    What I’m concerned by is the constant green light being given to large housing developments that often won’t even be housing local people, they’re out of their price range. Yet the local infrastructure clearly can’t handle it. Obviously there’s growing problems on a national level, but we’re not really doing much to help ourselves at a local level on this.[/quote]

    Wrexham’s location as a highly desirable commuter base with Chester, Liverpool and Manchester all within commute range means there’s going to be competition for people to live here and therefore a complete shortage of affordable 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom family homes. This also extends to the private rental market and the council and social housing stock. There is a very low level of these houses for people to move into across the board.

    The only solution they know is – build more houses – which obviously exacerbates problems on local services – healthcare and schools, increases congestion and a lot of these affordable houses meant for first time buyers are a very attractive long term investment proposition and get snapped up by those who already own a home and end up letting them out as a second home for rental for income. In turn the shortage continues and house prices get pushed up.



    There’s strong evidence that Hitler spent several months in Liverpool in 1912.

    I imagine he commuted in from somewhere like Ponciau. He’d have loved it up there and fitted right in.

    Haile Selassie, the Lion of Juda and Emperor of Ethiopia, spent the years of the Second World War in exile in Liverpool.

    Ponciau wouldn’t have worked for him mind, he was more of a Jacko at heart.
