PLANS for a large-scale development which could generate more than 1,500 jobs are going on public display.
Last month the Leader reported on the ambitious Ruabon scheme, which includes a supermarket, more than 300 homes and new employment space.
Although planning permission already exists for a business park on land south of Ruabon near the A483, site owners Wynnstay Farming are now looking to update the proposals.
It is expected the overall development could create more than 1,500 jobs, as well as employment opportunities involved in the construction work.
As part of the consultation process, the developers say they are particularly keen for people’s views on how the scheme could work alongside the existing community.
The plans will be on display at two locations.
On Friday they will be exhibited at the Wynnstay Arms in Ruabon, from 10am to 7.30pm.
Then, on Saturday, they will be on show at Plas Madoc Leisure Centre from 10am to 4pm.
The development team will be displaying proposals for the new store, employment space and homes, including artist’s impressions illustrating how the scheme might look when it is built.
Spokesman Richard Brown stressed how important it was that opinions from the public were expressed.
“We are looking forward to engaging with residents and community representatives alike on these exciting plans for the site and would encourage as many people as possible to attend the public exhibition,” he said.
“We would like to invite everyone in the area to our public exhibition so they can see the plans for themselves and have their say.
“There will be a full team on hand ready to talk about all aspects of what we are proposing.
“We’ll be using people’s feedback to finalise the plans before submitting a planning application to Wrexham Council.”
