    Shropshire Council voted in September 2019 to implement 20 mph limits outside our schools. Something which many Councils already do. The new Highways Portfolio Holder, Steve Charmley has just announced this will be taken forward at long last.

    Heather said "I welcome this as I have been campaigning on this for many years. We now need a timeline for the rollout, when each school will be assessed and a target date for delivery. It could save time and money just to ask the local member and the Parish Council if there is an issue and then set implementation in progress. All our children deserve to be able to travel to school in safety which they cannot at present in Worthen, Chirbury and Stiperstones as the roads are so busy. It's time for the new Cabinet members on their new allowance rates to start delivering the services we need across the County.".

    Shropshire Council Cabinet members must now take the wrap for poor services in Shropshire. We can no longer allow our portfolio holders to take money for nothing. Four years and £46,000 later our highways services are no better and in some ways much worse. Under that watch, we also saw £1,000 spent a day on a consultant. Shropshire resident's money is paid to all those in the Cabinet to do a job for us. The buck stops with them.
