I run a business in the Wrexham area and live in Llay. I am against the development as it will bring nothing to the area but will take away green fields, increase traffic and overcrowd the doctors and schools. Llay is a great place to live and I am very proud to be Welsh living in a Welsh village.
If you want a petition in support of this massive site I would recommend you contact the farmer as we could not find anyone else in favour.
We have photos of the fields along Gresford Road going back to the 70s and it was very flat. In the last 10 years it has sunk so much and flooding on it is now much more common. We can produce these photos along with ones that other residents have taken for any planning committee that requires proof. I am also appealing for photos of the Straight Mile over the years as I and lots of other residents remember it being flat. In fact in the last eight years the council thought fit to erect a “sign warning of a blind summit” this was not deemed to be required before then.

I agree with Chris.
Are you both ganging up on us for fun as you seem to be on first name terms?
The land between Rhosrobin and Pandy was called Green Barrier in the planning meeting on Tuesday and that land is not even farmed on.
This land is still farmed for crops, sheep and lambs are there from December onwards and the young cattle appear later, move off for a while and then return again after the field is cut.
The phrase Green belt land is not as common as most people think and we refer to agriculture land as green belt depending on the grade. Wales has only one formally designated green belt area which is located between Newport and Cardiff.
This is classed as Grade 3 land and housing estates may not be built on Grade 1, 2 or
3a so the danger is they will try to refer to this as Grade 3b which it is not.
The councillor in question was on the planning committee tonight and even though the application was concerning the Wrexham to Llay New Road, he never voiced an opinion once. What chance have got of him raising his voice if the proposed development reaches the planning stage while he is still a councillor.
The Ruthin Road sites are well away from any villages and the Mold Road site replace a factory that was there. The Gresford road one would be opposite residential areas and would also encroach on the Croes Howell Hamlet.
BenjaminM, I don’t know what planet you live on but it’s not the same one as the rest of us. This proposed estate would have a major effect on Llay and surrounding areas, doctors, schools, roads, drainage would all be effected and it will reduce the asking prices of the houses in the area.
The site on Ruthin road causes flooding onto the main road and if you drive past you will notice the sandbags along side the road.
As for Abenbury that replaced the old Abenbury Brickworks and was not green belt land.
If you have faith in Wrexham Council you must know something I don’t because I have no faith at all.
30 years ago a farmer in Llay sold his pig farm as building land and they built Singret Hights off the Gresford Road on it. Now thirty years later the same farming family want to sell their farming land to build 367 properties and destroy our countryside even further.
Llay can not sustain an estate of this size and certainly not on land that it is well known to have sunk over the last 20 years and would be unstable to build on. Who ever buys a house there would have great difficulty getting insurance and the builder would have a problem issuing a building federation 10 year certificate.
