    Have we given up with the idea of attracting new businesses and employers to technology parks? A housing estate is almost complete at ‘Erddig Place’ on Croesnewydd Technology Park. Now we have a planning application for ‘affordable housing’ at Wynnstay Technology Park near Ruabon. We have even built a prison and a police station on industrial estates??? Is there a rationale behind all this?



    Just remember what Borris said, “F**k business”.



    My 6th form Geography dissertation in 1996-97 was on diversification of industrial estates on Teesside, back then many older heavy industrial sites had been demolished & the sites were attracting light industries, technology companies, in Middlesbrough a football stadium & in Stockton on Tees, a University. That was over 20 years ago & a lot has changed since then with web commerce. If incentives aren’t there for at such companies & rates are too high then this is simply diversification again. I’d rather see houses on brownfield sites over greenfield.
