West Felton Parish Council


A consultation is currently running concerning an outline planning application for the erection of up to five dwellings and associated infrastructure to be built in the grounds of the Punch Bowl pub. Details of the application and a form for the public to submit comments can be found at https://pa.shropshire.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?a... Please note that decisions on planning applications are made by Shropshire Council. The Parish Council is only invited to submit comments and has no involvement in the decision as to whether to grant or refuse permission. The Parish Council will be submitting a comment to Shropshire Council shortly and wants to hear the views of residents before discussing and agreeing its submission. Please come along to a special Parish Council meeting to take place at 7:30pm in the school hall on Tuesday 16 July (the agenda can be found on the Meetings page) to let the Parish Council know what you think about this application.


The next election will take place in May 2025 when anyone eligible can stand for election. Any vacancies arising before then, due for example to current Members resigning, will be advertised on the parish council website and noticeboard. Members of the public are always very welcome to attend the parish council's monthly meetings, either to simply listen or to speak in the public session part of the meeting about any items on the agenda. 


Thank you to everybody who came along to the exhibition. On the day we had over 70 forms returned. Thank you.

If you missed the fascinating exhibition on the historic development of your village, recently discovered after extensive research, you can see it here:
Conservation Area
The Parish Council considered the research findings and the consultation results at the council's November meeting and was of the view that there was overwhelming evidence and support for a Conservation Area designation. Members voted unanimously to submit an application for designation to Shropshire Council and this was then submitted following the meeting. The application is currently being reviewed by Shropshire Council. An initial response has been received from Shropshire Council and a reply sent from our Consultant. Details are on the Conservation Area page
