New Welsh-medium school for Gwersyllt gets approval

Tonight's planning committee approved a new Welsh-medium school for Gwersyllt, the first in the borough for more than a decade.

It will meet the needs of the 150+ children from the area who currently have to travel to Plas Coch and Bodhyfryd schools and future generations.

It wasn't an easy ride by any means, but the opposition's points were thoroughly aired and comprehensively answered, not least by Arfon Jones who has worked tirelessly to ensure this has become a reality. The idea of a new school arose from a 2007 survey of parents, back in the summer of 2008 there was a consensus that the school was needed in Gwersyllt but it's taken until now to get the approval.

PS I wasn't going to post tonight as planning committee was a bit of a marathon but some Anonymoron wrote elsewhere on this blog about Plaid "promoting their ideology" by backing the school. What sort of planet do these people inhabit?
