    ooooo Bore off! change the record and embrace it. I assume you lot are from the “back in my day” & “it’s not like it used to be” club! Perhaps instead of winging about it , you actually went there spent, some money and at least looked like you were having a good time the place will thrive and flourish! It’s here nowt and you can do about it. so enjoy it!

    WOW. I have been there and I’m not impressed at all. So don’t have a rant at people who have been there having a moan about the money the council are wasting.

    But it’s something positive, how could people possibly cope! I often wonder if these people moaning would only stop if Wrexham became the place they ‘supposedly’ don’t want to see it become. Get with the times, stop being an arm chair politician all you are doing is dragging the town down!

    Its all very well Atkinson calling everyone who objects to the ‘Accommodation’ Lets put him to the test ! There is a parcel of land in Gresford opposite the Plough that has been an eyesore and junkyard for years, let’s built the accommodation there in his ‘back yard’. Let him come out publicly and state that he would support such a project in Gresford. Let him come out and say he will actively work with the council to find land and accommodate this development in Gresford ! Following the Gresford project, there will be less grounds for councillors refusing or abstaining from similar plans in other areas. Put your ‘Money Where your Mouth is” and “What’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander” over to you Atkinson. GRESFORD FOR THE ACCOMMODATION.

    Nothing has been said over objecting, it’s more about the comments made by a few elected members.

    Some shocking comments made and not forgetting Cllr Jones’s “should be built as if it was a prison”. What a way to reach out to people in need of help.

    I’m confused, seen this being quoted as a Tory budget but now Independents?

    Who cares? But the man does make a valid point. What happened to that budget? That was the one I was looking forward to viewing!

    The Council have put in £1.5 million into this project. Plus the Council have given car park revenue to Ty Pawb. Plus the Council have given the rent revenue from the surrounding shops to Ty Pawb. Plus the Council will have to subsidise this project for up to 10 years. This is all revenue that could have been used for front line services. You may not have seen anything that indicates Ty Pawb has taken money away from frontline services, but they are using the revenue generated from car parking/shops previously used for frontline services for Ty Pawb.

    I’m confused on the Rent revenues aren’t they privately owned buildings? Business rate go to the Welsh Government? I also thought parking revenues went back into transport department coffers. You could be right but as I’ve said I’ve seen nothing on the contrary and highly doubt these revenues contributed to frontline services. Must be remindful that a lot of scaremongering appears around budgets as people like to use it as a political weapon.

    No one could ever accuse Gresford’s Andrew Atkinson of being camera shy, I will bet all comers he will be snapped at the reopening of McDonald, Pappa John’s, and the proposed new coffee shop within the same building. For those unfamiliar with this self publicising individual, fear not, local publications will be clattered in his photo over the coming months, Ty Pawb opening, Techniquest launch, King Street bus station refurb, local scout groups that raise anything over a quid, all the low hanging fruit, all you could ever NOT want in a local politician.

    Yes because you never see our MP or AM snatching any photo opportunity they get?

    He’s obviously got under the skin of Labour in Wrexham. Reading these infantile posts i’ve come up with a brilliant idea, lets have a men only council with a minimum age of 75, you know like it used to be under Labour. Whatever you do, do NOT have young people from various trades on the council as this could upset the old boys club that used to exist.

    He certainly has, maybe it’s because he taken the certainty of Wrexham being a safe seat? Council still of age though most I see must have reached retirement age! Younger people need good representation and hopefully he will prove he’s the right man for the job

    Don’t be scared of culture people! You may enjoy it

    No problem with culture, if it does not effect front line services. Everything has a purpose it’s just the cost.

    Valid point but we are becoming a stagnant town, forgotten by Cardiff, lack of interest with our MP and AM. Something had to give we have a real lack of new initiative culture, sure we’ve got heritage but to go forward we need a base to entice the arts here. It’s valuable for our future generations, hopefully in time it will prove a real asset to the town and in turn boost our economy. I haven’t seen anything that indicates Ty Pawb has taken money away from frontline services.
