At the end of the day, physical retail is dying as people find it cheaper and more convenient to buy stuff online and have it delivered. This is just another step down that road.
Just seen the report regarding the extreme pressure on North Wales hospitals. I think we can safely say that these planning applications will be rejected in light of this, which is a shame. Infrastructure just not there at the moment for any increase in population.
Why do people on Facebook keep saying that Ty Pawb is “unfinished”? I thought that was just how it was designed to look, a modern “industrial” or “stripped back” look? Or have I misunderstood this and it is literally unfinished?
Apartments without car parking spaces are fine in cities and larger towns when there is work within walking distance or in cities a cheap Uber ride. The problem in Wrexham is limited work within easy reach of these proposed apartments which may prove off-putting.
They could, of course, be taken over by the Council en bloc so that they reduce the spend they currently make with a number of hotels and Bed and Breakfasts for those who qualify for “emergency” accommodation. This would not be a new expense but just relocation of where the Council spend their money.
There is quite a bit of work within walking distance, plus good bus and train links to other parts of Wrexham, Chester, Liverpool, Shrewsbury, etc and (at a push) Manchester and Birmingham.
Yes, a very positive move, as you say.
Idiots on Facebook objecting of course because it’s not shops (Wrexham already has too big a retail footprint it’s struggling to fill so I don’t understand this argument). Plus, this is upper floor space which was formerly office space not shops.
The other objection on there is that it’s “more bedsits”. Apartments are not “bedsits” lol.
Given that this seems to have been such a success, bringing lots of people into town as well as giving kids something to do, what’s to say that this couldn’t become a more regular event? Perhaps monthly?
Half the battle is getting people into the habit of coming into town and then you get them spending money and boosting the local economy, etc.
If this is bullying on social media then this is not just a school matter, it’s also for the parents to keep an eye on what their kids are up to. In fact, the school could solve this at a stroke by banning the use of phones and other devices at school – no longer happening at school then.
Bullying happens at every secondary school. Darland is no different
Their staff won’t be paid enough to risk getting harmed by confronting them
All it means is that there’s more chance of the store leaving Wrexham if losses become too much
If you can’t beat em, join em, maybe
At least this is a “positive story” about the innovative way we are dealing with a nationwide problem. It’s a shame that we have to prioritise only the worst ones for the programme instead of all 90 though.
