    “We have done soft market testing in the town to see what aspirations are in the town centre. We are pulling information together now into broad ideas on where we would like to take the town centre. From members (Councillors) we have a draft vision – a 21st century town for people to live in, invest in and visit.”

    Translation: We haven’t found an excuse yet for the public being happy about the Memorial Hall being knocked down. The councillors have given us a very hard task.

    The soft market testing will throw up all sorts of aspirations ranging from a Venue Cymru style Theatre to a new Swimming baths. Attempts will be made to get capital grants to meet those aspirations from the Welsh Assembly, the EU, the Arts Council, etc.

    Evaluation of the likely profitability of said aspirations will ensue and there will be an injection of pessimism and deep inhaling of breath.

    Alternatively, there are Council bills to pay, shortfalls to cover and assets in hand. Two types of groups will want to develop the available asset land….Retail developers and House building developers.

    On balance, the highest bidder will win. The consequences for the town will be difficult to determine but the short term cash influx will be considerable

    This is just a guess with no insight whatsoever.

    Has anyone been, or heard from anyone, who has attended the sessions so far?

    Results of the public consultation could be interesting given the generally lowish turn out for consultations in the past.

    Why are the documents not on the Council web site?

    Is this the plan for moving the cenotaph for the second time?

    With all the new and proposed housing in and around the town isn’t it time for a new town centre park to be created? The obvious piece of land would be the Nine Acre Field. Garden Village have managed to achieve Village Green status for their green area around the school , perhaps the time has come for the Nine Acre to become a protected open space. Perhaps by 2039 it would be mature and be suitable as a World War 2 Centenary Garden.

    Town Centre Park? Obvious piece of land? why not the in the Lake District!!
    Village Green in Garden Village? What about marketing Bersham Water falls as the New Niagra, or the Eagles Meadow stream as the new Chevey Fountains! Or my toilet ceiling as the Cistern Chapel!! or etc etc………….

    If you go to the “Fields In Trust ” website and put in a local post code it is amazing how many local green areas they already protected by them in the Wrexham area.
