Related topics: Democracy

Shropshire Council’s Cabinet met today (Tuesday 25 July 2017) to discuss and consider a report relating to the council’s role in the future of the Darwin, Pride Hill and Riverside shopping centres in Shrewsbury.

At the meeting Cabinet agreed that further work should be carried out before it considers the issue again later this year.

Steve Charmley, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for corporate support, said:

“Cabinet has today discussed Shropshire Council’s role in the future of the three main shopping centres in Shrewsbury. Further work will be undertaken before this issue is brought back to Cabinet before Christmas for a final decision. Until this work has been completed it would be premature to comment on the matter further.”

As the Cabinet report contains commercially sensitive information the meeting was not open to the public.
