Shifnal Matters and Much Wenlock Neighbourhood Plan Refresh Group (NPRG) met with Councillor Peter Nutting at Shirehall yesterday.

Members of the group in Much Wenlock gave their 84-page submission, which laid out reasons residents believe plans for at least 120 houses on Bridgnorth Road would cause “fundamental damage to the unique character of the town”.

Meanwhile, Shifnal Matters submitted responses stating its opposition to Shropshire Council’s proposals for development in the town.

The recommendations are being made in Shropshire Council’s local plan update, which sets out where homes and business land can be built up until 2038. It sets a target of building 30,800 homes in Shropshire over the lifespan of the plan.
