Seven out of eight development targets around Oswestry Hill Fort are no longer up for exploitation. Or so it seems.

.

Apparently unless the planning policy changes, it is unlikely the area surrounding the hillfort will be developed for the foreseeable future.

Note though, an eighth target is still live and anyone who has watched the years of shameful behaviour by many in Shropshire Council who’ve been gagging to damage Shropshire’s greatest Iron Age heritage asset, will be less than confident that the new policy WON’T change. The price of heritage, particularly in Shropshire, is going to have to be constant vigilance.

In the words of Mythical Britain:
Some good news. But, as always, where there’s money to be made, strange things happen in corridors unseen and with opaque public consultation processes designed to ease the process. Councils should safeguard sites like this in perpetuity, no ifs or buts.”
