Community Vision Plan for Ellesmere

Many thanks to those of you who completed the Town Council’s questionnaire late last year. We had a brilliant response! We’ve listened to what you said and have already carried out some actions, including:

  • we set up a volunteer group to litter pick and keep the town tidy
    • we prepared the ground to pilot new youth groups
    • we started a carbon reduction challenge

We plan to help develop the tourist offer, including supporting developments at the Boatyard, tracks and trails; improve public transport; help older people to go digital, and support the development of the Business Park.

Shropshire Council – Public Transport Survey

This Autumn we’re bidding to Government’s Bus Back Better fund to transform services across Shropshire.

We’ve got some great initial ideas and our bid will be much stronger with your views on board.
We’ve created this online survey which should take about 5 minutes to complete, and if you represent a group there’s an option to record the group’s views too.

Volunteers sought to share views about Shropshire’s highways service


Shropshire residents are being asked to help with work to improve Shropshire’s roads, by volunteering to take part in some research.

Shropshire Council and its contractors are working hard to improve the county’s highways and make them safer for all road users. As part of this work volunteers are being sought to suggest and talk about changes they would like to see made to the council’s highways service, and the ways the county’s roads and pavements are maintained.

Steve Charmley, Cabinet member for highways, said:

“We’re working to improve Shropshire’s roads and we want to make sure that those improvements are ones that will make a positive difference to all road users. To do this, we’re looking for some volunteers willing to take part in some research and talk to us about the changes you would like to see.

“Most people use our roads, and most people have an opinion about them. We want people to share their experiences, and share their thoughts about how we could further improve our roads, and our highways maintenance service.

“If you would like to volunteer, please let us know. All comments made and views shared will be considered and we look forward to hearing what people have to say.”

Anyone interested in taking part, or finding out more, is asked to register their name and contact details here.
