NEWS, Nov 2023
FoE Shrewsbury are part of Better Shrewsbury Transport (BeST) which is launching a legal challenge against the disastrous North West Relief Road.
More information is here, http://www.bettershrewsburytransport.org
We’ve already called for a Public Inquiry and if this is rejected we have strong grounds to launch a Judicial Review.
This is an expensive process costing around £30,000, but it’s also our BeST chance to stop a road that could wreck Shrewsbury’s drinking water supply; destroy ancient trees like the 550 year old Darwin Oak; and take 130 years to be net zero. The UK government is using £200m of your taxes to fund this four mile stretch of road! We think the money would be better spent on sustainable transport, not to mention the NHS, our schools, or helping the vulnerable through the cost of living crisis.
WE CAN’T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU! Please DONATE, Click here.
We are working with a number of community groups to oppose the road, but now we urgently need additional funds for a potential Judicial Review.
Donations will only be used to fund this legal challenge and other essential campaign expenditure.
Any surplus will be donated to "The Good Law Project" who use the law to achieve change, including challengeson climate issues.
The ShrewsburyGreenGuide has been discontinued as the information within was becoming outdated too fast and also the information was available elsewhere via a search on the Internet.
However, we have now added a recycling section to our web site. Click on the menu above.
