Pontesbury Parish Council Strategic Plan 2021-24
17th December 2020

In 2021 the parish council is launching the Pontesbury Parish Strategic Plan.  The purpose of this plan is dual purpose.  We hope the plan will provide the residents of the Parish with a clearer understanding of the Council’s activities and legal responsibilities.  The second purpose is to involve you as a community in setting the priorities and objectives for the next four years for council work and monies spent.   The Strategic Plan will be a “living  document” which will be reviewed with the community each year.  The aim is to launch our draft plan, for your feedback, at the Annual Parish Meeting 2021, which will be held later in the year (when Government guidelines allow).   At the Parish Meeting we also want to celebrate all of the wonderful community spirit shown throughout 2020, bring together all of the great local groups and societies who do so much in the community and launch the Pontesbury Parish community awards. Please download the draft Strategic Plan by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.

Plans for the year ahead include:

  • Continued  conversion  of  all  our  streetlights  from Sox to Led to save energy used, in line with our carbon zero ambitions
  • Continuing work on maintaining and updating our very popular play area
  • Improvements to the pedestrian safety at the junctions on Hall Bank.  This work will also include measures to help alleviate flooding
  • Taking forward the ambition for a bus  park at Mary Webb School 
  • Continuing work on the Pontesbury Parish Neighbourhood Plan
  • Drawing up an action plan for reaching carbon zero by 2030 through work with the Pontesbury Climate Emergency Action Group

and of course we will be having our local elections in May
