Shropshire councillor investigated after complaints

A Shropshire councillor is being investigated over claims of planning irregularities.


Councillor Joyce Barrow, who represents the St Oswald's ward in Oswestry on Shropshire Council, will go before a standards committee on Monday following complaints.

It is believed two complaints have been made against Councillor Barrow.

Shropshire Council said it was unable to comment.

Claire Porter, Shropshire Council's corporate head of legal and democratic services, said: "The standards sub committee will be meeting on November 14 and will be considering a code of conduct complaint, however the council cannot comment at this time due to the risk that the process may be compromised."

Councillor Barrow said she was unable to comment.
