Yn anffodus bu farw’r Cynghorydd Brian Blakeley ddydd Gwener, 28 Hydref 2022 Councillor Brian Blakeley sadly passed away on Friday, 28 October 2022 COUNCIL PAYS TRIBUTE FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF COUNCILLOR BRIAN BLAKELEY Denbighshire County Council has paid tribute to Councillor Brian Blakeley, who sadly passed away in the early hours of Friday morning. Brian, who represented the Rhyl Tynewydd Ward, was a member of the Communities Scrutiny and Planning committees and had served as a county councillor since 2003. He was Chair of the Council 2014 – 2015; Chair of the Partnerships Scrutiny Committee 2012 – 2013 and Chair of the Environment and Regeneration Scrutiny Committee 2008 – 2011. He was also previously the Council’s Homelessness Champion. Councillor Arwel Roberts, Chairman of Denbighshire County Council, said: “This is a tremendously sad day as we hear about Brian’s passing. “He was very much a champion of his local community and was vocal in his work to improve the quality of life for residents in his ward and in the wider Rhyl and Denbighshire communities. He was often seen out and about volunteering at major events or community activities and that was typical of Brian’s style. He loved to get stuck in and work with and on behalf of his community. “For Brian, it was more than being a councillor, it was a way of life. He selflessly dedicated his time, passion and energy to make a real difference, both at county level and at Rhyl Town Council. “He will be missed by all his colleagues and friends within the Council and I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to his family at this very difficult time”.
