For the community
Weston will deliver an appropriate level of social infrastructure and day to day amenities necessary for the community to thrive.
Residents of surrounding villages might be enrolled in its schools, its training courses or with its GPs. It will be an inviting place to charge the car, stop for a coffee or pick up some local produce for dinner. Whatever the reason for visiting, you will find it easy to get to – by rail, bus, bicycle or on foot.
“Shropshire Council recognises that this proposal may represent a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to meet cross-boundary needs, through delivery of nationally significant employment opportunities, high quality housing and a local centre to provide services, facilities and infrastructure as part of a planned new settlement within an important strategic corridor.”
— SHROPSHIRE COUNCIL, LOCAL PLAN REVIEW, 2019
