Welcome to Shrewsbury Town Council
Putting Shrewsbury First
Shrewsbury Town Council came into being on 01 April 2009 as a result of Local Government reorganisation. The Town Council's area includes the whole of Shrewsbury town centre and adjoining residential areas. With a population of over 70,000 it is one of the largest town councils in England.
Our offices are within the Guildhall building, constructed in 2004, located at Frankwell Quay on the side of the River Severn.
The Town Council is responsible for horticultural services, The Quarry and Dingle, numerous small parks, sports pitches, recreation grounds, allotments, green spaces, the provision of the town's markets, community facilities, bus shelters, street lighting and public toilets.
The Town Council is proud of its reputation for making Shrewsbury a "town of flowers" and winner of the Britain in Bloom and Entente Florale European competitions. The dedicated workforce at the Town Council's nursery at Weeping Cross spend months preparing thousands of blooms and assemble, distribute and maintain more than 400 hanging baskets, 150 floral poles and numerous troughs and containers annually to make the town's streets and open spaces a floral masterpiece.
Overall, the aim of the Town Council is to 'put Shrewsbury first' making the town a better place to work, live and visit.
