    Perhaps Councillors should take a keener interest in the time lapse between homes becoming empty and being re-let.

    Perhaps Councillors should take a walk around their wards more often. They may well find other problems, but there again, maybe they don’t want any problems.

    It is not just the car park income that is the golden egg, there is the income from the South Arcade shops that have been credited to Ty Pawb.

    If these two income streams had been credited to the Peoples Market the place would never have had to be rejigged.

    I hope the Scrutiny Committee Meeting will be web cast.

    After reading the Audit Report on Ty Pawb I am not surprised at the goings on.

    When in December 2018 a report on the accounts were put before the Scrutiny Committee, I queried with the Council the amount of income received from the Service Charges, as none were showing.

    The reply I received from the Council by e mail explained ” Within the information provided to Scrutiny Committee, the projected service charge for this financial year is £19k (based on the traders in occupation). Within the financial ledger for Ty Pawb the service charge is allocated against an income code, however in the financial schedule presented to the committee it has been netted off against the projected overheads for the year”.

    What else is hidden in the figures? You just can’t make it up. How on earth would Scrutiny have known this?

    Alunh.. I could not agree more with your post.
    WCBC are asking for funding to improve the jewels in the crown of Wrexham, The Markets. The simple facts are the Butchers Market is only half full. WCBC spent £20k on two new stalls that have hardly been let in two years. Yet when I criticise this, I am told I am being negative.
    I am not against improvements in the town centre but at least let the money be spent wisely.
    I am led to believe that the entrance to the Central Arcade is being used as a toilet area during the evening. The tenants were hoping to move the entrance shutter further up the Arcade. Unfortunately, as it is a grade 2 listed building, the powers that be have turned down the request. It looks like punters will have to continue to walk the plank.

    As much as the Planning Committee can feel aggrieved at the lower figures offered, I believe the full time officers in the Council Planning Department have to take the blame for this fiasco.

    ChillDoubt and zinger Do me a favour and sit and speak to people receiving treatment (I dare you) ….. believe me

    PEOPLE UNDERGOING CANCER TREATMENT DO DRIVE AND TRY TO PARK!

    They often HAVE to drive and arrive at the ward upset that they are late for treatment!

    WreX-iT is correct. I had to go for cancer treatment,I drove to the hospital myself, had treatment and then drove home. I did this every weekday for a continuous 7 weeks.

    There might be a black hole in the pot hole funding budget but there is still plenty of money in the yellow paint pot! More unnecessary yellow lines appeared in Garden Village ! Surely time the Council make a list of needs before they spend any more money on fripperies!

    Where are the unnecessary yellow lines in Garden Village?

    I guess they are at the top end of Kenyon Avenue by the shops.

    The ones by the shops have only been overpainted as they were faded. The new ones on the junction of Kenyon Avenue and Ffordd Estyn were not unnecessary, but were needed, as the parking there was dangerous.
