I doubt it, they want to keep their seat at the next election.
However,could this lead to Councillors voting this application through for Gwersyllt, knowing full well a new application would not come back for this in their ward.March 8, 2018 at 10:38 am in reply to: Councillor Steps down from Executive Board (merged) #145926
Methinks it has been worked out as moving from 13k as a Councillor to 29k as Lead Member 123%March 6, 2018 at 4:52 pm in reply to: Shame on Councillors to refuse planning permission #145827
If Councillors are speaking for the people they represent why do they ABSTAIN from voting?
I think the voting was 9 against 5 for with 4 abstentions.March 6, 2018 at 2:47 pm in reply to: Shame on Councillors to refuse planning permission #145825
I agree with the posts of Matt and Council Watcher. Going against the advice of the Planning Officer leaves us in the position of a hefty bill when it will surely go to appeal.
I can understand local councillors protecting their wards in some planning applications, but the comments made were to me,out of order.
This does not mean that the rest of the planning committee could not have outvoted the local objections. This, they failed to do. Shame on them.
As I have alluded to in a previous post I am not against the use of containers to provide accommodation for the homeless.
What does concern me is that Wrexham could become the centre for more homeless people from surrounding areas, due to the innovation of this project.
I believe that Welsh Government should make each Council in Wales do as they do with the traveller community. Make it a law that each Council make their own container provision for the homeless, rather than saturate one area.
Hopefully they will be more like ones you see across the country on building sites, that are equipped with kitchens, toilets and heating.
There are photographs on the planning application of them kitted out. I do not know how to show them on here, but have a look for yourself.

I say Jimbo old chap, look at the big picture. Wrexham council is providing a secure place for these people to sleep instead of shop doorways which they will also use to urinate in, also, it keeps them pretty well confined during the hours of darkness and prevents them getting up to mischief or crime along with causing great annoyance to the public. And who knows, some night in the near future the the local authority just might decide to shut them in and lock the doors of the containers,, mark them, for onward shipping to Libya and solve the dosser problem for good. So tell me Jimboy will that solve the problem for you, maybe you could tag along and ensure the containers are returned.
Hey Cromwell,less of the OLD chap. Where in my post have I criticised the Council for what they are doing? I do not have a problem with this solution. The question posed for discussion was,where will this take and lead us?
I have just had a procedure done in the Maelor Hospital that was carried out in what resembled a shipping container. I was informed the old building was falling down and that this was the way forward using containers as theatres.
This is a Forum about expressing oneself on any given topic that any one person so desires. You do not have to read about the markets, nobody makes you. It is just about opinions.
You have been off this forum for some time. Previously you were quite often slagging peoples opinions. Looks as if you are back at it again.
In your opinion it is a ridiculous header but at least it has got you off your backside and conjured a reply. Opinions keep the Forum going. Chill out BenjaminM.

I wonder if press are invited to the 29th event? Will be an interesting one to see all the politico in there. Obviously Ian Lucas has provided strong criticism against the council for their cuts against the Wrexham school music budget and then establishing Ty Pawb:

A view endorsed by the whole of the local Labour Party. Sure to be a very prickly reception with lots of back-patting between the likes of Clrs Pritchard, Atkinson and the mayor et al…but then all other town leaders feeling somewhat awkward about the whole thing.
The Council were Labour controlled when this was passed for a follow up at the Executive Board on 5th August 2014
Has everyone forgotten the 2003 Theatre misadventure?
Wrexham theatre plans abandoned
It is highly unlikely that a theatre will now be built in Wrexham
Plans for a new theatre and conference centre in Wrexham have been abandoned after councillors voted against going ahead with the multi-million pound scheme.
They decided to scrap the project because the costs were mounting and it was unpopular with locals.
The motion – which was carried by 24 votes to 18 – was made “in view of the real concerns expressed by the public”.
This in 2003 when there were no cut backs as we know them today.
In 2015 when Ty Pawb arose and austerity in full swing our Councillors vote it through. It beggars belief.
