Related topics: Community

Following feedback from residents, Shropshire Council has today taken the decision to extend the consultation period on the draft masterplan for the proposed Shrewsbury West Sustainable Urban Extension.

The consultation, which begun on 4 July and was initially planned to run for four weeks, will now be extended by an additional five weeks, giving local people the chance to have input up until Friday 6 September.

The draft masterplan, exhibition boards and a form for making comments are available via the project’s dedicated website www.shrewsburywest.org/.

Mal Price, Shropshire Council Cabinet member for planning said:

“The Council welcomes the high level of interest in the consultation and I’m pleased to say that we have been able to extend the time period for comments as requested by local people. I would encourage any residents, businesses or other interested parties to consider the proposals and have their say before the deadline in September.”

The masterplan will be a key document guiding the development of the Shrewsbury West Sustainable Urban Extension. All the information can be found at www.shrewsburywest.org/ and exhibition boards will be available to view in the following locations:

  • Bicton Heath Co-operative store, Welshpool Road from Wednesday 24 July until Friday 2 August 2013.
  • 1st Floor foyer of the Shirehall, Abbey Foregate from Monday 5 August until Friday 6 September.
