In addition to the economic, employment and housing benefits J3 will provide a range of benefits and new facilities:
Health Centre – A new GP/Health Centre could be created which would help ease the pressure on existing services and be available to the whole area.
Community Facilities – Play areas, open spaces, sports pitches, a community centre – all options that as part of a consultation exercise could be included -] working with people we can identify what the area needs and would benefit from.
Local High Streets – Just imagine how local shops would benefit from better footfall, sustaining local businesses in Shifnal and Albrighton, connected by better public transport. Our economic benefit is wider than just J3.
Schools – New primary schools and investment in secondary schools could help existing and new communities. Working with existing schools and County Education we can develop a strategy for local education that meets everyone’s aspirations.
Public Transport – A bus service linking communities, supporting perhaps existing community bus services with funding to secure their long term future. Park and ride for commuters, better train links and investment in Cosford Station – easing the pressure on Albrighton and Shifnal.
