Oswestry Masterplan

The masterplan is an investable conceptual vision for Oswestry. This project is designed to drive aspirations and thinking about the future of the town.  

This is still in the very early stages. It will draw on comprehensive research, previous studies as well as discussions, engagement and consultations with key partners, stakeholders and the public. 

The masterplan will highlight areas of potential development, movement and access strategic thinking and public realm opportunities. Ongoing discussions will help further shape potential proposals and actions that could and should be worked up in the short, medium and long term. 

The masterplan will support the Future Oswestry Group with the evidence base to enable better informed investment decisions, prioritisation and targeting of resources.
