A PUBLIC meeting has been held to answer queries and concerns regarding this year's Llangollen Eisteddfod.

Representatives from both the volunteer team behind the festival and co-promoters Cuffe and Taylor hosted a meeting to answer and address all questions covering subjects such as traffic management, noise alleviation measures, and access to the site.

With the Eisteddfod starting on June 18, the public meeting took place at Llangollen Town Hall on Tuesday, June 4.

To guide visitors in and out of the Eisteddfod carpark via Dinbren and Tower Road, a one-way clearway system will be in place to control traffic throughout the event, controlled further by manned traffic lights.

Parking passes will be available to purchase and organisers are strongly encouraging visitors get one as soon as possible.

Regarding the concern of parked cars blocking roads, Denbighshire County Council has been consulted. In this situation, they would help with enforcement to ensure traffic runs as smoothly as possible.

Dan Cuffe has also assured residents that the company is well-experienced in dealing with traffic concerns throughout planned events. 

A road traffic map has been created clearly highlighting which roads can be accessed by cars and pedestrians and which car parks are available, including for accessibility.

These maps will be distributed to all Llangollen residents and business owners soon with the full details explained.

Noise pollution generated from the music shows, particularly during the evening, was also addressed. A sound management company will be present to monitor levels of sound located just outside the Pavilion to ensure residents are not being affected.

Dan will also be in attendance at the first concert - Bryan Adams - to ensure the appropriate measures are being put in place.

This year's festival will take a different format and welcome a new host of artists, appealing to an audience that ensures the Eisteddfod not only survives in the years to come, but thrives.
