Supporting an Indigenous Language

Mr Lawrence Isted,
Chief Planning Officer
Wrexham County Borough Council,
Lambpit St,
LL11 1AR

Dear Mr Isted,

I write to you in support of Planning application P2010/0881 (The new Welsh School on Delamere Avenue, Gwersyllt). My reasons for supporting the applications are:
1. There is a big demand for Medium Welsh Education in Gwersyllt
2. To improve educational facilities in Gwersyllt as Ysgol Plas Coch is overcrowded and oversubscribed.
3. The School Building Improvement Grant of £4.2 million is site specific
4. That the site that has been chosen despite being outside the settlement is suitable for a school and will enhance the area.
5. The plans accord with the Unitary Development Plan.
6. There will be minimal impact on the character or appearance of the area as the school will only take up a small proportion of the available land and there is ample other Public Open Spaces in that ward.
7. The other seven options for locating the Welsh school have been assessed and discounted with only the Delamere Avenue site being found suitable.
8. A £6 million development will bring economic and employment opportunities to the area.
9. There will be little impact on residential amenity i.e hours of opening will be mainly 8 till 4, 5 days a week, 39 weeks a year, there will be no noise and the building will not be high or dominant, 
10. Children currently travel by car to Plas Coch, therefore by having a school nearby children may walk to school.
11. There will be 20mph speed limits outside the school and traffic calming to address any road safety issues.
12. The development will create additional amenity to local people i.e additional playing field.
I would be grateful if you could copy this letter to all members of the Planning Committee prior to the application being heard.

Yours sincerely,

(Insert name & address)
