Much Wenlock Community Led Housing Project

Much Wenlock Community Led Housing Project

What we are trying to achieve

To deliver the ambitions of the community in Much Wenlock as expressed in the Much Wenlock Neighbourhood Plan and to ensure any decisions that are made are visibly relevant to the Neighbourhood Plan, in particular:

                        i)          The need to deliver more affordable homes

                        ii)         How the community are engaged in awareness of the work of this group

What we have done

Shropshire Housing Group presented our approach to Much Wenlock Town Council and a Project Board was set up in December 2014.

The board is made up of members from the local community, Shropshire Council representatives and Shropshire Housing Group representatives, the Board currently meets every 6 weeks to progress an affordable housing scheme in Much Wenlock.
