Community Plan Re-fresh

The Parish Council is currently consulting on the work carried out following the publication of the Wem Rural Community Plan in 2013. The Council has distributed a questionnaire to every household to assist the review and refresh of the Community Plan.   A Community Plan is an important document as it reflects the views of the residents of the Parish with regard to its future direction. Please consider what you would like OUR Parish to look like in 5 years time and what changes are needed to get it there. All ideas, visions and criticism will be taken on board in producing the plan; all these things will help decide what needs to be protected and what needs to be improved.

You can complete the questionnaire on-line. Please use this link

Please take a few minutes to review a few key objectives already identified for the future and their associated actions and let us know if you agree or disagree with them. Please do add your own comments and be as forward looking as you can.

The information provided will be treated in utmost confidence, will be independently analysed and the anonymous results used to produce an Action Plan for the Parish for the next 5 years.

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.
