Welcome to the West Wrexham Urban II Programme 2000 - 2008
The West Wrexham Urban II Programme was a European funded community regeneration initiative which focused on the development of an entrepreneurial and participating community.
A total of £16million (including £6.8million from the European Regional Development Fund) was spent between 2000 and 2006 on projects in West Wrexham. 29 project applications were approved for a variety projects ranging from summer play schemes and business grants to multi-million pound resource centres.
These projects all aimed to, and still support new and existing business and help people overcome barriers to accessing employment and taking part in their community.
The West Wrexham area consists of 9 wards:
- Brymbo (including Tanyfron)
- Gwersyllt North
- Gwersyllt East and South
- Bryn Cefn
