    A series of Wakes would be more appropriate, but I doubt the dim-witted, racist brexit voters will understand that. No need to comment, I’m out of here.

    Typical lack of foresight and cooperation/coordination between council departments. The work is carried out by a Contractor, but is ordered/contracted by the Council departments, probably Highways being one of those departments. Works to supply drainage, or connections to buildings other than council houses/buildings, ie. work private properties and constructions are subject to planning applications etc. The breakdown, or lack of communications which causes unnecessary disruption or destruction of new works such as road surfacing, needs to be investigated promptly and the system used brought up to date, or a new procedure put in place. Before Christmas, after the road had remained unsurfaced with iron works exposed for some time, I telephoned the council department pointing out the risks to vehicles and possible claims for damages from car owners. The council had the new surface in place within days of my contacting them. Now the present disruption is causing problems. This problem has occurred on other occasions and really needs prompt reviewing of the procedures in place.

    IMHO .. I am assuming that your name here is intended to represent ‘In my humble opinion’. If that is so, try being a little more ‘humble’ before criticising and insulting the Language of Wales. The land that I presume you live in.

    Of course none should be left to fall down, nor to be mysteriously ‘pushed’ down or similar. All Buildings with Heritage in Wrexham should, if not occupied, be made safe and weather proof by the council. Let’s face it, any costs involved do not come solely from the pockets of the councillors, nor the council officers. Grants are available and the availability of any grants is often investigated by the various existing Heritage Organisations in the area. Ultimate uses for the Saved properties should also be investigated once their existence is SECURED. Possible future uses will be varied and determined by the controls and historic covenants etc. that some properties may have in that respect. A caring and sensitive approach must always be the basis of future development, an approach that is based on liking and loving your area and its history.

    I feel that it should also be noted, in regard to Our heritage, that the sudden council ‘decision’ to form a body to look after Wrexham Heritage in all its forms, may also be an attempt to sideline those organisations who are already successful in the field of Our Local Heritage. These organisations have proven themselves to be knowledgeable, capable and impartial. Any ‘Heritage Body’ formed by the council would, by definition, be CONTROLLED and INFLUENCED by the executive board and certain ‘officers’. In view of past evidence, I do not think that this would be a healthy thing for Wrexham County Borough. Your thoughts….?

    This move by Wrecksam Council, could be seen as a move designed to sideline the already well established

      Save Our Heritage

    Group. A group of Volunteers who have no personal profitable interest in the Heritage they protect.

      Save Our Heritage

    also perform all the tasks of sourcing cash awards and grants, and campaigning against philistine wrecking moves by the present council and private concerns. Very suspicious moves by this council.. No elections on the horizon are there?? Or maybe it being done because of suggestions made by self-interested council officers, you know, the one’s who are ultimately employed by, and paid by us, the

      Electorate

    . Just some points to ponder on!

    Let the Office of Mayor be unpaid, apart from travel expenses. It is an honorary post. Let it be travel expenses only and travel by Council organised transport.

    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.

    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’.
