Covering an area of 50,500 hectares, with a population of 125,750 the County Borough has much to offer whether you are a tourist, potential resident or a business seeking to expand or relocate.
The local environment is Wrexham County Borough's greatest resource and is an essential component in residents' quality of life and in the successful development of local industrial and tourism initiatives.
Effective planning policies and sensitive development control ensure that the development and protection of the environment are carefully balanced.
The aim is to ensure that necessary changes will respect and complement the character of the environment.
The Wrexham area has a rich landscape with diverse areas of countryside covering the Ruabon Mountains and the Berwyn Range to the Dee and Ceiriog valleys and the agricultural lowlands. This varied landscape supports a wide range of wildlife and habitats. Some habitats are nationally rare such as lowland peatland bog and upland moorland. Others though widespread, such as woodlands, ponds, hedgerows and river corridors, form the essential ecological framework of the County Borough.
Archaelogical remains are an important part of the County Borough's heritage and provide a record of the history and culture of the local area. They are important both for the information they provide about the past and for their role in education, leisure and tourism.
Agenda 21 is derived from an action programme for the 21st century agreed by World Leaders at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. The aim of the programme is to improve the quality of life for ourselves and for future generations, by focusing on Social, Economic and Environmental issues.
Wrexham's Agenda 21 programme is fully supported by a wide variety of organisations and individuals and various projects are in place and continue to be established. Businesses, voluntary groups, schools and colleges and local people are looking at recycling, green transport, local plants and wildlife, Fair Trade, healthier eating, real nappies and renewable energy.
By working hard we will help to make the County Borough an even greener place to live.
