Liveable neighbourhood walkabout and drop-in sessions for Copthorne and Porthill residents
Residents in the Copthorne and Porthill areas of Shrewsbury are being invited to go on a walkabout this week to find out more about plans to make the areas ‘liveable neighbourhoods’ for a trial period of up to 18 months.
A liveable neighbourhood aims to make neighbourhood streets safer and more appealing for residents, cyclists and pedestrians by removing rat-running traffic.
Three walkabouts are taking place this week – each led by Shropshire Council officers and local councillors Rob Wilson and Julian Dean.
- Tuesday 12 October: 8am to 9.30am
- Tuesday 12 October: 4pm to 6pm
- Saturday 16 October: 10.30am to 12noon
Each starts from Porthill Bridge.
Three community drop-in sessions are also being held this week, to tell people more about the proposals and give them the chance to ask questions.
- Wednesday 13 October- The Beacon – 2pm to 4pm
- Wednesday 13 October – The Bricklayers Arms – 4pm to 6pm
- Saturday 16 October – unit next door to Woodfield Stores – 12noon to 2pm

The walkabouts and drop-in sessions are part of a public engagement exercise that runs from Monday 4 October until 1 November 2021.
