NEWS: New business start-ups in face of Brexit fears

“A Shropshire accountant says latest figures revealing a record number of new businesses starting up in the region mean most people are ignoring fears surrounding Brexit and getting on with planning for the future.

Shropshire saw 2,634 new businesses registered in the last year, a 6.5% rise on 2017 with 933 firms formed in Telford & Wrekin and the rest in the wider county area.

Neighbouring Staffordshire saw 6,474 new startups, a rise of 1.7% on 2017 while the West Midlands registered 32,571 new businesses, a 5.1% increase over the same period. The figures mirrored an encouraging trend of similar increases in other areas of the country with a record number of new business startups in the UK last year of 669,855 compared to 634,116 in 2017.”

NEWS: Oswestry Preferred Option for Future High Street Fund

“Shrewsbury Town Council has finalised its attempt to win part of Shropshire Council’s bid for a share of the £675 million Future High Street’s Fund.

Last month, Councillor Peter Nutting, mayor of Shrewsbury and leader of Shropshire Council said that Oswestry was the preferred option.

However, members of Shrewsbury Town Council have other ideas.

Last month, Councillor Nutting said Shrewsbury is no longer in the running because it has received large investments in recent years.

“No decisions have been made yet but my point of view is that we should put Oswestry forward,” he said.”

NEWS: Council awarded more than £300,000 to boost economy and provide homes

“Two important projects were given a boost yesterday (Thursday 14 February 2019) after receiving £305,000 from the Government as part of its One Public Estate (OPE) programme.

Last year both new and existing OPE partnerships were invited to apply for a national fund of around £15 million, to enable the public sector to work together to support the building of much-needed new homes.

The projects – to provide homes and support economic growth in Oswestry and to co-locate blue light services and other public-sector partners across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin – will now be progressed by the Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Estates Partnership, which is led by Shropshire Council.

£205,000 of the funding will be used to support the OPE programme, as well as progress existing plans and identify opportunities and solutions to accelerate housing and employment land development in Oswestry. The project aims to provide 1,187 homes, 4,144 jobs and 42 Apprenticeships over the next 10 years.”
