Levelling Up Wrexham

In March 2021, the Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced a £4.8b capital scheme for ‘high value local infrastructure investment’ from the UK Government to level up towns and cities.

I am pleased that Wrexham County Borough Council (WCBC) will be submitting a bid, which I have assisted with and am fully supporting, that will revolve around the already approved Masterplan for the Wrexham Gateway.

The WCBC bid will have an 'ask' of £18.2m, that will revolve around the redevelopment of the KP stand at the Wrexham Football Club's Racecourse ground. This bid has been developed with the new owners and management team of Wrexham Football Club and will aim to level up Wrexham by assisting with the regeneration of the 'gateway' to the town. 

Going forward, I will be working with the UK Government to make sure that the benefits of Wrexham's bid to our town and the wider region and recognised so that our town and our community can benefit from this UK Government funding.
