Bridgnorth Town Council recently met and agreed its response to Shropshire Council’s strategic planning proposals (where they think housing and employment sites might be located in the future).
The response was prepared, in part, following a number of workshops held by Bridgnorth Town Council in December / January. The workshops were attended by representatives of local schools, housing associations, businesses, Bridgnorth residents, residents of neighbouring parishes and councillors from neighbouring parishes, along with others. Please see our full response here:
The closing date for consultation is 8th February and individuals are encouraged to respond directly. You do not need to answer the entire questionnaire just those points that you might have a view on.
There was a presentation by Shropshire Council at the Castle Hall Community Centre in mid –January attended by over 200 people. Those present raised a number of issues however, please do not think that the questions posed at the end of the presentation was the consultation. If you expressed a view at that meeting please be sure to register it formally - details of how to do that can be found here https://shropshire.gov.uk/get-involved/local-plan-review-preferred-sites-consultation/

The Town Council office opening hours will be changing from Monday 28th January 2019.
The new opening times for the office will be Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays and seasonal closedowns) between 10am and 2pm for enquiries from the public.
For many years, the Town Council has closed its offices to the public from 1pm – 2pm for lunch but these changes will ensure we will be accessible to the public during these times, as it is often the most convenient time for the public to visit.
The decision was made at the Town Council meeting on 18th December 2018; minute number 0447/1819 refers.
