A mountain bike was found abandoned on Lythwood Road, just before the Glebe Road turning earlier this week.  The make of the bike is 'Zealous' anyone recognising or missing the bike should please contact the Parish Office on 874651.



The above Appeal Hearing will take place on Tuesday 29 September 2015 in the Ludlow Room at Shirehall commencing at 1000 am.

The Parish Council has submitted further comments on the Appeal Statement of Case in support of the original refusal by Shropshire County Council and a representative will attend the hearing.

Update:  The Planning Inspector made a decision at the Appeal Hearing on Tuesday (29 Sep 15) to instigate a more formal Public Inquiry following a late challenge from the Appellent to the 5 year housing land suppy.  She stated that the information provided needed thorough consideration and that could not be achieved during an Appeal Hearing, she was also surprised by the level of local public interest.

As soon as we have been notified of the Inquiry date it will be publicised.

The village of Bayston Hill is an urban area in a rural setting of 5500 residents set in Shrewsbury's countryside fringe some five kms south-west of the centre of Shrewsbury. The village has a thriving village community with an active Parish Council, a busy village hall, Women's Institute, annual pantomime, etc., and a strong local identity. It also has well supported village facilities.

Whilst there has been a welcome increase in village-based employment in recent years, the majority of residents work in nearby Shrewsbury and Telford. Road links are good, with Bayston Hill located near to both the A5 and A49.

The open countryside surrounding the village is a major attraction for many of the residents. This, and the strong desire to maintain a separate identity to Shrewsbury, has led to a widely held belief that the village has grown enough and that there should be no more housing beyond its boundaries, although this is currently under threat.
