County needs more pitches for travellers.
A report to Wrexham councillors yesterday said the county needed 27 new pitches by 2021 because of a shortage.
There are currently 28 pitches in Wrexham, of which 22 are authorised, with a six-pitch unauthorised site at Rossett.
The new number of pitches was based on a population growth of 3.9%.
And more sites may be needed if the population growth rate increases.
The social affairs health and housing scrutiny committee was told: To make up the shortfall in current provision - mainly created by need from unauthorised developments and new family formation - 15 additional pitches are required on authorised residential sites over the next five years.
A further 12 pitches will be needed to meet the growth in population on sites from 2013-2021.
