GCC would like to remind residents to take a face mask and a pen or pencil when going to vote.
Glyntraian Community Council is aware that there is a steadily rising groundswell of concern about the future of the main building at the Pontfadog School site, in particular a desire to retain the main building as part of any future development on the site.
The Council has outlined these concerns in a letter to Cllr Mark Pritchard at Wrexham Council, requesting that when negotiations are carried out with the eventual developer, that the community’s concerns and suggestions are considered.
The Council will issue an update once a reply has been received.
It has been brought to the attention of Glyntraian Community Council (GCC) that a questionnaire bearing the Council logo has been circulated in the last 24 hours. GCC would like to make perfectly clear that this was not produced or endorsed in any way by the Council. GCC firmly stands in full support of the recommendation resulting from the independent consultation and supporting questionnaire survey, and the integrity with which it was conducted. GCC confirms that no further questionnaires relating to the future use of the school site will be circulated or endorsed by GCC. We would like to remind all residents that the consultation was completed in February 2020 and GCC voted to accept the recommendation from the final report on 4th March 2020. This was ratified by the Wrexham County Borough Council Executive Board at its meeting on 9th Feb 2021. GCC consider this matter closed.

GCC is aware of many conversations circulating in the community and on local social media sites regarding the Ysgol Pontfadog site. The future of the site was subject to wide consultation with the community through 2019. Regrettably, there are factual inaccuracies and misleading statements from some commentators. Accurate information regarding the entire process, methodology and all GCC Council Meeting Minutes offer full transparency on the decision-making process and are available on the GCC website at: www.glyntraian.org.uk
At yesterday’s meeting of the Wrexham Council Executive Board the members voted unanimously to endorse the recommendation for a small number of low-cost stater homes to be built on the former Pontfadog school site. Follow this link to view the archived webcast from that meeting.
