Planning & Conservation

Church Stretton is in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It enjoys protection as a consequence. In addition much of the town is within a Conservation Area which requires stronger planning considerations.

Shropshire Council is responsible for all Planning Applications. They make use of the Town Council's policy documents that apply to Planning and Conservation issues. These policy documents can be downloaded from the list alongside here.  Shropshire Council's website provides a comprehensive listing with relevant dates, copies of all the plans, details of objections and consultations.

The Town Council reviews and comments on all Planning Applications within it's boundaries. The Town Council are always pleased to hear your concerns about Planning Applications although they will not forward them to Shropshire Council.
