    I set the page up so I don’t want to skew everybody’s ideas by posting my suggestions, let’s hear what Llan residents have to say

      Sainsbury’s have decided a 34,000 square feet supermarket is not viable on the site so it will be difficult to let to another supermarket. A better use for the site might be housing and parking, with luxury homes on the river side and affordable homes towards the A5. Business units could also be incorporated in the project. Parking could be sited between the houses / business units and the Riverside Park with an attractive access route through the park to bring people into the town. This would increase footfall in shops and revenue to the Council.

    When Cilmedw was approved for development for the new factory, the stated justification was it would herald more development for skilled, well-paid jobs. I think this should be enshrined in the redevelopment of the old factory, and I very much want it to be sublet as Llangollen’s Technology Park providing a whole range of careers in new and emerging technologies because we need to provide our excellent students from Ysgol Dinas Bran with the kinds of future they deserve and stop the brain drain to the cities. New startups will be good for Llangollen, North Wales and the entire Welsh economy.

      When J Ross and Dobson & Crowther presented the project to the Llangollen Chamber of Trade & Tourism in November 2011, they told members that when the new factory was being built a further 8 acres of infrastructure would be put in at the same time to attract small businesses to the area. This never materialised. Perhaps now is the opportunity to carry out that promise on the Sainsbury’s site?
