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.
Your Council is responsible for a wide range of services which effect the daily lives of people who live and work in Oswestry. If you are not sure what your council does, then why not take a look to find out.
With 18 Councillors covering the Seven Wards of Oswestry it's easy to not know who your councillor is or which ward you live in, our interactive map will help you to find out.
