Wrexham is changing as more and more of the area is being developed with the old Eagles Meadow car park currently being transformed into a new shopping area, including Debenhams. More recently, the former Wrexham Lager Brewery was demolished to make way for a new retail and leisure park.

But do you think progress comes with a price and is it worth it? Contributor Anon writes: "How many landmark buildings does it take for the council to demolish to realise you've become a 'lookalike'? It's become a chain-store replica town. I used to marvel 20 years ago at some of the architecture."

Do you agree or do you like what Wrexham is becoming?
