    This approved 50+ apartments in Henblas Street?
    Where is the refuse ending up from the aforementioned development? On the street? Bang in the town centre? When the Council is considering 3-weekly black bin collection? Rubbish piling up in one of Wrexham town centre for weeks? Besides? It’s proven not suitable to have flats above empty business premises which inevitably get boarded up. Vandalism. Anti-social behaviour.
    No parking? Or are the abodes aimed at people without cars? What sort of clientele is the Council looking for?
    How much of Wrexham town centre’s vacant commercial property has recently been approved as HMO’s, flats etc without parking, adequate provision for refuse collection etc?

    There’s no signs up but, Wrexham is twinned with the German district of Märkischer Kreis..

    Give it a year or two…we’ll be twinned with Telford as well..

    It’ll be interesting to see what punishment the Magistrates Court dishes out to this latest individual caught with a blade?
    The last guy hauled before Court had snorted a load of cocaine, and took a big kitchen knife to town and started waving it about on High St…He got.. ‘A three month prison sentence suspended for 18 months and he was placed on rehabilitation and sent on a ’35 sessions thinking skills course’.

    In the UK the law guidelines state ‘Possession of a knife can carry a prison sentence of up to 4 years even if it’s not use’

    It’s a bit of a mockery then if you can stick a load of chemicals up your nose, reach for the kitchen drawer, and head to town with a large kitchen knife in fear of being referred to rehab and having to attend boring ‘Thinking Skills’ classes?
    Not reassuring to Joe Public is it? Wonder how the arresting officers felt about the Court outcome. He wasn’t even fined because he was on benefits? 180 hours unpaid work and he was ordered to pay £85 costs. He could afford cocaine though…

    Despite having one of the largest Industrial Estate in Europe, Wrexham seemingly was ‘in the dark’ when the EU borders came down and thousands of migrant workers descended on the town. Absolutely no planning whatsoever…
    We just couldn’t cope. A ‘Mickey Mouse’ bus service 5-miles away from the town centre and railway station etc. Nothing has changed in 2018…
    Anti-social problems with parking, HMO’s etc etc It’s been a disaster!
    The Maelor Hospital was struggling back then. The population had outgrown the Hospital. Admissions from barmouth, Bala etc. Now, there’s 6 ambulance visits a day at HMP Berwyn…

    There’s been absolutely no planning whatsoever. Biggest Industrial Estate in Europe. Biggest Super Prison in Europe… Biggest neglect as well. We could do with a second hospital in Wrexham now.

    Very interesting Molly!

    I’m sure you can appreciate my initial scepticism though, as I was unable, in this day and age, to find any information regarding JUST50 on the Internet. Especially, with the illustrated flyer doing the rounds on Social Media.

    Simon, I am sure the food will arrive cold coming from Derwen College, Oswestry, Shropshire SY11 3JA and the account is a Barclays account in Flint.

    Owain Glyndwr I hope not too many people, companies etc have fallen for this!

    Oh go on then….

    I’m suspicious (without checking at this time of night) that this is a scam

    There’s no excuse for anyone to start dumping their rubbish in Car parks though is there?

    It’s only the HQ that is moving, the station is staying in essentially the same location (the Library 2 minutes walk away).

    The station in Blacon is just that, a station, not an HQ.

    You know what I mean. Chester’s Police H.Q has been moved to Blacon. Wrexham’s Police H.Q is moving to Llay.
    Joe Public is wondering why Wrexham Police H.Q is moving away from some of the most deprived wards in Europe. An area which suffers inner-city crime etc
    It’s almost as if the Police have given up on Queens Park and Wrexham town centre? Hightown? Rhosddu etc?

    Why move from such an ideal venue so close to the action?

    Blacon Parade, the equivalent to Prince Charles Road, in recent times has undergone a massive regeneration. Blacon Parade is now a cheerful, well-lit place with thriving businesses and shops. Until Prince Charles Road is subject to the same regeneration, you can’t really envisage any change to the anti-social behaviour etc there. The trade is there with the Co-Op, takeaways etc. The place just needs regenerating. The Red Dragon looks awful. It’s like a statement of the Council’s neglect to the area.
