During last week’s village hall meeting in the Darwin Centre Frankwell I asked the audience whether they thought that Shropshire Council service standards has been maintained or improved over the last 4 years.

Shrewsbury MP welcomes investment in infrastructure to boost jobs and give people security

Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury & Atcham has welcomed the announcement from the Prime Minister and the Chancellor that there will be £36 billion invested in more than 200 infrastructure projects this year.

Highways Agency agrees to make changes at Edgebold roundabout.

The Highways Agency has confirmed to Shrewsbury MP Daniel Kawczynksi they are revising the design at the Edgebold roundabout where the A488 meets the A5 over the coming nights.

The Agency has only recently completed a road widening scheme at the roundabout, which involved changing the road markings. However this led to a large amount of congestion as the road markings designated the left hand lane as left turn only this caused tailbacks in the right hand lane.

Last Saturday was a day of contrasting emotions; happiness, sadness, reflection and real pride in our townspeople and community.  I had the great pleasure of taking part in the “Big Busk” in support of the Shrewsbury Ark Charity working for homeless and vulnerable people.  Also I had the nerve-shredding pleasure of watching Shrewsbury Town secure three vital points in our relegation battle.

Many people in Shrewsbury will not have heard of The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) yet this is a body which is of real importance for the future of our county and our town.

The Marches LEP is the business-led, private and public sector partnership which has been tasked with regenerating the economic vitality of the Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin region. Set up in 2011, in its first year the Marches LEP, secured £1.5 million investment for a redundant buildings programme and has since secured a further £25 million of Government funding.
