    The Welsh government was 11,500 new houses in Wrexham, the council say this should be 8,000. I say there should be NO new houses in Wrexham until the following problems have been resolved…

    There are no timely appointments at Family Doctors
    No overcrowded schools
    No Queues at the Hospital
    No traffic Jams everywhere at rush hours
    All the roads have been improved
    The disgusting state of the roads has been fixed.

    How do we achieve this imposition by the Welsh government and our own council? The only way I can see this is by direct action and from April a mass with-holding of council tax. This will break the council and will prevent actions to impose these plans, plans that will only bring further misery to all residents both young and old.

    The building of more houses accelerates and promotes population growth and as every single person has a carbon footprint be it transport or waste, the building of more and more houses contravenes the climate change message. There is a finite number of people this planet can support so, at some time, population restrictions will have to be imposed. Let us start the movement in April, in Wrexham and put the town on the green map.

    The message from the Welsh Government about pollution on the by-pass is seriously flawed by their proposed imposition of 11,750 new houses (i.e. at least 8,000 cars) on our local roads. We should start the Wrexham independence movement (WREXIT) to break away from the clutches of the poorly performing (South) Welsh government for which the people of Wrexham did not support in the First place.

    I’m afraid that most councils are struggling to cope with the Conservatives/Osborne’s vicious council budget cuts.

    The recent election result means that people welcome this pain…. lord knows why.

    Because the other option was Corbyn, enough said.

    What we really need are thousands of new council houses and flats so people can get a decent place to live. At the moment the housing market is dominated by a few large companies (who now admit their overpriced houses are shoddy) and buy to let landlords who are profiting from an ever increasing housing benefit bill. If councils could build the houses, the housing benefit money would go back in to support local services. Let’s hope for some fresh thinking in Cardiff Bay and more devolution from Cardiff to north, north-east, west and mid Wales.

    I thought it was odd that WAG rejected LDP1 because there weren’t enough houses in in and it seems that WCBC have submitted a plan with fewer houses in it.

    The old, expired LDP included infrastructure improvements on the plans, with land set aside in some places but this was removed from LDP2 and replaced with wooly statements with no specific targets (“developers will contribute some money towards improvements” or similar).

    Without an agreed plan in place, it gives developers more clout in appeals against planning being refused. I don’t know how long WCBC can keep claiming that the expired LDP is still valid when it’s so old, yet when they want to go against it they said it’s out of date and no longer applies.

    When did we last actually have an LDP approved and in place ? Don’t remember one in place when Helen Paterson was chief executive.

    The Wrexham / Welsh Goverenment proposals don’t seem to take into account the 1000s of new houses being built along the A55 corridor from Post House roundabout or the stretch heading south along the A483 before the Wrexham border. With all these proposals on our border do we now really need all the houses predicted.
    Do we have the jobs in the area to offer all of these newbies coming into the area- if there are no jobs then why come and live here.
    The green belt between Wrexham and Chester will be aroded over the next 10/15 years that Wrexham could become a suburb of Chester!!

    But they do. The projections are per-local authority.

    There are still plans for A483 junction improvements in the LDP but these aren’t funded. They’re here if you’re interested.
