Welcome to Shropshire Council
Shropshire Council replaced the district and borough councils and the county council from 1 April 2009.
The creation of Shropshire Council made it easier for people to understand who is providing services across the county, as well as aiming to improve efficiency and value for money.
Shropshire County Council, Bridgnorth District Council, South Shropshire District Council, Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council, Oswestry Borough Council and North Shropshire District Council merged to form Shropshire Council.
Shropshire Council is responsible for all the services that the county, district and borough councils used to deliver. That includes planning, licensing, bin collections, schools, libraries and roads.
The headquarter offices of the former councils are all being used by the new council, and receptions will be open to the public as normal. There are also dozens of customer service points, ‘Telly Talk’ sites which provide a video link to a customer adviser, and Broadplaces which provide free access to the council’s website, across the county.Last updated 28 June 2012 Print this page
