  3. Shopping centre 'to be flattened in a year'

    BBC Shropshire

    One of three shopping centres bought by a council for £51m could be demolished in 12 months' time.

    Shropshire Council leader Peter Nutting says the authority is aiming to flatten the Riverside centre in Shrewsbury.

    He says the plan after that is to "use [the site] as temporary parking for when the multi-storey goes".

    The authority bought Shrewsbury's Darwin, Pride Hill and Riverside centres in January 2018 but admitted in June their value had slipped to £11m less than the £51m it paid.

    However, Mr Nutting said the council was making about £2.3m from the centres this year and it was about to start £4m of renovations to the Darwin site.

  6. Market town revamp thanks to slice of £95m heritage cash

    Key historic buildings in Oswestry are going to be restored over the next four years as the area gets a slice of a £95m regeneration fund.

    The Shropshire market town was confirmed as a Heritage Action Zone in a move the government said would "breathe new life" into high streets.


    Shropshire Council says, as well as repairs, it'll work with Historic England, which is part of the scheme, to convert empty buildings back into use over the next four years.
