Olddog and sheefag, you are like an immature version of Little and Large and are constantly trying to bring this forum down to your level.
For your information I was told that the offer was made by the landowner that made it but the farmer wants to hold out for the big pay day and doesn’t care if it’s farm land anymore.

Maybe if you win you can make an offer for Home Farm��
I have already been informed that he turned down an offer recently from another farmer to purchase the land.
But yes if I won enough I would make an offer for it and find away of preserving it for the Llay residents.
But in the meantime I and others will oppose it at every turn as we would hate to see green fields disappear.
:):):):):) I’m now going to check my ticket.

Just to clear up a few points.
The Crewe family is one of most known and very respected families in the village, in particular to those who are Llay born and bred. Your personal insults and lack of knowledge are uncalled for.
What business have you run Captain C, it must be Muck Spreading. You are very successful at it.
And you cannot claim all of Gresford Road and Llay are against the development. Because they are not.
I have lived in a council house in this village all my life, known the family all my life , lovely family they are too. I cannot say I agree with the development, but am prepared to watch it go through its long journey via the proper channels. Obviously yourself and Saxon are bitter and twisted and will invent as much dirt as you can. It’s not the way to go about things, your comments are your own and I cannot imagine that your methods represent the views of other protestors. And your few points are not totally correct.
I have known the Crewe family for a number of years as well But you can not doubt the facts that they have done this before and will try to do it again and again.
Do you think that they will live in the farm house when it is surrounded with houses and traffic?
As for the jibe about muck spreading, no I leave that to the farmer as it’s his job.
As far as people for and against this application, apart from a couple of posters on here I am finding it very hard to find any in Llay but I am finding dozens who have very strong feelings against it.
I also grew up in a council house and am very proud of my upbringing but I would never force my feelings on other people. If I won the lottery (no chance) I would not sell my home and move as I would be letting every one living in Llay down and I amongst others will fight this until the bitter end.
Try telling that to all the residents off Gresford Road and within Llay.
I don’t hate the Crewe’s I hate what they are doing to the village. I don’t hate South Wales, I am from South Welsh stock going back three generations before they moved to North Wales. I most certainly don’t hate progress I have ran a business for many years but I would not sell my neighbours down the line and reduce the value of their homes by destroying their area around them.
When can you leave then? One assumes that will be after the money is in the pocket or are you a South Wales person?

Nice to see some in the community are keeping the old, local traditions alive.
I and my family have had connections with Llay all my life. I even attended Llay school and have now lived in the area for over 40 years. I am very proud of where I live and have always sung the praises of Llay from the roof tops.
How the hell can you make the above statement when they are trying to sell us all down the line, that is not keeping the old local traditions alive. I can only assume that you are one of them?
Nice post with feeling and common sense EJ01.
The point of the confusion over cut off dates are because they lifted the application of the site and reposted with a different date. We believe that the cut off date is as the planning posters (9th Jan 2015) but will try to get it extended. The council planning dept’ seems to give us a different date every time we contact them and the Community Council have been given even more dates to add to the confusion.
Just to clear up a few points:
The Woodlands Estates on Gresford Road was built on overspill land owned by the Llay Colliery Company.
The Land which is now Singret Hights was built was a Pig Farm owned by the Crewe Family (yes the same Crewe Family) and was sold to build on.
The Meadow Rise Estate was a field owned by the Crewe family (yes same ones).
The Barns at Home Farm were converted and sold by The Crewe Family once again for vast profit.
They have a reputation of buying agricultural land or buildings and converting into residential land without any thought for the locals or the heritage of Llay.
They have also bought a field on the Llay New Road and wont to have permission to build houses on there as well. There is enough Brown land in the area to use for buildings without destroying and removing the green barrier.
