There have been more twists and turns in the saga around whether the National Trust should sell off some land around Erddig for housing.

First BBC News Wales reported on Saturday that at the NT's AGM members vote for estate homes plan.

It took local councillor and NT member Marc Jones - to explain how the votes were broken down.

And then after digesting the data, today's Daily Post writes "National Trust plans are a 'breach of trust'", endorsed by the Evening Leader.

There have been some strong exchanges on our site about the development plans.

Contributor 'Sue from Wrexham' was the first to respond after Saturday's vote:

"Just wanted to say that, personally, I am pleased that the plans for new homes in Rhostyllen have got the green light from the National Trust - despite the negative protestors doing their best to get it scrapped. We are talking about a couple of fields here - that's all.

"There are more important things than somewhere handy for lazy people to walk their dogs (and not have to clean up the mess). A housing association is involved in this project - so there will be affordable homes. The National Trust will ensure that the new part of the village offers a pleasant environment for residents. I believe that Rhostyllen will be greatly enhanced by this development and I can't see why people are against it."
