Plaid Cymru have hailed their results in the Denbighshire County Council Elections as a significant step forward for the party in the area.
The Party increased its number of councillors compared to their 2012 result making particularly significant gains in both Denbigh and Ruthin towns.
Plaid Cymru won three of the five county council seats representing Denbigh and Henllan, and have also secured 6 councillors on Denbigh Town Council.
Cllr Arwel Roberts who was re-elected as Plaid Cymru Councillor for Rhuddlan said, “This is a positive result for Plaid Cymru in Denbighshire. All bar three of our county council candidates were elected. Our Councillors are rooted in their communities and will make sure that their areas get the strongest possible voice on Denbighshire County Council.”
Llyr Gruffydd, Plaid Cymru AM for North Wales said, “This result shows Plaid Cymru making important inroads in both rural and urban parts of the county. The combination of experienced Plaid councillors being returned and the election of a number of new Plaid representatives offers an exciting combination both for the party and the people they serve.
“These elections were about front line services and who will fight to secure that our communities continue to be vibrant and welcoming, and when people had the opportunity to vote for Plaid Cymru they did so confident that Plaid Cymru was the best party to represent their interests.”
