    Earlier this month, Wrexham Council’s executive board voted unanimously in favour of proposals to demolish the building on Powell Road.

    Other options had been discussed, such as demolishing part of the building but retaining the facade at a cost of £418,000, as well as an extra £155,000 per year to protect it while waiting for development to go ahead, and retaining and mothballing the site at a cost of £375,000.

    I think we can all do the maths here ………….. in a time when Council’s need to account for every penny, we have to put purse strings above sentiment. Flattening the building will only cost £246,000

    Very sad but don’t blame me, blame the Tories …. and those who voted for them! Good old David and his demands for posterity!!!

    Out with the old and in with the new, the building is coming down and nobody can stop that now so let’s embrace this and look at it as a chance to improve education in the area!

    Personally I wanted to see the baths pulled down and a new centre built as its just an eyesore. I cannot wait to see the end of the police station either …. What were they thinking when they built them?

    And why can’t we look after the down and outs, those who need second chances and those who need to flee persecution? There are some bigoted views coming out of this thread and people should be hanging their heads in shame.

    If I can represent one I can represent all and will always listen to views, no matter how wrong they are!

    Rohelendus MRICS, FCIOB …. perhaps you should be asking WHO PLANTED THE BATS and WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

    Executive Board November 2015:
    4.3 A planning application was submitted by Coleg Cambria in November 2014 and is expected to be determined in November 2015. The substantial delay has been caused by the need to undertake a bat survey – which was in turn
    governed by the seasonal nature of the field work.
    4.4 The consequence of this delay has had a significant bearing on proposals for former Groves School site. In the intervening 12 months, the priorities of the Council have changed.

    Someone once suggested that Councillor Mark Pritchard had bats in his Belfry!

    Although I can see your point Rohelendus MRICS, FCIOB (if you are real!), the covenant on the site requires us to use it for educational purposes and it is far, far cheaper to rip down the school and throw up a new build.

    Too many people point the finger at us wasting money or complain about trivial matters such as priority parking for top Managers and Councillors (which we do need!) but wouldn’t it be far worse throwing bags of money into repairing an old school when we could save a fortune building a new school?

    My suggestion to convert the building into a half way house for prisoners released into the community once HMP Wrexham opens or to house immigrants was thrown out because of the covenant and the cost involved in fixing the Groves but I am now of the opinion that Erlas House would be a cost ehttp://www.wrexham.com/forums/topic/the-groves-school-structure-and-condition#topic-replyffective option for the Council.

    Its a shame that the Groves has to go but a new school will bring many construction jobs to Wrexham, just as the Prison has.

    Our car park is available to constituents, Saturday and Sunday only (63 spaces / 4 disabled)
    0 – 1 hour – £1.00

    Mr Lucas, thanks for representing the minority and wimping out! Remind me to give you a pat on the back next time we meet.

    Anyone opposing the bombings please respond with a better solution, and don’t say that they need to sit around a table and talk as we all know that cannot happen.

    Time to park up.

    Don’t you think that the influx of overseas people moving to Wrexham could be to blame just a little bit?
    Your surgery probably has the same number of doctors but a lot more patients now so waiting times will be a lot longer.
    Please try to be be a patient patient, December will be here soon enough!

    WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH!
    These bumpos just stop stupid drivers from knowing over shoppers in the zebra crossings.
    Maybe I can stop pushing my old wife out in front of me at the crossings now …….

    Well done Asda!
