Future Oswestry Group
The Future Oswestry Group is made up of representatives from Shropshire Council, Oswestry Town Council and Oswestry Business Improvement District (BID) and forms a key partnership for the town, facilitating discussion on economic priorities and often facilitating joint budgets or levering external funding such as the High Street Heritage Action Zone Funding via Historic England.
The group was set up to review the priorities in Oswestry’s 2020 Neighbourhood Plan and to help deliver activities and projects that will benefit the town, its residents and its businesses.
The Future Oswestry group has already helped to support and develop the High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ); hosted workshops to refresh the vision for Oswestry as part of the ongoing master planning process; and contributed to the development of the draft walking and cycling proposals for Oswestry. Oswestry Town Council is a key partner in this group and is currently working on further bids to support key economic objectives.
