Following emergency legislation and regulations by the Secretary of State, the Parish Council will be holding meetings remotely by the Zoom platform.

In accordance with the regulations, any appointments which would usually be made at the Annual Meeting in May 2020 will continue until the next Annual Meeting or until the Council decides otherwise, whichever is the earlier. It is currently anticipated that the next Annual Council Meeting will take place in May 2021.

Traffic Monitoring – Pepper Street, Quina Brook

Residents have expressed their concerns with the speed of traffic travelling along Pepper Street, Quina Brook for some time.  The Parish Council agreed to commission traffic monitoring to allow Shropshire Council, as Highways Authority, to assess the situation.  The monitoring was carried out during November 2017.  A summary of the results can be viewed through this link.  Unfortunately, the results did not prove sufficient for either Shropshire Council or the Police to take any further action.
