In December 2012 a technical writer was engaged to translate all of this effort into the draft Plan. Draft policies, and the site proposals received from landowners and developers, were publicised in early January 2013 and two drop-in events were held on 12th January. At these events, and on this website, people were invited to comment on the policies and housing development scenarios which endeavoured to meet the communities aspirations. Over 160 people attended and their comments may be found below.
The policies were refined and the draft plan was endorsed by Much Wenlock Town Council on 31st January 2013.
A diagram showing the planned and anticipated steps towards the “making” of the Plan can be found below.
Finally, one of the formal stages of the Plan, the area designation application, was approved by Shropshire Council on 12th September 2012. The submission documents from Much Wenlock Town Council can be read below.
Following a six-week public consultation period which closed on 3rd April 2013 further changes were made to the Draft Plan which was submitted to the Town Council for approval on 25th April 2013. The Draft Plan was approved subject to further minor changes.
The Proposed Plan was formally submitted to Shropshire Council on 2nd May 2013.
