Nine Acre Field consultation

Wrexham Council has launched a public consultation to get feedback on plans to put a school on the Nine Acre Field.

The proposals involve building a new school for around 315 pupils, along with 45 nursery places, and St Mary’s Catholic Primary School recently informed parents it would like to move to the site.

The consultation – which runs until April 9 – will give residents, parents, community groups and other interested parties the chance to have their say.


Drop-in session

As well as an online questionnaire, there’s also a drop-in session at the Memorial Hall in Wrexham on Thursday, March 19, between 3.30pm and 7pm, where people can learn more and share their views.

The feedback will be used to help the council’s education service understand how people feel about the proposals, before potentially submitting a formal planning application.

Football training ground

The Nine Acre Field, which sits off Chester Road, Westminster Drive and Rhosnesni Lane, is currently used as a training ground by Wrexham Football Club.

However, the club has been working with the council on plans to move to a new purpose-built training facility next to the old Groves secondary school off Penymaes Avenue.

Have your say

Councillor Phil Wynn, Wrexham Council’s Lead Member for Education, says: “Everyone interested in these proposals should take part in the consultation, and I would also encourage people to attend the drop-in session at the Memorial Hall.

“It’s really important we understand people’s views before the scheme moves forward.”
