Exclamation Biggest fixture this month not tomorrow? Uni land to be sold to developer?

I have had a very interesting conversation today, if not quite concerning.

It appears lots is in place across the football club, welsh gov, council and various stakeholders to ensure the Kop land is secured with various plans in place for the future. It all sounds really positive and I would guess when worked in with the gateway plans for that area of town etc could be bright for the club and town. Wonderful!

However I am told it is dependant on the Kop land....

There has been interest previously in the land from a fast food retailer, and more recently a new mysterious 'developer'. I have been told Welsh Gov have fronted up on their promise to secure the land and made an offer to the Uni for the land, however it was declined as did not meet a valuation.

The mysterious developer has come up with a better offer and I am told it is going before the Uni board later this month, and could see it agreed to be sold.

I have no reason to doubt the above, and figures bandied about were bids of £850k - £1m.

Is anyone able to fact check the above, or give any further detail?

I would hope WCBC, Welsh Gov etc either come up with the cash to bridge the gap - or the Uni come to a swift fair arrangement to ensure the land is secured for the benefit of our community club and wider Wrexham community rather than a 'developer'.

Definitely something that needs clarifying ASAP. Time to turn the screw on the uni if they are considering selling it off to a third party as that plot is crucial. Also, if the latest promises from the council and government are anything other than hot air then they need to push this.

Newports tallest building has had a couple of mil recently - https://gov.wales/2-million-help-tra...el-development interesting bit on that "Welsh Government’s Targeted Regeneration Investment programme, which will provide £100 million of capital support across Wales over 3 years for regeneration projects" - wonder if we qualify?

Heavy pressure should be placed on the Uni to act in a community minded way regarding the land. Surely WCBC and Welsh government and any other party wanting to develop the land with the larger community in mind can apply pressure.

I am a student there and I know that they are trying to work with other uni's to get more money by franchising courses. No mention about the kop land. I guess if they did sell it, they could invest it in better facilities for students!
