After the first speaker who pointed out how safe it was to live in this area compared to other parts of the country, the tone was more Wales wide than Wrexham specific. Interesting to see the graph re police numbers , Gwent cut by 23% while the North Wales reduction was the lowest in whole of Wales at 3%.
No problem with extra housing but fear infrastructure will at best lag behind and at worse will not be improved at all. The health provision needs addressing now in advance of the new builds. More GP surgeries and extra bed / theatre provision in the hospital together with the appropriate staffing. We already have a substantial increase in population locally which has had stretched the present provision to its limit. Funding to enable the LDP provisions must be made now !
Hopefully they will be more like ones you see across the country on building sites, that are equipped with kitchens, toilets and heating.February 25, 2018 at 8:22 pm in reply to: Minimum price for alcohol has dangers as people may move to drugs #145285
Compulsory seat belts and no smoking were both vehemently opposed but now accepted. The same applies to a minimum price for a Unit of alcohol, the public would get used to it and businesses would adjust.
Listing seems to have had an effect , craters on junction of Grove Road and Chester have been filled! Someone taking notice .
Perhaps we should start listing them. Grove Road has a few and turn into Chester Road and they are so deep people are swerving to avoid them !!!
The answers provided to the questions should be published either as an addendum to the minutes or in some other form. The public as well as the Councillors have a right to hear the replies. This should be in time for any follow up questions at the next Executive Board Meeting. It comes across as a deliberate ploy to stop the free flow of information and doesn’t embrace open and transparent communication.
The recorded minutes of meetings are important. Minutes are a record of what went on in a meeting and are issued at the following meeting , where mistakes can be put right and they are then signed off as an accurate record. So the Mayor should have signed the Protocol, according to the minutes .
“Interestingly that report reads: “Subject to the approval of the Executive Board, the Co-operation Protocol will be signed at a formal ceremony in Wrexham by the Mayor of Wrexham on behalf of the Council and a representative of the Portuguese Government.”
So the minutes state the signing should have been undertaken by the Mayor, so the question as to why it was done by the Leader of the Council remains unanswered. If the Mayor was unable to attend then the Deputy Mayor steps in not the Leader of the Council. Would be interesting to know the Mayor’s viewpoint on this.
£50,000 income from opening part of the Guildhall car park daily, would be extra income for no initial outlay. How difficult can it be to make such a decision ?
