    Shropshire Council has cut £48 million from its budget over the last three years under pressure of government cuts. It will need to cut, or in its words "save", £18.5m next year. The council has now set out details of the proposed cuts and is asking for public comments.

The levy would remove buildings and machinery from calculations and tax only the land value of commercial sites, boosting investment and cutting taxes for businesses in nine out of ten English local authorities.

    Cllr Viv Parry, chairman of the group, said: " It is estimated that there are around 73,500 people in the West Midlands who have dementia. In Ludlow we have a higher proportion of elderly residents than most of Shropshire and we need to take action now to support residents affected by this condition. Some 30 businesses and interested parties have beeninvited to this meeting to discuss how we can work together to make Ludlow dementia friendly.

    "Over the last six months we have produced a leaflet written by Mike Beazley administrator which explains how we work with other groups to help carers and dementia sufferers but there is much more to be done.

    In addition we have invited George Rook Chair Shropshire Telford &Wrekin Action Alliance and Kat Horner Dementia Friendly Communities Officer for the -West Midlands to join us at our 11th September meeting to talk about other towns who are working the same way to become Dementia Friendly.
