It was agreed that Shropshire Rural Community Charity be awarded the consultancy work for the first stage, and all the parish representatives voted unanimously to agree.
Shropshire Council have begun the consultation
into the proposed area of the ‘three parishes’ Neighbourhood Plan. This
will run until 23rd October.
