New Kop stand and conference venue in master plan

A new conference venue and 5,000-seat Kop end stand at Wrexham's Racecourse football ground are at the centre of a new master plan unveiled for the town. A four-star hotel is also planned and Wrexham General railway station's role as a transport hub would be boosted. Wrexham council leader Mark Pritchard said the aim was to regenerate Mold Road, a major route into the town.

The Welsh Government, football club and Glyndwr University all back the plan although funding has yet to be agreed. Councillor Pritchard said: "There is a new want and desire to improve Wrexham as a place and as a region.

The conference venue would be built below the new stand, instead of the previously suggested museum of football which is now earmarked for Wrexham Museum in the town centre.

The Urbanists were the lead consultant and masterplanner for this project.
