Any link that will take you away from the Shropshire Council site will be clearly marked, along with any links that will open in a new window.

Printing webpages

When you print a page from this website it will print the content without the surrounding graphics. This is to ensure that you can print out information quickly and with the minimum of printer ink. Printer settings alter depending on the browser used to access this site and the printer used.

Using the search

All pages will display a search box - just enter the word or phrase you want to search for and click on the "Search" button, or hit return or enter on your keyboard.


If you'd like any page on this website translated into another language, we'd suggest that you use an online translation service, such as Google Translate. Simply choose the language you wish to translate the English text into, copy the text from our website, paste it into the box in and choose 'Translate'. The translation will then appear. Poltran is another online translation service, specifically for Polish/English translations, and works in the same way.
