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.
