People in Wrecsam have voted decisively against the council bidding for city status. The online poll results were 66% Against, 34% For. The majority of community councils consulted were also against, as was the Senedd Yr Ifanc youth council.
That's a pretty categoric response, especially as the council site was full of propaganda supporting city status. It may give the pro-city status Leader newspaper food for thought too, as its online poll was also against.
Plaid's street poll also confirmed the trend.
Despite this, council officers are still recommending that councillors support the bid.
