Shrewsbury Big Town Plan: Masterplan vision

  • Period: 19 January 2021 - 28 February 2021
  • Status: Closed
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Business and economy, Community and living
  • Type: Public

A six week consultation will take place from 19 January to the end of February to invite comments on the draft Shrewsbury Big Town Plan Masterplan Vision.

This Masterplan Vision is an ambitious and bold realisation of the shared vision and framework plan set out in the Shrewsbury Big Town Plan (2018). It is the outcome of a collective process that has brought together individuals, organisations, decision makers, business leaders, councillors and council officers, educational establishments and local experts to create a shared vision and strategy. It provides a strong statement for the residents, employers and visitors to Shrewsbury and how they can expect the town to develop over time. The Master Plan vision sets out key areas of focus for the next two decades. It has been developed as a series of studies for six varied but linked character areas of Shrewsbury to create an overall Masterplan Vision with a complimentary Movement Vision. The character areas are:

  • The Station Quarter
  • The Northern Corridor
  • The West End
  • Abbey Foregate
  • The Historic Quarter
  • Frankwell and Riverside

Each study responds to the specific character of the area in order to strengthen existing identity, supported by specialist heritage and landscape input. Movement is revolutionised to reduce vehicular dominance to generate space to attract vital investment and make life better for the people and visitors of Shrewsbury.
