Thank you for visiting our website. The Raby Estate has for some time been exploring the potential for the delivery of a new mixed-use village extension at land at Shore Lane, Cressage. The proposals are being brought forward against the background of Shropshire Council’s emerging Local Plan.

The Local Plan process has identified that Cressage is a community hub and is therefore required to deliver approximately 80 new homes to help meet the County’s needs. Our proposals are being brought forward as the solution to this identified need and would be an alternative to the other site being promoted on the opposite side of the village.

Our ambitions for land at Shore Lane, Cressage, are to provide a sustainable development which creates not just new homes but significant benefits for the local community. Our proposals will support the existing fabric of the village by adding new homes, including for young people wishing to stay local, as well as deliver unique flexible working opportunities and green space. We want to deliver a settlement for people to live, work, exercise and enjoy.


Public Consultation – Get Involved and Have Your Say

Following a period of public engagement in 2020, where we invited feedback on our plans, we are now progressing the proposals and have submitted a request for a pre-application meeting with officers at Shropshire Council.

We will be launching a pre-application public consultation on Tuesday 2 November to provide the public an opportunity to input into our proposals and raise any queries they may have.

As part of this consultation we will be holding two public exhibitions which residents will be invited to attend. These will be held:

  • 3pm – 7pm, Tuesday 9 November – Cressage Village Hall
  • 3pm – 7pm, Wednesday 10 November – Harley Village Hall

We would encourage you to attend these events and speak to the development team about the plans.

Alternatively, you can have your say on the plans by filling in our feedback form which is available below:

Any comments should be received by 17 November, 2021.
