Wrexham.com you are asking about the Council and what about planning for social housing on the Rhosddu site – if you look at the plot in Council ownership as a whole you will see the bigger picture. Now that the Wellbeing Hub is open on Chester Road staff from Social Service in Greenacres and Cunliffe Centre at the back of the Old Vicarage are now decamping to the new offices – that vacates the whole of the plot for development not just the Vicarage. These plans have been bounced around the system for about 8 years- the Vicarage plot secures the developer (probably Clwyd Alyn for the whole location) – this was in the Council rationalisation plan for centralising Council staff in the Golden Triangle around Waterworld going back to a previous Chief Executive and Strategic Director.
The Wellbeing Hub and the rest of the building is Council owned and run – Health only use for some meetings. The Council are also leaving their Lord Street offices by end of the year and relocating staff in the Hub and Lampit Street- Lord Street is only on a lease that is coming to an end — it will make an ideal Homeless Shelter – homeless people won’t have to walk far to their Lord Street hanging out or begging points outside McDonalds!
JaneJ, sentences like “homeless people won’t have to walk far to their Lord Street hanging out or begging points outside McDonalds!” shouldn’t apply in this day and age.
If someone can get off the boat and end up in a four or five star hotel, why can’t the Government house OUR homeless?
Put them in the Snowdonia Hilton with three meals a day or even Pontins in Prestatyn. We need to look after our own.
JaneJ – Let’s be clear, It was the building owner who demolished the old Stevens/Sidoli building NOT the council.
