    “Meanwhile, if the country Park charging scheme goes ahead, we hear it could affect the ability of over 200 children to enjoy the health benefits of the outdoors and sport.”

    What? It’s £1 a day isn’t it?? If parents are that bothered about their kids playing football then surely that’s not going to put them off. It seems a reasonable fee for parking on private land.

    Spot on! Tired of seeing people moaning about their kids will no longer able to do football and become lazy because of parking charges. Am I missing something? If you don’t want to pay car park charges WALK to the country park, it may surprise some that you can walk in the rain too after all they play football in it! My view on this is, if we are lucky to have country parks and I’m driving my air polluting car to one then I’d expect to pay to park it.

    Definitely, it seems that children don’t walk anywhere these days, or is it the parents that seem reluctant to use their legs apart from the gym after driving there :)

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    It’s not just children who can’t be expected to walk in the rain, apparently it’s our esteemed councillors too. See the ‘Signing of Co-operation Protocol’ thread for more details.

    Well I’m sure if our councillors use country parks they will pay too, slightly different than a place of work. Unless there’s a secret country park for just councillors and senior officers?

    Oh sorry, my mistake, I didn’t realise we should be expected to walk in the rain in pursuit of our own free time activities, but not when it comes to making a personal effort to get to work. I wonder how many people were unable to get to work today because it would have involved walking in the rain. Or maybe it’s only unreasonable to expect councillors to walk in the rain. If only there was some kind of invention that could help, like, say, an umbrella.

    Rain is irrelevant. Talking about parking in country parks and parking in council car park for work reasons, two completely different things. To simplify… country park charges everyone pays. As for councillors parking who cares if they don’t to pay? I for one don’t if it means our councillors can get to meetings and do the job they were elected to do. Say you had a problem with the council and had a meeting at the Guild hall and wanted your councillor there, you’d expect them to pay for parking to help you out? You’d be the first to complain if they refused because of having to pay for the pleasure of doing so.

    I’m not a big fan of people gaining from public money but with parking I can’t see it as a gain, they’re only parking for meetings etc.

    True, not much common sense about, and they only talk about “Austerity” when the council tax goes up. Sick of it. Mdme guillotine needs a visit to the UK.

    This is the opening exhibition at the Ty Pawb, White Elephant. We may well ask if this is planet earth when the council propose charging for our well used country parks whilst spending £4.5 million on the Ty Pawb, White Elephant project that will not interest, or be of any benefit, to 95% of Constituents. Meanwhile, if the country Park charging scheme goes ahead, we hear it could affect the ability of over 200 children to enjoy the health benefits of the outdoors and sport. However, there is one possibility, that they will be able to play indoors at Ty Pawb as there will be plenty of empty space there in a couple of months!

    On the subject of the country park parking – the meters will be in remote locations and will be regularly vandalised. The income taken from the parks will be lost in the purchase/hire, maintenance and repair of the parking machines.

    It is about time we got good professional ‘thinking’ councillors who live in the real world and are not in it just for perceived ego’s and have held some sort of responsible, professional job prior to their election.
    We must stand up for Wrexham and the silent majority….. Boycott TyPawb and vote the councillors out – we would be better off without them.!

    It is going to open and it will be great for the town. You need to move on! I’m starting to get very concerned that this is becoming an obsession, maybe try some of these http://www.mydomaine.com/things-to-do-when-bored or stand in the next local election as you are clearly an expert in the economy, event management and also the mind-set of over 130,000 Wrexham residents….wait!…are you God? if so I’m really sorry about swearing in Church back in 1988 ;0) Tŷ Pawb all the way I say!
