    Bus Services

    Remember to take part in the consultation that Shropshire Council is running on cutting back more of our bus services.

One of the biggest complaints voiced by residents at the moment is the secretive, inconsistent manner in which Shropshire Council deals with planning applications. People, Parish Council and Councillors alike are incensed that there is no effective way to have an input into the planning process
