Petrol station and convenience “tuck shop” plans still a danger to Ludlow children

Plans for a petrol station and convenience store on the corner of Bromfield Road and Coronation Avenue will be considered by Shropshire Council’s South Planning Committee next Tuesday (10 March). I will be telling the committee that I think the plans are too dangerous to approve without revisions. I have a number of concerns. My main concern is for the safety of pupils going to and from Ludlow School. I still have doubts about the location of the petrol tanks which will be partly below ground. I worry that leakage can only be detected after it has happened by which time it have seeped into watercourses. In this post, I only consider pedestrian safety. More than 200 school pupils pass by this site every school day morning and evening on their way to Ludlow School.
