- Cllr Neil Rogers, Leader Wrexham County Borough Council
Wrexham Council is proposing to close Plas Madoc Leisure Centre and other leisure services. It has not made these plans public so far but we understand there are consultants looking at potential savings and that all swimming pools and other leisure centres are under threat.
Closing these pools is a short-sighted decision. It will mean fewer children learn to swim, with potentially tragic results. It will reduce opportunities for exercise for young and old alike at a time when we are meant to be combatting inactivity.
The council is cutting back on frontline services without tackling its own bureaucracy and overspending.
We, the undersigned, request that Wrexham Council abandons plans to close Plas Madoc and other leisure facilities in the county.
