Portas Pilot Bid – Application


April 2, 2012 by oswestrychamberoftrade

“Dear all, please find attached the Oswestry Portas Town Pilot application form, along with various letters of support that were received, for information. I thank all for their contributions and support so far. Next steps (as far as the application are concerned) is that the Govt have said that they will announce the winners in the spring so we shall keep our eyes and ears open. We shall let you know as soon as we have any news.

Of course, the Portas Report is about more than the ‘Pilot Towns’ and regardless of whether Oswestry is successful in its application to becomeĀ  a ‘Pilot Town’ or not, many of the recommendations in the report (which have largely been accepted by Govt) will need action locally. The Chamber had a meeting with the Town Council and Shropshire Council to discuss Portas on 23 March, and have a follow up meeting with OTC on 4 April. This topic will be discussed further at the Chamber meeting on 4 April and news will be posted on the Chamber website. Please feel free to email any comments or suggestion to the Chamber website.

Yours, Oswestry Chamber of Commerce”.
