Wrexham's city status bid (Platinum Jubilee honours), and costs

The request was successful.

Dear Wrexham County Borough Council,

(1) Please can you provide me with a copy of Wrexham's city status application, submitted to the Cabinet Office at 3.01 p.m. on 8 December 2021 as part of the Platinum Jubilee civic honours competition.

I did make an identical request on 13 December 2021; that was refused (12 January 2022) on the grounds that "the Council's ability to bid competitively for city status could be undermined", but I wondered if you might be prepared to release the information now that the competition is finished, with Wrexham having emerged as one of the successful applicants.

(2) Please can you clarify what costs were incurred in the course of Wrexham bidding for city status in this competition.

Yours faithfully,

Alex McKinstry
