Cheaper Energy Together helps householders get a better energy deal through the power of acting collectively. Cheaper Energy Together combines bulk buying with shopping around to give people a great deal. By grouping thousands of households together, it's possible to negotiate much lower energy deals than if an individual was changing supplier on their own.

SHROPSHIRE COUNCIL'S SAMDEV CONSULTATION
The Parish Council wish to make to make the following responses to the consultation:
Dorington - The Parish Council proposes amendment to pages 30 and 32 to reflect their ammended village design statement and village development boundary. These have arisen as a result of the public consultation event held on 9th June 2012.
Condover - The Parish Council (PC) support Shropshire Council's SAMDev Draft (Feb 2012) as is and (are pleased to see that phasing of development is well covered on pages 28, 31 & 32).
Ryton - The Parish Council support the Shropshire Council's SAMDev Draft (Feb 2012) as is which identifies Ryton as countryside.
Stapleton - The Parish Council support Shropshire Council's SAMDev Draft (Feb 2012) as is.
SAMDev Minerals Allocation - Preferred Site Salop Sand & Gravel.
Whilst the Parish Council (PC) is not against expansion of the quarry, it does not support the scale of the quarry development included in Shropshire Council's SAMDev Draft (Feb 2012).
The PC objects to the quarry development North of the blue line (AA) being included (see plan Appendix A):-
1) The extraction is too close to the Village of Condover.
2) The extraction is too close to the Cound Brook.
3) The inclusion of this section as a "preferred option" may lead to planners "tending in favour" if a full planning application is received along these lines.
The PC object to the quarry development South of the blue line (BB) being included (see plan Appendix A):-
1) The extraction is too close to the Village of Ryton.
2) The inclusion of this section as a "preferred option" may lead to planners "tending in favour" if a full planning application is received along these lines.
The PC will not support the proposed new quarry access to the A49 without first seeing a full and comprehensive traffic study carried out, therefore does not support its inclusion as a "preferred option" as planners may "tend in favour" if a full planning application is received along these lines. Note that the PC are specifically concerned that this new quarry access to the A49 may lead to Grange Lane, Condover becoming a "rat run" for traffic into/through the village.
Once the quarrying is finished, the PC expect the subsequent landscaping to include new public footpaths and a new bridal way providing local residents with full public rights of way across the quarry site (note the PC are not looking for any form of closed nature reserve or "permissive" access). After all of the years of traffic related to mineral extraction that the village's have/will have gone through the PC consider it entirely reasonable that the residents get this full access.
As with new housing development, the PC trust that the PC will receive a levy in relation to new mineral extraction. Please advise what will be the value of this levy per tonne.
Appendix A can be found and downloaded here.

ISSUES WITH ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IN THE PARISH
As Clerk I have witnessed that the Parish Council is frequently approached about matters over which they have no jurisdiction or powers. Shropshire's Safer Stronger Communities Partnership believes that all residents and tenants have the right to live peacefully within their home and communities and is committed to tackling anti-social behaviour.
Anti-social behaviour can take many forms, including playing loud music in the early hours of the morning, graffiti and vandalism, offensive and threatening behaviour, harassment and intimidation, fly-tipping and fly-posting.
The Partnership is reminding residents that there is now a single reporting number for people to report incidents of anti-social behaviour. If you have experienced or witnessed anti-social behaviour, you shouldn't suffer in silence, please tell them about it by calling: 0345 678 9020
HOW TO REPORT A POTHOLE, FAULTY STREETLIGHT OR TRAFFIC LIGHT, DAMAGED BRIDGE, OR DAMAGED ROAD SIGN
With over 5,000 kilometres of roads, cycleways, footpaths and verges in Shropshire, it is not possible for the council to inspect all of the network all of the time. You can help us by reporting any maintenance problems you see. It is important to provide accurate details of the problem, including; what the problem is, where it is located, when you noticed the problem and your name and contact details. You can report a problem by following this link to the Shropshire Council Website
CONDOVER BROADBAND SPEED - ARE YOU SATISFIED?
BY CLLR DAVID LANE
Living or working in Condover I guess that you are just like me and can't get a decent Broadband speed. Apparently the solution for this is a new fibre optic cable connecting the village and the exchange at either Dorrington or Bayston Hill.
