Shropshire Council

Shropshire Council is the top tier local authority for Shropshire. Shropshire Council is run by the Conservatives and has been since Shropshire Council was formed as a unitary authority in 2009. The Liberal Democrats are the largest opposition group on Shropshire Council. There are 74 councillors elected onto the council who represent 63 electoral divisions.

Since the Conservatives took charge of the new Unitary Authority for Shropshire they have been plagued by scandal, waste and incompetence. They have made huge cuts to local services, developed a huge black-hole in their finances and have no credible plan to find a sustainable solution to their financial problems. The Conservatives have come up with several failed initiatives to generate revenue IP&E and spending £52m to buy shopping centres to name but two. During this time they have had a Leader resign in the face of a scandal.
