The Preferred Sites consultation document outlines a housing policy direction to improve the delivery of local housing needs, and establishes development guidelines and development boundaries for Shrewsbury, the principal and key centres - including Church Stretton. It sets out the preferred sites to deliver the scale and distribution of housing and employment growth during the period 2016 to 2036 in these communities.

The Chance to Hear about the Proposals

Shropshire Councillors for Church Stretton, Lee Chapman and David Evans, said:

“By holding this public meeting we are giving residents in the Church Stretton area the chance to hear more about the development proposals, and to give us their thoughts on what is being proposed. We know that residents will want to protect the character of Church Stretton and its surroundings, but that they will also see the need to allow new housing to help maintain the services and activities delivered in the town in the future. We’d urge members of the public to come along and have their say.”
