Shropshire Councillors in the Bishop's Castle Area have expressed their anger at being snubbed by the Chief Executive of Shropshire Community Health Trust over the ongoing closure of Bishop's Castle Hospital.
Cllr Ruth Houghton (Bishops Council Division) said: "We wrote an open letter to Mrs Patricia Davies, the Chief Executive of the Trust on 29th October last. A reminder email was sent on 30th November. A response has not been received to either the letter or the email.
All householders in the Shropshire Council area can now request an additional wheelie bin for recycling cans, glass and plastic. The bin - which is optional and free for householders- can be requested online at https://shropshire.gov.uk/requestmixedrecyclingbin The first bins are set to be delivered from May this year, starting in the south Shropshire area, and then being rolled out across the county. The bin will replace the existing black recycling boxes, and help to increase the amount of waste recycled by providing households with a larger container. It will also reduce the amount of waste lost to the recycling process after being blown out of the boxes on windy days. Some households may not want a bin due to housing layout or the lack of storage space for the bin. In these circumstances, households may continue to use their existing waste containers, as will those households who simply prefer to use boxes.

Nigel Hartin, Lib dem Shropshire Councillor for Clun Division, is raising the issue of Shropshire Council raising Council tax charges of up to 300% on houses that are currently being renovated with the Council Cabinet..
Nigel said: "This policy, which is meant to discourage empty properties, unfortunately, penalises many who are trying to build homes for themselves by renovating properties in disrepair. Talking to my colleagues across Shropshire it is clear that this is quite a widespread problem."
