WREXHAM residents are being urged to help 'shape the future' of the city centre via a consultation.

Wrexham Council launched its Placemaking Plan last month, giving residents the chance to voice their opinions.

The council say they want the Plan to promote better design and development, and help establish more appealing social, cultural, economic uses and activities in the city centre.

The aim is to make Wrexham the number one destination for people from across the area, as the place for shopping, working, learning, culture and entertainment. 

Now, following a visit to Ty Pawb in the city centre, Sam Rowlands MS is urging locals to have their say on the consultation.

Mr Rowlands, Member of the Welsh Parliament for North Wales, says his visit to Ty Pawb allowed him to see 'first hand' the investment Wrexham council is making in the city.

He added: "I am pleased to see Wrexham County Borough Council asking for the views of local people as I think it is vitally important they have a say on what they want to see in Wrexham city centre.

“I was very impressed with the resource (at Ty Pawb) which brings together the market and the arts along with several street food stalls in the centre of this vibrant city.

"It has a very community feel and I am sure the venture will be a success."

Mr Rowlands also raised the sky-rocketing profile of Wrexham AFC as another example of how the area is thriving.

He said: "Apart from investment in the centre we are also seeing the huge success of Wrexham AFC, which is excellent news for the future. I would urge anyone who has a view to take part in the consultation.”

Wrexham's growth and ambition has also been raised significantly through the award of City Status for the whole County Borough. 

Advancing to the final stage of the 2025 City of Culture has also helped put Wrexham on the map, and of course, there’s also the global spotlight on Wrexham AFC following the Hollywood takeover.

To take part in the consultation, you can also attend the final drop in session being held at Tŷ Pawb on Saturday, April 8 from 12-4pm. The closing date is April 21.
