The new financial year represents a particular challenge for the Town Council as negotiations about the future of key services and assets in the town reach their conclusion. The Town Council has created a new budget cost centre for the funding of ‘At Risk Services’ and this includes £25k revenue in 2017/18, and an additional pot of £41k for one off or capital investment in these services created from operating reserves.

March 2018

At last night’s Church Stretton Town Council meeting, councillors expressed grave concerns about the scale and speed with which Shropshire Council is now proposing to cease all funding of discretionary services, such as Libraries, Leisure Centres and Swimming Pools as from next April. This will hit small towns, such as Church Stretton and surrounding parishes, harder than larger towns, which have bigger populations to share the funding of such services. Potentially, this will be very socially divisive, leaving more rural areas with even less access to such services than they have now.
The Council will only have the month of July, in which to formally consult with the local community and surrounding parishes in order to establish the degree of willingness locally to fund these services, if no alternative options for these “At Risk” services have been identified.
Community Consultation alert Press release.
