I had to look way back to find the application for the extension – it was submitted back in March.
Condition 14 of the original consent suggests that the promoters will have to design and pay for any required improvements to the Halton Roundabout – maybe that’s one of the causes for the delay?November 30, 2016 at 10:02 am in reply to: Wrexham Council employees to spend less in local shops and make money #123591
It sounded to me like a standard discount scheme that a lot of large employers offer.
Usually you have to buy a minimum value of gift vouchers/gift cards online at a slight discount and wait for them to come in the post. The Wrexham scheme sounds much more convenient.
Regarding this particular set of roadworks, the immediate area around the junction was in quite a bad way (by by no means the worst bit of road in the county) but a much longer length of road has been resurfaced – which is OK it will need doing one day.
I don’t think anyone minds the road being resurfaced, it’s the delays being caused by the traffic lights which seem to spend a very long time on red in all directions.
It does seem to take a very long time to resurface a road in Wrexham – 3 weeks now for Llangollen Road. Was it about 5 weeks just to do the crossroads in Johnstown? If it lasts for years I suppose it’s worth it….
In some countries they just chop all the trees down to stop the problem.
Network Rail have a special train for cleaning all the leaf mulch off the rails. I guess they decided not to bother sending it on the Wrexham-Bidston line this year.October 13, 2016 at 3:30 pm in reply to: Ambitious Plans to Increase Welsh Speakers in Wrexham Backed by Councillors #120801
It would appear that the only real way to make a difference would be through schools with Welsh being cumpulsory with through bilingual education.
Welsh was compulsory when I was at school. Unfortunately because I’ve not had the opportunity to use in the many years since then I’ve forgotten most of it (same with the other languages I learnt at school for that matter).
If people use the language on a day to day basis then it’s useful to teach it at school.
I check individual companies’ websites, but you have to know who is around so you know where to look. Word of mouth is also a good way and a lot of companies offer finders fees because it saves them advertising or having to sift through lots of inappropriate CVs.
I’ve had no success with recruitment agencies.
Isn’t this a well used tactic to say “we did a consultation but hardly had any responses”?
The server for the budget consultation is down at the moment so I can’t do that. I think one of the proposals is to reduce the hours of the call centre – the one that is already closed when most people get home from work and need to report that their bin hasn’t been emptied…August 26, 2016 at 12:51 pm in reply to: councillors or bin men in the frame – guilty or not #118412
most people dont contact the council with their complaints. They will rant and rave on social media and forums. ok so your bin has been missed, tell your friends and your family and whoever else is watching but i bet none of them will empty it for you. Phone the council! How can they send someone to empty it if they dont know.
My bin was half emptied on Monday (the bin men fished the black bag out but left everything else!). I reported it to the council online on Monday and I’ve heard nothing other than getting an automated acknowledgement.
Maybe I should’ve ranted and raved on social media instead :)August 22, 2016 at 11:30 am in reply to: Recycling ‘Wheelie Boxes’ To Be Rolled Out To 13,000 Wrexham Properties #118130
We don’t have the new boxes, but the people at the bottom of the road do.
We are on a different rota to the houses at the bottom so maybe they have given the boxes to the A rounds but not the B round? (or vice versa).
Do the new boxes get emptied into a different sort of wagon? If they do, maybe they are waiting for the new wagons to arrive to cover elsewhere.
Toiledau cyhoeddus = public toilets?
Not an exact translation of the English but seems OK to me unless I’m missing something?
