Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help gain Legal Representation to fight the proposed Permanent Gypsy / Traveller camp on Pont Y Capel Lane in Llay, Wrexham
- Llay, Wrexham, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Wrexham Borough Council (WBC) are in the process of putting the New Local Development Plan (LDP) together. The LDP is up for consultation at the moment, which ends 31st May 2018.
WBC propose to locate a permanent Gypsy and Traveller site off Llay New Road.
As a community we should have several concerns about not only the selection process, but also the location (next to Llay Cemetary) and the irreversible environmental impact this will have on the area.
The fund has been setup to seek professional legal advice in a bid to help stop the proposal by WBC. The fund will be used for:
Advertising and raising awareness of the proposal
For far to long have the people of Llay been dumped on by WBC and now it's time for the community to stand up and be counted! Let's show the council that they can't just do whatever they want without a fight.
Any donation no matter how big or small will help fight this worthy cause.
Reasons for refusal:
The site is within a green barrier
The site is part of Alyn Waters Country Park
The site is classed as Special Landscaped Area
The site lies adjacent to Worms Wood a protected site
The covenant on the land specifies that the land should be used for recreational activities
Protected species that have habitats on the land I.e badgers and Bats
The extra pressure that this will put on an already struggling infrastructure.
