This article is old - Published: Wednesday, Jan 6th, 2016

The business case for the Arts Hub has been released this morning after Wrexham Council decided to make it open to all ahead of a meeting later today.

Further to the meeting yesterday morning the business plan document has been put into the public domain by Wrexham Council formally this morning. Previously it was said the document was not to be made public after ‘legal advice’ due to it containing commercially sensitive information.

note before Councillors who will scrutinise it later today says: “…following consultation between the Lead Member and the Proper Officer, it has been agreed that it is in the public interest to bring forward the following item on the Agenda and that it be considered as a Part I item.

Previously we have written on some of the contents while the report was not public, namely the rise in parking charges contained in it, plus various financial figures and quotes.

The PDF document can be found on the Wrexham Council website here. The document is 19 megabytes so may take time to download.

Also in the spirit of openness the ‘Plan B’ referred to in yesterdays Town Centre Forum meeting and circulated to many members, has been sent to by the Chairman Nigel Lewis, and on querying if it was approve to upload we were told we are able to do as we wish.

Therefore for reference the “The Regeneration of the Peoples Market Wrexham R5” Microsoft Word document is available here.

The Employment, Business and Investment Scrutiny Committee will examine the first document, the Arts Hub business plan, this afternoon at 4pm in what now is a near total public meeting.
