Corporate Plan 2014-2017

The document contains our vision, aims and objectives and series of priorities and actions for the current period of this Council. The Plan was widely consulted upon and is constantly under review.

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.
