    I have watched this thread with interest and most seem to agree that the council seem to have their own agenda for the Groves and are not taking into account the views of the public who voted them in.

    How would any of us like our relatives to spend their last days in the hospice across the road from this much abused site with all that’s going on there.

    If the council pulled their collective fingers out this area could have been well on the way to being restored and a new school could have been built on the vast playing fields. Why did we require money spent on a Arts Hub in the Peoples Market when it could have been incorporated within the Groves?

    The planning appeal is to be held at the Guildhall Wrexham starting on the 22nd November 2016 and could last up to 4 days. The architect stated at the beginning of all this that they would not have tried to get this approved if Wrexham Council had a LDP in place. After we got it stopped at the Planning Committee meeting he then stated that they had no plans to appeal, this goes to show what a liar he is as it now seems that he is one of the main backers for the application. The other backer is a firm called “McClements and McClements Ltd” These are the same McClements that set up a company called Mifest Ltd and tried to put on a 3 day music festival on the same land and were stopped when the Welsh Ambulance Services and North Wales Police pulled out stating that it was a unsafe event. The reason we agreed that they used (so that they could save face) was that the land was waterlogged and unsafe to put cars on it for 3 days. While this was true it was not the main reasons as stated above.
    The Planning Committee threw this out without a vote in its favour as it was outside the settlement limits for the village. The schools in the area are over subscribed as are the Doctors. The roads are already gridlocked at peak times and in the next two years the new Police Headquarters will be sited in Llay.

    GrumpyGit, If you think it’s clever to use language such as that you must be very sad. I would think twice if I was you on referring to Ian Lucas using such terms, don’t forget he is a lawyer and could chew you up and spit you out in a Law Court if he wanted to.
    Regardless of which party you support the representative is allowed his or her opinion and does not have to tow your party line just because you shout out very loud.

    My God Grumpy Git you are well named.

    I also have met Mr Lucas and although I never state my politics I found him a very pleasant man who cares about Wrexham and the people who live here.
    Just because he does not agree with you over Corbyn does not make him the person you describe and it takes a lot of guts to declare ones lack of confidence in the leader of his party.

    Regardless of ones political leanings I think that if a member of a party feels strongly that the leader is not the right person to lead then he should be able to voice his opinion.

    If Ian Lucas feels that way about Corbyn then he should make that statement and not just be a yes man and he gains my respect for making a stance.

    If the Tories called an election right now they would walk in with an increased majority and this would be the end of Labour. This country needs a strong ruling party but we also need a strong opposition and I’m afraid that under Corbyn’s leadership we have not got that.

    I did not state that I had a trolley bin or not but pointed out that the council will never admit if they are wrong and always make up a story to claim that it’s not their fault. They have not thought this through and purchased the waggons on the strength of every household receiving the trolleys and then produce a lame excuse when they ceased to deliver after 13,000 of them.

    What is an unsuitable house for the new trolley bins. They say flats or ones with steps or ones with no gardens but when you drive around you see that they have lots of these trolleys all the way from Holt to Gresford.
    The estates off the Gresford Road. Llay did not receive them but the few houses and barn conversions on the other side of the road did. Why don’t the council own up to the fact that they have not thought it through and stop making up excuses.

    What the hell is going on. Does the latest news mean we now have more boxes to carry to the end of the drive or do we still get a trolley. Why can’t the council make their minds up and stick with it.

    It would be worth visiting the A&E on a Monday (seemingly this is often a very busy day) and seeing for yourselves.

    People were sitting on the floor and lots of children were waiting there. One gentleman who’s GP had sent in with a heart problem signed him self out after waiting over 6hrs.
    When we arrived (complete with GPs referral and a bed booked) we were told that there were no beds and six people at that time were waiting for a bed. I offered to take my wife home so they could phone when a bed was ready. They said if we left we would go to the bottom of the list even though that would have meant less people taking up space. Although there was lots of people with serious problems there was quite a number with minor things wrong and they amazed me by waiting all that time.
    The problem in the main is not the staff but higher up the ladder and it should be looked into by the NHS.
