    Having just read Wrexham.com’s article on the planning application for houses on a garage site in Rhostyllen I was struck by the inclusion of the idea that £10,000 would be available towards a pedestrian crossing on the Wrexham Road. It comes across as almost being a bribe , which I am sure is not allowed. Also who pays the bill for the rest of the cost of a pedestrian crossing ?

    It does indeed appear to be a bribe, but it’s very common practice.
    They’re called section 106 agreements where the developers pay the council to provide or improve infrastructure (schools, roads, cycle routes) in the area in return for being granted planning permission.

    Its an interesting one this. How come planning was given for the houses just the other side of GTH. It is on the same road, one unit along and further away from the village.

    As there is already a noise issue at the site, it would make the land useless to be redeveloped for another industrial use. Would the council prefer yet another derelict building in the county?

    In addition the removal of the Bersham Colliery spoil tip will also create noise and dust in that area over a fairly long period of time, if the project reaches completion. What proposals are there for that land use after the spoil tip is removed?

    The last I heard was the area was to be made into a country park AKA Hafod spoil tip. Although the 10 yrs it will take is a long time in planninmg, so who knows what we will end with.

    I think it’s fair enough them putting money towards the crossing as long as it does protect pedestrians. They’re in a bit of a catch 22 situation where they can’t carry out their commercial work due to council regulation, but they try and come up with a solution and they’re blocked by them once again.

    I imagine selling the land with planning permission would also raise the funds necessary for Imperial Commercials to even move in the first place. No houses, no move.
