improving the borough

Its an excellent idea for the leader of the Council to meet the community and listen. However, it will be a pointless exercise if there is no impact from the 'consultation'. For example Wellington town centre is in a terrible state (empty shops/lack of footfall partly caused by the Borough Council 'supporting' Southwater/Telford Town Centre/out of town shopping centres) and it urgently needs a major boost! People have been campaigning for a serious investment in our historic market towns and sadly there has been very little investment whilst £45 million has been put into Southwater.
