Mayor of Oswestry, Councillor Duncan Kerr, and Councillor Mike Isherwood, chairman of the council’s development and planning committee, have put up special, green post boxes in the town centre for people to post their survey forms, which are currently being distributed.

In a statement, they said: “It’s not been an easy year for anyone.

"Whether you are worried about Covid, crime, young people, jobs or the environment, we want to hear from you.

"To make it easy to submit your opinions we have designed a simple survey form which can be completed in less than a minute and then placed in one of our special green letterboxes in the town centre."

Over the next few weeks they will be distributing 4,000 surveys door to door across the town. Copies will also be available in some cafes.

"We pledge we will read all your comments and use them to direct our future campaigns which aim to make Oswestry a better town for everyone," the statement added.

The green letter boxes have been placed outside Hermon Chapel, in Chapel Street, and the Shlurp Milkshake bar, opposite the Park Gates, in Church Street.

Residents can also get a survey form and return it electronically by emailing Councillor Kerr on kerr.duncan@hotmail.co.uk
