Shropshire-Libraries

Consultation on update to Shropshire Libraries strategy

A public consultation about refreshing the library strategy has been launched so the new version can reflect local priorities and needs.

A series of consultation events will also be held at libraries across the county during Libraries Week, from 7–11 October 2019.

  • Oswestry Library – Monday 7 October, 10 am to 3/4 pm
  • Bridgnorth Library – Tuesday 8 October, 10 am to 3 pm
  • Ludlow Library – Wednesday 9 October, 10 am to 3 pm
  • Shrewsbury Library – Thursday 10 October, 10 am to 3 pm
  • Whitchurch Library – Friday 11 October,10 am to 1 pm
  • Market Drayton Library – Friday 11 October, 1 pm to 4 pm

The current library strategy includes a three-tier system which informs how resources would be financed and managed over a five-year period.

Two years on it has been identified that a refreshed strategy, that offers a robust vision with clear priorities for the library service of the future, is needed.

Shropshire Council would like to seek your views so that the new library strategy can reflect local priorities and needs. You can read more about the proposals by clicking this link https://www.shropshire.gov.uk/get-involved/library-strategy-engagement-and-consultation/ or to have your say click this link completing our survey.

Mile End Roundabout Improvements Consultation

Start Date:
1st October 2019

End Date:
1st November 2019

Start Time:
00.01

End Time:
23.59

This consultation aims to inform people about proposed improvements to Mile End roundabout in Oswestry, and to gather people’s views before a planning application for the work is submitted.

Under the plans, a new second roundabout would be constructed on land owned by Shropshire Council – the Oswestry Innovation Park site – and then be connected to the existing strategic road network on the A5 and A483, therefore minimising the disruption to the network during the construction phase.

Subject to planning permission, work to construct the new ‘dumbbell’ roundabout could begin in July 2020 and be completed by March 2022.

The planning application is due to be submitted in December 2019, before a final design is published in June 2020.

The preferred design option for Mile End has been agreed in principle through ongoing discussions with Highways England and is based on detailed traffic modelling work to assess future traffic requirements.

Mile End Roundabout Improvements – Consultation Boards.pdf

You can also attend a consultation event being held at Mile End Golf Club on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 September from 11 am to 8 pm each day

The proposals and a questionnaire will also be available to view at Oswestry Library from 2 October to 1 November.

An additional meeting is also being arranged with parish and town councils, to give them the opportunity to comment and ask questions.
