    It does look rough that area of town.
    Little did I know in the Eighties, dancing to Bob Marley at Peppers, that the venue would become a shrine to him when 900+ marijuana plants were discovered there a few years ago. Incredibly, more plants were found at other properties owned by the proprietor. What bad luck? Having places you own targeted by criminals? The perils of being a landlord. Bad luck.
    The area looks rough.

    A Council doesn’t inspire confidence when it builds Eagles Meadow (and forgets a roof) for something like £112m, and sells it for £78m.

    That’s a multi-million write off?

    Where, and what has the money been spent on in Queensway 1?

    I’ve known long-standing families who have lived in Queensway 1 for
    years.
    Sadly though, I’d cautiously say, that a large majority of vacant
    properties become a dumping ground for problem people. People with
    drink and drug issues.
    If money has been pumped into the area, where? The shops etc have
    the same graffiti on them that they had 10, 15 years ago?

    Where has the money been spent???? Is it comparable to what they’ve done to The Parade, Blacon? I don’t think so. :confused:

    £5 for 2-hours parking at a shopping venue which ticks all the NO boxes? No roof? A wobbly journey over Wrexham’s ‘Bridge Over The River Kwai’? A crap Spanish fountain, mobile phone shops….. What about the disabled? O.A.P’S? A fiver?

    I’m gutted. Devastated. This is going to mean the Council is going to up the prices for the parking on St George’s Crescent when I’m going for fish and chips at Jones’. And it’s going to be much harder to find a parking space there :confused:

    People smoke weed freely around Acton. Even mixing with off-duty coppers in the Bookies, shops etc.
    The amount of smack deals going on around there is more worrying. People sitting on the wall like little birds waiting to be fed. People drawing up on bikes & cars. Quick handshakes….and N.A.S.A Control we have lift off!!! Chester Street, the Guild Hall and Waterworld make up Wrexham’s ‘Golden Triangle’. It’s so obvious to see what’s going on.

    I suppose it’s the same in every city and town.

    Can you imagine the excitement on the London Evening Standard if the Met Tweeted pictures of a raid using the ‘Universal key’? A Hartley’s jam jar a quarter full of marijuana! So what? You can walk in to a Bookies on the outskirts of Wrexham, where the CID enjoy a bet. The smell of weed is overwhelming. They don’t give a toss. And quite rightly so. So what?

    The ‘Travellers’ will be gone soon from this unauthorised encampment. They are more than familiar with the law than the average Police officer. All they do is move on to the next venue for a further 48-72 hours. It could be the hospital car park, anywhere.
    It is low-priority for NWP. Any Police force. Just like neighbourly disputes etc
    This will carry on untill the law is changed. Alyn Waters, Wrexham Industrial Estate, Queensway Stadium etc. The only safeguard is to make it difficult for encroachment.
    Why we’ve made a Police traffic car redundant on Rhosddu Community car park for nearly 72-hours beggars belief.

    How can you concentrate on your job when you’re on your mobile phone most of the time reporting mundane policing? How did we all cope before mobile phones? GOOD OLD FASHIONED POLICING!
