    The catch will surely be how long a contract they have- terminating early will clearly cost the Council and us the ratepayers of Wrexham. The only way to get out with zero cost will be to find something they have not been doing and go for breach of contract.

    Matt what on earth have you been on this morning – even by your standards your assessment is going off the scale (even though I agree with most of it- not sure about your Trump solution).

    I can’t believe I’m going to defend the Council on some of your points just because the items don’t fall into their control- Health is a disaster but not because f Cllr Pritchard there has been gross underfunding from Welsh Government and in turn Westminster, no proper investment I training to replace an ageing GP workforce who are retiring. This is linked to people leading unhealthy lifestyles- sugar, fat, alcohol, substances — all of which are under the control of individuals who seem to have forgotten that they have responsibility for their own health and well being.

    Fire Service is also separate so no blame there for the Council. The Council will through be responsible for lots of car accidents on roundabouts and junctions as they let the grass grow so high that drivers vision is obstructed.

    Llay residents need to ask their local Councillors what has the Section 106 and Community Benefit clause funding from the Police Station and other developments. This funding is intended for community projects yet often ends up being snapped up by Highways or Education alone- residents should have a say in how it is spent.

    Could a Market Trader please take a picture of the Gold plated WiFi router stsyem installed in the Peoples and General Market as reported by Wrexham.com from a Council report on the markets. This seems an astronomic cost for two buildings that are open plan with no hudge dense walls for signals to penetrate. If this is the kind of cost they are prepared to pay for work that could have been done for a matter of £100’s rather than £10s of thousands.

    Even if they used a microwave link from the top of the buildings – something technically that would have been total overkill still would not have been that level.

    Somebody somewhere is making a massive profit!

    We should not forget that there should by now have been a fully functioning town Public WiFi system that came with the new CCTV installation about three years ago!! Whatever happened to that? How much refund did the Council get for not having it operational? If it had been installed correctly a linkage into the markets would have been feasible at a cost of very low hundreds of pounds.

    Money saved from this could have been reinvested in other parts of the refurbishment plan.

    If I lived in the areas that Wrexham would like to take control over I would be starting to object to my local Councilor and make it very clear that you don’t want to be part of Wrexham.

    Objections on the grounds that another business is selling the same product do not carry any weight at a Planning Meeting. An objection based on commercial competition is not a valid reason for permission nor to be given.
