Say No To Wrenbury Village Centre Marina

28th April 2014 .. Read what people say about this proposed scheme who are visitors to Wrenbury either by boat or caravan and spend money in the village.

 

 

Being part of a caravan group which uses this field on a regular basis, should this development go ahead, it would mean that we would no longer be able to camp in this area. There are a large number of groups which visit the area to camp here which would mean a considerable loss to the local economy. Given that people have already commented that there are other marina's quite near that are not full to capacity, the chances are that the loss to the local economy that the camping groups bring will not be replaced by the people using the marina.

 

It will increase boat traffic on this heavily over used canal, this will in turn force boaters away from this canal which will affect the businesses in Wrenbury and also those on LLangollen itself.I am a boater and if this goes ahead, I ¬†am afraid that I will not use this canal again 

Building a 200 boat marina on this already congested stretch of canal will cause extra delays for both boaters and local people. As boats cannot pass through the adjacent swing bridge quickly, queues of traffic build up causing congestion. With 200 more boats wanting to pass through the bridge the queues, of water and land traffic, are only going to get longer and more frequent.This development in inappropriate in this location

 

Looking at the huge size of the proposed planning application, one must wonder if the proposed marina is economically viable? Or will it simply become a bankrupted eyesore?

 

i visited canal week of the 18 of april last time was 10 years ago very much enjoyed trip to langolan ,found canal much busier than last time with long waits at perticular points if marina is past with 200 more boats the whole image of the tranquil langolan canal would be destroyed to the detrement of the whole areaThis marina is not going to increase business in Wrenbury as most boaters who moor in marinas bring all their food and other items with them, also there is a small marina in the village where you can get items you need for boating so anew marina would take this business from them.As for the Cotton Arms they will loose all the field which they use for caravan and motor homes and this will also loose the pub trade

 

I HAVE BEEN VISITING WRENBURY BY BOAT FOR 27 YEARS AND KNOW THAT THE LLANGOLLEN CANAL IS ALREADY THE MOST CONGESTED IN THE COUNTRY SO THE ADDITION OF MORE HIRE BOATS AND PRIVATE MOORERS WILL BRING BOTTLE NECKS AT LOCKS TO A STANDSTILL. THE EXISTING MARINAS ALL HAVE VACANT MOORINGS SO THERE IS NO CALL FOR MORE. IF A MARINA WAS PLACED AT WRENBURY THE HOLDUPS AT THE ROAD LIFT BRIDGE WOULD CAUSE ALREADY FRAYING TEMPERS TO ERUPT.
THE COTTON ARMS WOULD LOSE ITS CAMPNG FIELD AND LOSE SIGNIFICANT BUSINESS. AS A BOATER MYSELF I KNOWTHAT MOST BOATERS LEAVE THIER MARINAS AT WEEKENDS AND TAKE SUPPLIES WITH THEM FOR SUCH SHORT STAYS THEREFORE THERE WOULD BE NO INCREASE IN BUSINESS TO THE LOCAL SHOPS
