Casual Vacancy Notice - Cabin Lane Ward

Oswestry was selected by Government to be a pathfinder for neighbourhood planning as part its Localism legislation.

Working with the local community ,through groups and individuals ,we are one of the first town councils in England to complete a neighbourhood plan.

Support was engaged through professional planning and consultation consultants and the process and resulting action plan was produced over a 12 month period.

The plan gives a strong community mandate to the town council and Shropshire Council.

Our thanks are offered to all those who took part in the process, the Steering Group and Councillor Martin Bennett for his chairmanship and leadership over the last 12 months.
