Invitation to shape future for Flax Mill

A major consultation event on the future redevelopment of Shrewsbury's Flax Mill will be held tomorrow, with residents being urged to help shape the plans.

Marion Blockley, who has been appointed to play a major part in the planning and design of the Flax Mill site, will be looking at parts of the development which will be open to the public.

She will be consulting with people at the meeting about what they would like to see going on at the Flax Mill in three year's time and how the site should be developed.

The meeting of the Castlefields and Ditherington Community Partnership will be held tomorrow from 7pm at the Martin Wilson School, on New Park Road.

Residents will also be able to examine plans for a new shopping precinct in Ditherington which will be on display for any comments.

And the future shape of the NHS in Shrewsbury will also be examined as Karen Morton, a senior executive of the Clinical Commissioning Group, replacing the Primary Care Trust next year, gives a talk to the meeting.

She will talk about the transfer of hospital services between Shrewsbury and Telford and the implications of other NHS changes.

Shropshire councillor Alan Mosley, for Castlefields and Ditherington, said: "I am delighted the two main speakers are able to attend what promises to be a really valuable meeting.

"Karen Morton will be at the centre of developments in the NHS here and will explain the changes and answer any queries.

"Marion Blockley will lead a consultation event on the future of the Flax Mill Maltings. The project is of great importance for the local area and Shrewsbury and very many people are very interested and really enthusiastic about it."

He added: "This is a great opportunity for people to see and hear more about progress at the site and plan its future."

There will also be reports from the local police team.
