    Why is it that so often when the Council goes out to public consultation they never take any notice. Can someone please let me know when the last time Wrexham Council actually listened and changes any of their plans? It is time that ALL Council Members woke up to the fact that their role is first to listen to the public and then act on their behalf not to have meetings in darkened rooms and decide the outcome of a consultation before it has even commenced. Democracy involves everyone knowing what is going on in the open not behind closed door!

    Democracy is in grave danger when Freedom of Information requests have to be repetitively used for information which should really be shared and monitored in the public domain in any case. As is the case for the use of Part 2 council committee meetings which exclude the public. We have arrived at a position where we are arguing about the process all the time, not the outcome. This symptom has been recognised elsewhere, and as it has become obvious in Wrexham in recent years, this should surely be changed.
