  • Transition works when communities work in unison
  • The Government Group is looking at where there is/is not such unity
  • The community includes Unitary Council, Local Joint Committees, local environment groups, NGO’s, Charities, Area  Partnerships, unaffiliated local groups
  • Our groups aim to help the Council and the communities in Shrewsbury and Shropshire with fulfilling objectives  around the issues of energy descent and resilience.
