Coxon should back off and shut up about Wrexham. He has GONE. He caused enough problems whilst he was here, and also speaks rubbish about the Listed Building the former Groves School. I have in my possession a wealth of material about the building, the people behind the design and founding of the building, dating as far back as 1906 and before. I have historical information about letters and communications from such people as Lady Churchill and others. I also know the quality of the building, and the architectural merit of the building.
Does he think that CADW don’t do extensive research into the subject of any proposed listing, before listing is granted. Does he not realise that once CADW have reached a conclusion regarding a propose listing, then their work is subject to examination and verification by English Heritage.
He states that the building has ‘no architectural merit’. I would suggest that as far as architectural merit is concerned he is totally ignorant. He should stick to his own field, and back off. We in Wrexham don’t need his sort nor their interference.July 25, 2018 at 11:27 pm in reply to: Kingdom Zero Tolerance video evidence blocked by Wrexham Council bureaucracy #153446
Odd to that the Legal Officer makes comment and decisions… shades of coxon, who is still interfering with so called Wrexham Council affairs (see Twitter and Ian Lucas)…. may be time to stop interference by so called Council Officers…. where matters affect THE ELECTORATE OF WREXHAM… HEAR THAT WREXHAM COUNCIL AND YOUR EMPLOYEES???? THE ELECTORATE… YES YOUR REAL BOSSES. Now to speak with the Political Ombudsman…. for a total reforming of the Council, and possible sacking of some so called ‘Officers’.
Just an observation on the new frontage of the Guildhall it would appear to be open ended.
In the statement by the Leader of the Council, he states that the frontage will reduce anti social behaviour and increase security of the building.
My questions are 1. How does this frontage reduce anti social behaviour. 2. How does an open ended frontage increase the security of the building and staff.
I would suggest that at a time of fiscal difficulties and cuts in services perhaps this is the wrong time to spend the reported £11,000 on a project which appears to be purely a cosmetic job on the frontage of the building.
The only conclusion I can make from the report is that perhaps Clr Pritchard is in fact a Dalek and therefore does not like stairs.
Hmmm…. Very Appropriate……. DESTROY!….DESTROY!…..DESTROY!….
The website is abyssmal, it looks as if it was thrown together by an amateur, not a professional web designer. This is regardless of the content.
The content is confusing (probably intentional) and no one could imagine the vast majority of the electorate understanding it.
I suggest that Councillors start again, but this time without the help of Any council employees, no matter what their level in the heirarchy.May 22, 2018 at 11:56 am in reply to: Will Cllr Pritchard loose the Leadership of the Council tomorrow!! #149449
It is ‘Broke’. High time for a change and changes.
I think it is high time that WCBC Executive Board, and especially the set up and responsibilities of the various department ‘Leads’, be questioned and Investigated by the Political Ombudsman. The way this council is set up is undemocratic in the extreme.
A Staffordshire Fire & Rescue tender went past Aldi at Llangollen today. Nothing to get excited about though.
I doubt they get excited down at the Royal Stoke University Hospital when a Welsh ambulance turns up either.
I doubt they would too, as no Welsh ambulances would be Available to turn up.
Derek Fisher. You state that the building is ‘derelict’. That is not so, and I as a professional in this field can tell you now, as I stated in the Leader, the School is Structurally SOUND. What is more it DOES meet 21st Century standards and requirements. Speak when you know, not out of ignorance and bias. Now I am done with this backward, pointless thread.
Derek Fisher, It was Not Plaid Cymru who instigated the saving of the former Groves and Grove Park Girls Grammar School. Rather it was a group of people who were and are concerned at the disappearing heritage of Wrexham and area. That group of people are now known as SOH or Save OUR Heritage. They have many many supporters in the Wrexham area. They are people who know more than a little about History, Architecture, and Worth, unlike some folk. As for the Listing… I put the request in for the Building to be Listed on their behalf. I too know more than a little about the history of Wrexham, the Worth of Buildings and especially in this case, the history, heritage, architectural worth, and past individuals involved in the building, the teaching and the actual construction of the School. I could say more, but do not intend writing a book here, nor will I get into fractious arguements with those who have no knowledge of the historic worth, and the architectural worth of that building.
The figure of £1.1 million spent since 2015 is a lie .. a total lie. As for Asbestos, do you realise that before a building can be demolished any asbestos has to be removed from it. That, is LAW. This present arguement is a futile attempt by a Council Exec board who are not worth their salt.
