Councillors in Oswestry have voiced concerns at the lack of road improvements planned for the town.

Members received a written briefing from Shropshire Council's highways lead Steve Brown at Wednesday's Development and Planning Committee.

But they said the only capital works programme was on Weston Road.

Councillor Sandy Best said: "This is interesting to note – it's not until you get to point 464 when you have one item for Weston Road.

"I feel like we have been left out."

Members were told that the programme was only for emergency repairs and not areas of concern voiced by the council.

Cllr Best continued: "I am amazed that it is just Weston Road on there when we have some serious issues. And it is not just what can be seen, there are issues of subsidence and sometimes you think that those are going to be serious."

Cllr Best noted instance of subsidence along Church Street, while Cllr Paul Milner noted the subsidence by the new Lidl development.

He explained that a lot of the time it is down to utility companies who carry out work.

Cllr Milner told the council: "They put the new level lower than the original. The one by Lidl is a prime example. They don't put them back as they were in the first place and this is where all Shropshire Council's money is going."

Cllr Milner, who represents Oswestry South on the unitary body, requested members email him with any issues they were aware of so he could go back to the highways department to get them added to the list.

Meanwhile, Cllr Chris Schofield asked if the town council could use its own CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) money to fill in potholes rather than wait for Shropshire Council.
