A Trelawnyd and Gwaenysgor Community Development Plan was originally conceived during 2013 when the Community Council saw the need to set out a vision for the future of the two communities of Trelawnyd and Gwaenysgor. This required a fundamental change within the Community Council in developing a proactive approach to determine the future of the community. A document that would be recognised by local residents and Flintshire County Council was needed to influence local government processes and energise the local community to lobby for what it wants to achieve. The result is this Place Plan approved at the Community Council Meeting in January 2019. This was amended in 2020 with the addition of a Biodiversity Plan (S6).
