WMCA – Let residents decide

Sign the petition below>>>

The Conservative Mayor of the West Midlands has held talks with Shropshire Council’s Conservative Leader to consider expanding the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) to include Shropshire.

The WMCA currently includes Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry and four other urban council areas. An expanded WMCA would give the West Midlands Mayor power over Shropshire.

Helen believes the move would have no long-term benefit for rural Shropshire, because we’d be a small voice in a large urban authority, run by a mayor many miles away.

Shropshire’s residents should be given a vote to approve or reject any proposals before being pushed into joining the West Midlands Combined Authority. Sign our petition below if you agree with Helen.
