    It can’t be a surprise that this white elephant is going to cost more and this is just the tip of the iceberg. With 100% of us affected by increasing council tax and 90% affected by cuts to services, how the council and councillors can think that this white elephant project (which will be to the use and benefit of only 1% of constituents) can justify the costs and on-going costs is a mystery. What we have to do is get rid of the majority of the sitting councillors and replace them with intelligent, practical thinking councillors who will stand up to the overpaid hierarchy of the council. We, the majority, should direct the council – we pay your inflated wages.

    Well said Sir/Madam, BUT there’s always a but, how many people are willing to stand at the elections and take the flack that will always come against people who put themselves forward, MP’s Councillors whatever, not that they are all useless (there are some that do their best to stand up to the hierarchy )just the majority, see I am a point in case at complaining but would I put my head above the parapet !!

    I say again Why could this not have been done ????

    The way to have done it would have been to do what they did at the maelor hospital at one time, everyone has to take a ticket where the time would be recorded, which then would make people nervous about over staying their time. Simples !!!

    There will be a kickback to the time limit – look how many cars have moved from Penymaes Avenue and Westminster Drive — lots of town workers who work all day now using the freebies.

    Exactly

    I would assume that similar to the limited waiting in an on street parking bay i.e 30 minutes, the parked cars reg number would be noted and if its still there over the max time allowed, would receive a ticket! Simpels!

    There is a lot more cars to monitor, without knowing what time the cars enter the car park and with no tickets to reference, I would say not simples and very difficult to police.

    am I missing something ?

    Either by ANPR or by Enforcement Officers physically checking.

    ANPR is not there as far as I can see and there is definitely no Enforcement Officers checking cars going in.

    I was in Wrexham this morning and the Car Park at the library was choc-o-bloc at just after nine, and Westminster Drive was relatively an empty road compared to the usual !

    Yes I’m one of those beloved Welsh nationalist Plaid Cllrs, Carrie here, sorry ‘Flipper’, there wasn’t an intention to be anonymous, thought it was fairly obvious. It’s actually the first time I’ve managed to log on here. What are you talking about public services not being impacted? The question was about the UK budget announcement yesterday and the potential impact of that on the Difficult Decisions proposals, not the Tory austerity agenda generally. Plaid aren’t in coalition in Wales, we’re in opposition. We’re sort of back to square one here, this is a good example of why I personally gave up on forums years ago.

    I have said this before and will say it again, anyone who is in any sort of position of power should not be anonymous, councillors, council officers, etc. anyone who is not Joe Public should state who they are, because judging by many posts Joe Public is in the minority on here :(

    The problem with the above thought MP1953 is this. You are anonymous, how do we know you aren’t doing exactly what you say others shouldn’t do. Are you really “joe public” as you call them, or maybe you are somebody in power with your own agenda. I have always posted under my own name (even before I was elected as a councillor). That was my choice. I sometimes think that anonymous people shouldn’t be able to make personal remarks about “real people”. I have had anonymous posters making personal and untrue statements about me on this forum, only for them to say afterwards “oops sorry, I was wrong”. Should that be allowed? It doesn’t really encourage me to want to debate on a public forum when I don’t know who I am talking to. Remember, this forum is un-moderated and it is possible to say just about anything without any redress.

    It is also the case that we don’t actually know whether you are Mike Davies. Just because you have set it up as your user name does not mean that is who you are. And, without wishing to sound harsh, just honest, even if you are Mike Davies, I don’t actually know who Mike Davies is. I’m guessing you’re a councillor? But anyway, how do we know it’s really you?

    Fair points with some of this, BUT whoever it is that registers people on this site does know the names, and ok they could be giving false names although it seems pretty certain that Mike Davies is who he says he is or the real Mike Davies would be none to happy I guess, so for me like Mike Davies everyone who is a councillor, council official, belongs to a political party, union official etc. you get the picture should have the bottle to come on here as themselves, for me it doesn’t matter that others are anonymous as long as people put their points across sensibly, because at the end of the day if no one put themselves forward for positions within society where would we be.

    Who do we report this issue to, is their a phone number to contact. Mind you I have never found any needles.

    Exactly, and would there be a response to someone reporting it in any case ?

    and as Zinger says why isn’t a needle exchange policy done, again the type’s/users of these sort of issues bear no responsibility whatsoever for their actions which is why generally they get such little sympathy.

    As far as Bubble being part of the problem, that seems a bit harsh and unfair !

    If the numbers on some courses are low or no uptake then you cant expect the University to keep staff. All Universities will from time to time refresh the types of courses they run- businesses and potential employers needs will change and so the training has to be different.

    Should we not be celebrating the good news fully.

    I would feel sorry for anyone that loses a job but should we get all businesses that are reducing their staff for whatever reason to make sure they always get public approval through the media. This is an internal matter for the management and staff of Glyndwr (or any business) to deal with.

    Ah but who funds Glyndwr University ? private business’s that reduce staff are a different proposition altogether.

    Good clarification – I thought it was all of the cables they had laid

    There is apparently 2000 metres to be done all around Garden Village where the one particular gang did the initial job, the job needs to be done by Christmas, again from the horses mouth.
