Coworking hub

Shrewsbury is set to become a hub for flexible and remote working with the launch of a town centre coworking campus as a group of businesses, along with Shrewsbury Business Improvement District, have formed the Shrewsbury Cowork Campus – which is believed to be the first of its kind in the UK.

David Parry, of Wellmeadow Consulting, based in Roushill, said the aim of the scheme was to encourage more people to work in the town centre with different venues offering a range of coworking environments.

He explains, “A growing number of businesses are moving away from the traditional practice of running large offices which house large numbers of staff, and instead are offering their staff much more flexible options.”

The venues forming the campus are Wellmeadow Consulting in Roushill, the Shrewsbury Office Club in Castle Street, Lipstick and Freelance in The Square, Courtyard Collective in Butcher Row, the Pump House in Smithfield Road and Bodytech in Mardol.

Each has different facilities, a different atmosphere and different pricing structures which will suit a wide range of requirements – from using a desk for a few hours to a long-term rent.

The project is being supported by Shrewsbury BID, whose executive director, Seb Slater described it as a very positive initiative.
