So, you hate the Crewes, you hate South Walians and you hate progress.
Nice to see the old, local traditions being kept alive.
New homes and new families can only benefit the Village, Llay needs to grow or die but nothing stays the same and prospers.
An increase in population will inevitably see the Village receive a bigger share of the resources from central and local government.
The old tradition that I refer to is the bizarre hate and derision for anyone who is successful in any way, it’s endemic to North Walian towns and villages in a way that I’ve never seen in the South of the Principality.
The Crewe family aren’t selling anyone out, they owe you nothing, nothing at all my dear Captain.
Maybe it’s 40 years of being in the same place that’s the problem, they do say that travel broadens the mind.
Stuart Hall might disagree.

Just to clear up a few points:
The Woodlands Estates on Gresford Road was built on overspill land owned by the Llay Colliery Company.
The Land which is now Singret Hights was built was a Pig Farm owned by the Crewe Family (yes the same Crewe Family) and was sold to build on.
The Meadow Rise Estate was a field owned by the Crewe family (yes same ones).
The Barns at Home Farm were converted and sold by The Crewe Family once again for vast profit.
They have a reputation of buying agricultural land or buildings and converting into residential land without any thought for the locals or the heritage of Llay.
They have also bought a field on the Llay New Road and wont to have permission to build houses on there as well. There is enough Brown land in the area to use for buildings without destroying and removing the green barrier.
Captain C, the Crewe family have farmed the Llay area for generations and have worked very hard to make their endeavours successful.
If you had grown up in the local community, you would, of course, have already known that fact.
I’ve often felt that to be truly despised in North Wales, all one has to achieve is a modicum of honest success.
Nice to see some in the community are keeping the old, local traditions alive.
Simple economics Metalhead, the land is worth far, far more and the Wrexham land doesn’t have a congested underground network of sewers, power lines, comms cables and a Tube network.
Speeding is a more target rich and lucrative market.
Just reading between the lines, Grandad.
Your lines that is.
Aye, live amongst but in my experience, always quietly resented, as illustrated by ‘Grandad’s’ post.

I wonder what part of the U.K., the C.E.O. Andrew Austin lives. Could it be down south or do you think maybe Gresford. Mmm, thats a tough guess.
I’m sorry Saxon, bit that’s just a bit of waffle.
All of those homes built along Gresford Road are sat on what used to be green, agricultural land.
Ie; no different from the current proposal, I am minded of King Canute at this tim.
I would be intrigued to know the average age of the average Llay objectors home.
Just curious like.
