Plans for a new £300m power station in Wrexham are to go on show at a series of public exhibitions.

Western Power says the facility at Wrexham Industrial Estate could create 30 permanent posts and 800 construction jobs.

Original proposals for overhead pylons and power cables were dropped following complaints from a residents' group.

The company says it would provide energy to firms on the industrial estate.

If planning permission is granted, construction work could start in 2016 with the power station operational by 2019. The plans can be viewed from 15:00 to 20:00 BST at:

  • Isycoed Village Hall, Isycoed on 21 July
  • Marchwiel Village Hall, Marchwiel on 22 July
  • Atrium Suite, Redwither Business Park on 23 July
