Shrewsbury Big Town Plan-Public Consultation opens

Shrewsbury Big Town Plan pop up  Public Exhibition opened on Thursday 16th August at St. Mary’s Church, St. Mary’s Place, Shrewsbury SY1 1EF.  The exhibition is open from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday to Saturday and will remain open until Wednesday 19th September 2018.

Whether you live in Shrewsbury, live on the outskirts or visit Shrewsbury for any reason, it is important you know what the plans are and to take part in the survey. 

The first three days of the exhibition gave visitors to the exhibition opportunity to speak to representatives from the three partners leading the project: Shrewsbury Town Council, Shropshire Council, and Shrewsbury Business Improvement District (BID).  From Monday 20th August, the public can continue to view the plan and use the feedback forms provided to give comments.  This mirrors the questionnaire which is live online for feedback at www.shrewsburybigtownplan.org

The final draft of the plan already reflects the comprehensive responses received during the first consultation, and now sets out a vision for the town and how it could look by 2036.

It explores themes such as vitality of the town centre, movement and place, creating a space for enterprise and nurturing a natural Shrewsbury.  It lists key objectives to show how the town can evolve to meet future challenges.
