until the lift facilities on either side are in position and available.
With thoughts of that doubling of rail traffic, there is a public Right of Way, Footpath No 38, which crosses the railway tracks some 150 yards North of the station, on a bend in the railway where visibility is not great. That footpath runs between Station Road and Little Mountain Road. My wife and I have walked it and hope that other users will do so with great care in coming months when more trains will be moving up and down the line.

9) A Growing Electoral Ward:-

My guess is that most readers of my occasional newsletters will be unaware that the Wales Government has finally published the Order which will enlarge Buckley Bistre East Electoral Ward when we get around to the next set of Town and County Elections which are due for May of 2022.
For those of you who enjoy the technical bits, the details can be found by taking a look at Statutory Instrument No. 1228 (W. 310) of 2021 LOCAL GOVERNMENT, WALES The County of Flintshire (Electoral Arrangements) (No. 2) Order 2021 EXPLANATORY NOTE.

That of course follows on from the fairly recent Local Government Boundary Review Commission which set about adjusting Ward Boundaries throughout Wales in order to try to get some evenness in population/voter numbers across all wards. For next year’s elections, there will be a fresh Voters’ Role. That should become available anywhere from mid-December to mid-January. Along with that there will be maps available showing the revised Ward Boundaries.

Certain housing estates and other properties which have previously been part of Buckley Pentrobin Ward will, from next May’s elections onward, fall into Buckley Bistre East electoral ward. With no detailed maps or official voter role lists available at present, the best way I can loosely set it out for readers is that houses on the Eastern Side of Church Road which are in the estate accessed via Butterly Drive, then North down to The Sidings, Brindle Close, Catherall Avenue, Clayton Road and some offshoots, will be listed in Buckley Bistre East Ward. The ward will also expand across to the North side of the Chester Road to take in all of the Forest Walk Estate, the old Optec Factory site, which is scheduled for housing, the White Cottage on Drury New Road and then crossing Drury New Road to take in the Old Cross Keys Farm.

10) The Oddest Pedestrian Crossing Lights in Buckley?:-

Over the past few weeks I have lost count of the number of motorists, cyclists and walkers of all ages who have questioned me or complained about the most peculiar set-up of the lights on the refreshed pedestrian crossing on Argoed Way. They have a set-up which seems to be unique and concerning, if not confusing. Where every other such crossing has traffic control lights on nearside and offside of the road as you drive or ride towards them, this set has both sets of controlling lights on the nearside, one behind the other. I have raised a question with StreetScene and Highways Officers, but so far, apart from being told that the set-up conforms to regulations and specifications, which I am not sure is correct, I am getting no answer as to the obvious question which is; if this set up is proper, how come all of the other pedestrian crossing traffic control lights are set differently, because simple logic says they cannot all be right and proper. I can assure those who have raised the matter with me that I shall not stop challenging the appropriate county officers until I have a sensible answer and hopefully some re-positioning of the traffic control lights so that they match all the others around the town.

11) COP26 - Much Hot Air and Little Else:-

I have been around long enough to have watched the various COP (Conference of the Parties) gatherings over the years. Sadly, all I have ever seen coming out of each has been the kicking down the road ahead of the thorny problem of getting rid of our atmospheric CO2 and Methane Loadings which are derived from industrial and personal uses of Fossil Fuel in all of its forms. We need electricity sourced from the renewables of Wind, Solar and Ocean Tides. We now need, due to the continual failure of Politicians and Industrialists of previous years, to rise rapidly to the challenge, to see clearly mapped out, some serious and drastic changes away from King Coal, Oil and Gas, at National, Corporate and Household levels.

However, what we do not need is what we are presently seeing, spurious plans of Mitigation, Capture and Offsetting which are all attempts to ensure that for Nations and Corporations, it is just “Business as Usual” by any other name.
Take the DRAX Power Organisation, which operates several of UK’s Power Stations. For many years they burned millions of tonnes of coal in their power stations. Around 2010 the company decided that using coal was no longer a long-term option. Unfortunately, their chosen alternative was a shift to “Biomass” which basically means wood pellets. Part of that decision had to be that by making that change the company became entitled each year to claim Renewables Obligation Certificate (ROC) Payments and Contract for Difference (CfD) Payments from Government. In 2020 it claimed and was paid £490million of the former and £342million of the latter payments which is money gathered from our Tax Payments, which form the Public Purse. Both together made a total of £832million for that one year. The values are changeable depending upon how much weight of Biomass is burned each year.

To obtain the millions of tonnes of wood pellets required each year, DRAX set up contracts with several nations and states around the world, as far apart as the USA, Canada, Latvia and Estonia. In 2017 alone DRAX burned 6.8million tonnes of wood pellets, derived from 13.5million tonnes of raw wood. In 2020 that grew to the burning of 7.37million tonnes of pellets derived from at least 14million tonnes of raw wood.
There is no way that burning wood on this scale can ever be sustainable. According to the US Southern Environmental Law Centre: “Supplying the U.K.’s demand for wood pellets in 2016 alone required harvesting approximately 303 square km of forests in the south-eastern U.S. At this level of demand, in a little over one year the U.K. will have harvested an area the size of the New Forest in England (376 sq. km, or more than 50,000 Wembley stadiums) for wood pellet production.”

It is claimed that biomass is a “low carbon” or “carbon neutral” fuel, meaning that carbon emitted by biomass burning won’t contribute to climate change. But in fact, there have been credible scientific research studies over recent years which set out that biomass burning power plants emit 150% the CO2 of coal, and 300 – 400% the CO2 of natural gas, per unit of energy produced. These facts are stated as not being controversial.
The question all of us should be asking of this present Government is just what are they up to? In treating DRAX favourably, they are providing substantial amounts of public money each year to support a company which is failing to reduce its CO2 emissions. Not only that, but also while destroying substantial areas of established forests world-wide, along with the habitats of those forests which provided home for everything from bugs to Brown Bears. All of that at a time when the population of Earth needs every single forest leaf we presently have and a whole lot more, if future generations are to stand half a chance of living comfortable lives by or after 2050.

12) An Environmental Success:-

A new project is set to pave the way for £1 billion of investment in restoring England’s degraded saltmarshes, in order to counter climate change, support wildlife and reduce flood risk.
In a natural state, these important coastal wetland habitats – through build-up of sediment and vegetation – trap and bury carbon at a greater rate, per area, than terrestrial habitats such as forests or peatlands. However, since the 1800s, large areas of saltmarsh around the UK and world-wide have been drained, to reclaim land from the sea for agriculture, areas of fresh industrial development or coastal flood defences – resulting in massive loss of habitat and biodiversity.

A partnership of scientists, charities and financial experts, led by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH), has secured a £100,000 grant from the Government’s new Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund in order to progress the project.
UKCEH wetland scientist Annette Burden, principal investigator of the new project, explains: “Saltmarshes can play an effective role in countering climate change by storing and capturing large amounts of carbon that would otherwise be in the atmosphere as CO2, contributing to global warming. Sustainably managing these ‘blue carbon’ habitats will protect and enhance the benefits they provide, embracing nature-based solutions to the climate emergency.”

Some 27 schemes across England, including the Saltmarsh Carbon Code project, have been awarded up to £100,000 each in the first round of the £10 million Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund, provided by Defra and the Environment Agency.

13) News From Flintshire County Council:-

1) Mr. Colin Everett, who has been Chief Executive Officer for the county council for the past 16 years, retired from that position on the 31st
October just passed. He has been a stalwart champion of this county during those years, which have not been easy ones, given the steadily dwindling funding from the Wales Government along with an increased work burden such as duties under the Welfare of Future Generations Act, to name but one.

Following a properly formal and rigorous selection process with several strong candidates appearing the council agreed that the best candidate was Mr. Neal Cockerton, who has been working for the council for a good few years and has overseen much of the Organisational Change carried out under Colin Everett. Mr. Cockerton formally took up the position of Chief Executive Officer as of 1st November of this year.

2) Our new CEO’s biggest looming problem is likely to be how the authority produces its legally required balanced budget for the financial year of 2022 to 2023. When Stage 1 of our Annual Budget internal process was completed in July of this year, the preliminary indications were that the county would need an additional budget requirement of some £16.750million if it were to be able to deliver what officers and councillors believed was required. Since that date, there has been the announcements from Westminster of likely increases in National Insurance contributions from employers, which will inevitably cause that foreseeable shortfall to rise significantly, perhaps to the level of some £18million.

There are of course ongoing dialogues with the Welsh Local Government Association and the Wales Government itself, in the run-up towards the 21st December on which date the Wales Government is expected to announce its proposed Provisional Settlement figures for County Councils for the financial year of 2022-2023.

What is ominous for every resident is that the scuttlebutt words drifting up from Cardiff suggest an expectation down there that local authorities should be looking to increase next year’s Community Charge by something in the order of at least 5.75%, as a start towards closing the gap. I have yet to meet a single county councillor who approves of that level of increase for the coming financial year.

3) Among other items county council hopes to be able to afford improvements in School and Library buildings, Social Care Services, Adaptations to Foster Carers’ Homes, to see to the replacement of our public area CCTV analogue system, which is no longer fit for purpose and to decarbonise our vehicle fleet, to list but a few of its aims and aspirations, each of which carries a cost tag.

4) The county also intends to allocate 50k per year from its capital programme to encourage owners of listed/historic buildings to properly preserve and maintain them in the interests of future generations

5) One of the major items envisaged is the Joint Archive Facility, for Denbighshire and Flintshire, which will see an entirely new and purpose-designed building rising on the open ground next to Theatre Clwyd, where once the Phase Four offices of FCC stood. The building will contain both the physical archives and a new service operations unit. Currently that combined venture has funding available of some £10.363million, with £5.3million coming from Grant Funding, £3.028million from FCC and £2.035million from Denbighshire County Council. Expressions of interest for funding are due to be submitted by the end of November 2021 with decision on the outcome expected in March 2022.

One of the reasonable questions I have been asked about this particular enterprise is just why will we need such a building in years ahead, when there is the current almost frenetic drive to digitalise everything and stack and store records “Up in the Clouds Systems” in the IT world and no longer in on paper in files needing a great deal of space and manual handling? I shall leave that to the Archivists and IT Technicians to answer.

14) Public Sector Digital Transformation:-

In June of this year, The UK Authority, in conjunction with the research organisation NUTANIX, organised a Think-Tank which drew together acknowledged Digital Leaders in the Public Sector for the purpose of looking ahead. The gathering, a virtual one of course, was on a non-attributable basis, which provided an opportunity for them all to share their individual perspectives on future opportunities and challenges for the Digitalisation of Public Services within Society as a whole. Particularly, as industry, business and the daily life of individuals begins to settle down into whatever shape “normal” may take once the world has really got on top of the Covid19 Pandemic.

Employers have found that staff have reacted in different ways to the need to work from home. Many employees have appreciated the removal of the daily commute and found new flexibility in how they use their time. However, others have struggled to create any decent workspace at home or missed the creativity and social interactions of the office.

There have been reports of significant numbers of employees at all levels becoming far more productive as a result of working at home. However, against that, there have been many reports of employees feeling that they have been losing out on the informal elements of collaborations - often a great source of new ideas and solutions to problems - which has been reduced by the loss of face-to-face contact in the workplace.

What seems to have been made clear is that there is going to be no room for any “One size fits all!” solution. That is because the Think Tank
contributors were clear and agreed in their view that work is something you do, not a place you go to. Therefore a hybrid approach to Digitalisation will be required, based upon whatever arrangement is best suited to deliver the individual and corporate results required. One which also considers the health and wellbeing of employees.

What also loomed large in the discussions was the shape of public sector meetings in years ahead. The legal requirement for physically present meetings was waived at the height of the Pandemic. However, technically that was lifted in May of 2021 although legal challenges were entered to allow councils to continue operating via meetings arranged for a mix of face-to-face and virtual presence, including members of the public.
The Think-Tank members were of the view that Councils are still learning the lessons of how best to create Digital Transformation and Inclusion. That is a view with which I can fully agree.

If any reader has a viewpoint on this topic, please do let me know, using the contact information at the foot of the page. so that I can feed those views into the ongoing debate at local council level.

15) Not Us Gov! Honest!!:-

A few years ago, the Wales Government set up a body called “The Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales” so that pay rates for us councillors were set for us and not by us. When that happened, us councillors breathed a sigh of relief and have happily accepted the Panel’s decisions over recent years. Currently a back-bench councillor such as I am receives an annual fully taxable Basic Allowance of £14,368:00. There are additional responsibilities payments for Chairs of Committees, Cabinet Members, and the Leader of Council.
It is now being made public that the IRP are recommending that as of May of 2022 that Basic Allowance should rise by some 16.9% or £2,428.20, with the additional responsibilities payments rising accordingly.

Let me assure readers that I, along with every single fellow county councillor with whom I have discussed this news, feel aghast at the thought of us pocketing a 16.9% pay-rise when all of our hard-working Public Sector employees, Nurses, Teachers, Care Workers, Police, Fire Brigade, Ambulance Staff and others are being offered just a bare 1 or 2%. I am confident that all county councillors are looking to see if we can refuse the intended pay rise. If we cannot, many of us are determined to allocate the increase, less tax, to support local Community Interest Organisations (CIOs) or formal Charities.
Serving the local community - Yes! Money-Grubbing - No!!
