A PROPOSED planning development will cause more stress to local residents, says Wrexham's MP.

Sarah Atherton MP has shown her support for the 'Hillock Lane Action Group', aimed at stopping the proposed development of 116 new homes along Chester Road.

She said: "I have been contacted by a number of residents, concerned with the proposed Hillock Lane development.

"As our population and economy continue to grow it is natural that Wrexham will need more houses, this also means we have to take action to ensure houses built in our area are of the right number, in the right place, and that our infrastructure can cope with increased demand.

"However, the local facilities and infrastructure cannot cope with the increased demand, as a result of the development on Hillock Lane, and will lead to undue stress for Gresford and Marford residents on both sides of Chester Road.

"Further, the proposal will result in the loss of precious green spaces, that are pivotal to the community. We must do all that we can to protect our green spaces, that once lost are gone forever."
