Aled Roberts calls for all options to be investigated before former Groves High School is demolished
Liberal Democrat North Wales Assembly Member Aled Roberts and the Group of Lib Dem Wrexham councillors are calling on the council to investigate all options for the former Groves High School before it is too late and the buildings are demolished.
“All options must be investigated,” commented Mr Roberts. “Wrexham council needs to ensure that every issue regarding the Groves site has been considered rather than rushing into a decision to demolish.
“If the Groves is demolished then it’s gone forever and the community will feel robbed of a building which holds important memories for many in Wrexham.
“In particular we need to consider issues such as the extent of asbestos which could be a crucial factor in the viability for retaining the existing building. Also if the site is to be used for educational purposes then discussions will need to take place with the Welsh Government on the funding options of renovation or new build, and the likely timescale for any available funding.”
