This stretch of road runs alongside green fields that could be used for building houses on in the LDP. Imagine planning turning it down for housing on the grounds of, high nitrogen dioxide levels. Using this reasoning the speed restriction could become permanent. Who knows?
Could it be that Wrexham Council have come up with the perfect answer?
The obligation on the Council is to provide a certain number of traveller spaces. By putting them in close proximity to the new police station,it could transpire to be good management.
It could turn out that the travellers may well choose not to set up in a heavily policed area, in which case its possible Llay could be the best site in the county.
BenjaminM. I agree 10 Executive Board members to cover 7 Council Heads of Departments.
It’s one thing getting elected onto the Council from your local ward,it’s another to get the Leader to appoint you to a position on the Executive Board. To get into a position of having some clout is not that easy. But good luck,it comes across that it is not all about ability looking at the present make up of the Exec Board.June 4, 2018 at 12:01 pm in reply to: Ty Pawb Market is no longer a Market in Council report on Markets!! #150156
The historic clock repair in 2017/18 in the Butchers Market sums up Wrexham Council to a tee.
This clock has not been working to my knowledge prior to 2009.
It has taken 8 years at least to get it fixed, and they think that reporting it to Scrutiny shows they are on top of the regeneration of the Markets.
It is about time Councillors on the Markets Scrutiny Committee who represent the general public took a firmer stance with council officers.June 2, 2018 at 2:00 pm in reply to: Ty Pawb Market is no longer a Market in Council report on Markets!! #150086
JaneJ. I agree with your point that there will be no surplus coming from Ty Pawb. The point I was making was that the Council have reduced the possible income by £74,000 which when the 3 markets were combined went to reinvestment. Now the Butchers and General along with the shops support only themselves.June 1, 2018 at 4:30 pm in reply to: Ty Pawb Market is no longer a Market in Council report on Markets!! #150054
You would hope in the not too distant future a full Income and Expenditure Account for Ty Pawb Market on its own, will be available, but I am not holding my breath.
The old Peoples Market used to be included with the Butchers and General Markets and all surplus monies re invested back into the markets.
Unfortunately now the old Peoples Market comes under Ty Pawb, any surplus money will not be utilised for the Butchers or General Markets.
The Peoples Market had if 100% occupancy, the ability to attract a yearly rental income of around £145,000
Ty Pawb Market side if it had 100% occupancy, only has the ability to attract a yearly rental income of around £71,600.
To me the Council are deliberately trying to run down the town centre assets.

What I could not understand was the Council turfed out stallholders end of December 2016, in order that the work could be completed one month earlier than an original opening date of January 2018.
It eventually opened in April 2018 and was handed over unfinished.
I just hope that the contractors are not given any more Council business.May 25, 2018 at 11:38 am in reply to: Kingdom Zero Tolerance video evidence blocked by Wrexham Council bureaucracy #149658
If zero tolerance was not indicated to be the procedure to follow at the meeting, could it be that some of those who have been fined, could have their cases reviewed.?
Although i do not think that Councillors and Top Management should have to pay to park because they work on behalf of the people of Wrexham, if WrexhamWatch is correct, they won’t have to fight for parking spaces with shoppers and will be able to keep their own car park.
If you want to look at the bigger picture and see where the money will be lost, all people who work for the Council will be able to buy a pass for a ton and can share it with their friends and family which will lose a LOT more money than by keeping the Councillor car park private.
What is to stop photocoping passes or selling a pass? This came up at the local and five people said they would buy or rent a pass if it saved them over £15 a week.
Don’t devilise Councillors and Top Managers when there are bigger fish in the sea. It is a storm in a tea cup and unlikely to happen.
Staff that work for the Council that have a parking concession would photocopy or sell on their passes. You have a poor opinion of Council staff.
495 concessions at £100 brings in £49,500
495 paying the same as everybody else brings in around £232k per annum.
Make it easy ALL PAY.
