Parish Plans are intended to help local communities have a greater say in local affairs and provide an action plan for the Parish Council to adopt. ( pdf. document can be accessed below)
In Shropshire, 18 Place Plans have been produced which identify the infrastructure and investment needs within each community. They are aimed at ensuring that Shropshire Council and our partners understand the local priorities within each community and that resources can therefore be targeted appropriately.
The Place Plans are based around the main market towns/key centres of which Wistanstow Parish is linked to the Market Town of Craven Arms.
The Place Plans are important to ensuring the delivery of sustainable places in Shropshire. They recognise that sustainability is based on many different factors and that what is needed to make and a sustainable community in one place may differ in another. Each plan therefore details the priorities, needs and aspirations specific to a relevant location. (pdf. document can be accessed below)
