Wrexham CBC has won one of the Plain English Campaign's Golden Bull awards for a letter regarding planning applications, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.
Council leader Sian Wilkinson admitted the letter, in dense legal jargon, was 'terrible'.
'When someone is asking for information, and that information is in legal language, I think it's the responsibility for the council and its staff to write a letter in plain English, and maybe you have to attach the legal part,' she said.
She said Wrexham would be taking action to improve. 'We do have a communications policy, but ensuring that every letter and document that leaves the council complies with that isn't easy,' she said.
