Reviewing the Place Plans

Previous reviews

To date, the Place Plans have been updated through conversations with Town and Parish Councils, Local Elected Members, infrastructure and service providers, and local businesses. The ambition was to hold such conversations on an annual basis, but this approach has been difficult for the Council to resource and has not enabled the Place Plans to be quickly and easily updated in response to changing local circumstances.

Future reviews

Undertaking an annual conversation involves significant consultation and engagement across the county. In light of current resource constraints, Shropshire Council will therefore now update the Place Plans on a rolling basis. This means that the Place Plans are ‘live’ documents, which can be updated as required in order to reflect changing infrastructure needs within a community. Town and Parish Councils will be able to submit projects for inclusion in their Place Plan on an ongoing basis.

A summary of the process that we will follow to review and incorporate these updates is shown below. 

Update required

Process

The local community wishes to remove, update, or add a Priority A or Priority B Project 

The Town or Parish Council submits the relevant information to their Place Plan Officer (see contact details at Annexe 1). This can be done via letter, email, or conversation and discussion.

Shropshire Council’s Internal Infrastructure Group (a group of officers with responsibility for delivery of infrastructure) will consider the information and agree any amendments that need to be made to the Place Plan.

The proposed amendment will then be shared with the Strategic Infrastructure Forum (external infrastructure providers, such as utility companies, Environment Agency, etc.) for their input.

The Place Plan Officer will feedback the results of the discussions to the Town or Parish Council, and the final form of the amendment will be agreed.

The Place Plan Officer will make the changes to the Place Plan, and upload the revised document to Shropshire Council’s website.

The local community wishes to remove, update, or add a Neighbourhood Project 

The Town or Parish Council submits the relevant information to their Place Plan Officer.

The Place Plan Officer will consult with internal and external partners to ensure that there are no reasons why the project should not be included.

The Place Plan Officer will make the required changes to the Place Plan, and upload the revised document to Shropshire Council’s website.

Shropshire Council or an external infrastructure provider wishes to remove, update, or add a Priority A or Priority B Project 

The relevant Place Plan Officer will contact all Town and Parish Councils in the Place Plan area to discuss any proposed amendments to A and B projects.

Once any amendments have been discussed and agreed, the Place Plan Officer will make the changes to the Place Plan, and upload the revised document to Shropshire Council’s website.
