    Plaid are acting like voting this down would have saved Wrexham from ever having houses built again, despite us having 12 years of completely unchecked housing estates granted on appeal… because we had no plan in place.

    Makes sense. He said he was going to back in 2020, and any later than now risks the new leader election interfering with possible General election run-ups.

    We won’t see 20mph go away (get on to your councils for that) but I’m hoping the road building moratorium is lifted by the new leadership – Gething is particularly pro-road.

    Will there be any resignations from the top table and below?

    Lol no, if anything they’ll vote the same way *again* and the High Court will order the council to adopt at another £100k cost to us.

    Lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth about “democracy” too when the council had several lawful opportunities to amend the LDP before the adoption vote.

    Pointing out the population hasn’t increased as much is laughable when the population would probably increase naturally if we actually built enough single family homes for families to have kids in over that period.

    Unfortunately too many councillors are just chasing the NIMBY vote so will make up any old dross. I’m surprised they haven’t rolled out the “we’ll just become a commuter town for England” tripe – didn’t really happen for Llay did it – I know a fair few locals who go their first house there.

    If councillors put as much effort into serious matters as they do chasing NIMBY votes we’d be living in a Utopia.

    It was in Plaid’s 2021 manifesto as it was in Labour’s so I doubt they’d vote against it.

    Weirdly this is the second application for this mast. The first was approved in May. Made me curious about what the state of these are:

    • P/2023/0208 – St Giles way, Wrexham – REFUSED – “spoiling the street scene”.
    • P/2023/0313 – Outside Ramada – GRANTED
    • P/2023/0282 – Chester Road, outside St Margarets – REFUSED – “spoiling the street scene”
    • P/2023/0265 – Amanda Grove, Rhostyllen – REFUSED – “spoiling the street scene”
    • P/2023/0239 – Long Lane And Darby Road, Brynteg – GRANTED
    • P/2023/0207 – Bottom Road And Bryn Coed, Gwersyllt – GRANTED
    • P/2023/0303 – Kingsmills Road, Wrexham – GRANTED
    • P/2023/0351 – Box Lane And Jeffreys Road, Wrexham – REFUSED – “spoiling the street scene”
    • P/2023/0352 – Park Avenue, Wrexham – REFUSED – “spoiling the street scene”

    Half of the applications rejected for spoiling the street scene with no rhyme or reason as to why, given many of those refused are just humdrum inner suburbs, not a national park.

    All councils in England and Wales have to have an development plan. It’s literally the law.

    As for who is forcing us to have the one just thrown out – that’ll be the high court.

    Someone needs to go back in time and tell Victorian London it can’t be a city because it hasn’t got a mobile signal.

    Well, after the appeal failed in January McDonalds are back with a fresh attempt at the same development on Plas Coch, this time with mitigation against the phosphates (not sure what that is).
