Shropshire Council has confirmed that the open space land in Glentworth Close, Morda, will not be sold, after consultation with the public, the local town council, and the local parish council.
Local Conservative Councillor for the area Joyce Barrow said:
“I’m very pleased at the outcome. I was contacted by many residents, and it became very apparent that this was a valued piece of open space to them; many saying how it was an area that children play on regularly.
“The strength of feeling was such that the council will now ensure that the land will be secure for the future use of residents. We listened to the comments, and have acted in the best interests of the residents.”
