PLANS to turn an old toilet block into a community hub are amongst the latest applications to be received by Wrexham Council.

The proposal would see a derelict toilet block at Rossett park demolished and in its place construction on a community hub.

The Leader: The toilet block as it stands currently. The toilet block as it stands currently.

According to planning documents, a public consultation has found that there would interest in using the hub as a venue for family and community events, post office outreach and mobile library services, club activities; sports, wellness, hobby groups and special interests and workshops led by community businesses.

There is also interest in using it as a base for community outreach groups to reduce social isolation.

It is hoped the hub will have catering facilities to offer refreshments, and strong internet connectivity to facilitate people without home internet.

Planning documents state that the building has been subject to anti-social behaviour in recent years. The building would be developed within the Welsh Government's net-zero target and would be powered by renewable energy sources.
