You can access Shropshire Council services at this customer service point during the following days/times using our free to use public PC or our Freephone telephone:
- Monday to Friday: 9am - 6pm
You will not be able to access council services outside of the hours stated above.

We provide a variety of services, some of which you may prefer to access online. If you don’t have a computer at home, you can use the public access computer in our customer service point.
