‘Masterplan’ Will Shape and Transform Wrexham Town Centre


Plans that could shape and transform the future of Wrexham Town Centre over the next decade are set to be formally adopted next week.

Details of Wrexham’s ‘Town Centre Masterplan’ were unveiled in October 2015, providing a strategic vision that could shape the town centre over the next ten years, with over 300 people taking part in the recent consultation on its contents.

The Masterplan will become part of the planning framework of Wrexham as part of the evidence base of the forthcoming Local Development Plan (LDP) and its subsequent formal adopting, meaning the Masterplan will be a ‘framework for decision making for proposals within the Masterplan area’.

The hefty 84 page document laid out proposals for the town centre, including retail, new housing and further pedestrianisation (to name but a few things!)

forthcoming report to Councillors explains the: “Town centre strategy promotes the creation of a town centre destination, improved public space, a diversified mix of leisure, arts and culture supported by development of niche and specialist retailing.
