    I saw a tweet today asking about lists of affordable houses for sale in Wrexham making me wonder how many there actually are.

    Huge estates of houses are being built, of which a small percentage are or should be affordable. Do any of these actually come up for sale or are they already a done deal for property developers?

    There are plent of affordable houses for sale in the area. Do we need to destroy the greenbelt forever and build more?

    More houses and no investment in the infrastructure. Sounds like a plan for (further) disaster.

    A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.

    I agree 100% Councillor X. As with forestry & wild life habitat, green belt land will soon be a thing of the past. Thin end of the wedge practise.

    The way that planning works in Wrexham is that if promises are made to build affordable houses anything gets through. When local planning disagrees the WA Government step in. We are in a no win situation.

    Or a developers says they will provnide affordable houses/accomodation then back track — see recent issue in Henblas Street.
    If there was more of an incentive for commercial property owners to convert unused parts of their buildings they could generate many 100’s of flats that could be atractive for singles and couples. Those with properties that are too large could down size leaving bigger properties to be sold on the market.

    Blueprint for around 8,000 new homes in Wrexham based on ‘outdated’ figures

    This makes me wonder how often outdated figures are used.

    So Llyr Griffiths wants the Council to reduce the figures to 2011 levels.
    He has a short memory as the 2011 LDP submission was rejected leading to the best part of a decade of developers “ cherry picking “ their sites.
    We have to learn from past mistakes and not follow this Plaid Cymru dog whistle.

    Are Plaid correct for Wrexham or are they looking at a total for North Wales and want to see more building of houses in west Wales to keep their voting heartland alive. Vote collecting is bound to be behind Llyr,a thinking.
