Project WIP was designed and built by Shropshire Council ICT Development Services. It is maintained by a group of people who work on Shropshire.gov.uk in varying roles, from support staff to developers to managers. Over time we will invite people from other parts of the council to contribute.
Our aim is to keep things informal and personal, and to give our contributors freedom to express their opinions and views. It should be noted that these views do not represent the views of the council as a whole.
