Not a good Stop Press, I'm afraid, if you care about our lovely little Square - which is soon to become smaller. The word's just out. The Secretary of State has spoken. The stopping-up of the pavement under Princess House has been agreed. Brace yourselves for a wall of glass and a lot less Square between Princess House and the Old Market Hall. Oh, and say goodbye to cafe culture. A major modern building in the heart of our old town is about to become even more in your face.
When I find out more, I'll let you know. The Shropshire Star will be full of it, I'm sure, and BBC Radio Shropshire. But having just heard, I thought that those of you who've followed this story would want to know.
How this stopping-up was ever agreed in the first place by Shropshire Council is something else we might all want to know.
