    I noticed in The Daily Post today they mentioned that Rhyl had lost around 7000 shoppers in the first week since M&S and Next moved to Prestatyn. But…figures returned to normal after that first week. As I said earlier on here, Prestatyn is far too small for A retail park and we hated it. Rhyl council are quick to reinstate empty shops, and before you know it, it will be bustling again.

    The questions at the start of this thread two months on seem to be as relevant as ever. The emerging headline is the cost to every working person is £4,989*?

    *Council spend divided by population 16 to 64 years.

    What is the Council plan to improve opportunity and earnings for people, improve quality of life, and deliver the most cost effective and least intrusive public services. How do they measure this. Public debate about individual initiatives is great for day to day life – but why spend £4,989 per person?

    Putting it bluntly… Two months in and you still haven’t decided who the leader of wrexham is… your argument is incoherent until you do.

    I don’t think this is about an argument, well at least to start with. We seem to lack some straight forward facts in the public domain about what democracy is trying to achieve for the people of Wrexham, and how the money is being managed to achieve those aims. It seems that those elected are not fully engaged with the community about driving forward a strong economy, jobs, education, and protecting things like our health provision (eg Maelor).

    It’s not an argument, but until you hold someone or something responsible, your comments are incoherent as you can’t pinpoint what needs to be changed or eradicated.

    As you said in some previous posts, messages need to be straight forward to understand, otherwise people switch off. The community can understand that the Council spends £430,000,000 per annum on its behalf, we all know this could be spent differently and better, how do we go from awareness raising to coherent action?

    your message isn’t simple to understand. I don’t understand where you want to go, there are no clear objectives nor how you want to change things. It’s a bit of a ramble to be honest.

    So, what is this topic trying to address ?
    Is it trying to create a top ten points of issue that the WCBC’s residents see’s that it is important for Wrexham’s future ? Then set a priority for them ?
    Then, obviously, who to address and hold responsible for taking ‘our’ action plan forward ?
    Or is this too simplistic ?

    If people of Wrexham consistently say that they are not being listened to, and the County is not delivering what it should, finding an alternative way of raising these questions, and putting the issues centre stage, is essential.
