About the Council:
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.
The Town Council is responsible for horticultural services, The Quarry, 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 also proud of its reputation for making Shrewsbury a "town of flowers" and winner of the Britain in Bloom and Entente Florale European competitions.
Shrewsbury is a vibrant town with a long distinguished history. First recorded in a Charter of 901, Shrewsbury developed as a market town aided by the natural defensive qualities of a large meander in the River Severn.
The town has a population of just over 70,000 and is surrounded by the ancient Shropshire hills of the Stiperstones, the Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge and the Wrekin.
Recently Shrewsbury has undergone considerable development in commercial and cultural areas. It is the regional shopping centre, served by numerous specialist shops as well as two main shopping centres and out of town retail parks. The town experiences a lively nightlife based around the numerous pubs, bars and restaurants. Other highlights of Shrewsbury include The Quarry (the town's municipal park designed by Percy Thrower), the Abbey made famous in the Brother Cadfael detective novels of Ellis Peters and the annual international Shrewsbury Flower Show. In addition, a new purpose built theatre situated on the riverbank next to the council's offices opened in March 2009.
