Thanks everyone for turning our last night. More than two hundred people crammed into the market square for a protest organised by the Chamber of Commerce. There were a huge variety of banners but they gave a consistent message. It’s time for Shirehall to listen to us about parking charges.
At 12.30am today, Shropshire Council’s cabinet will meet to finalise the new parking charge regime. Councillor Peter Nutting will be in the chair. I hope he will hear the message from Ludlow and clear. DON’T KILL OUR TOWN CENTRE WITH PARKING CHARGES.
We have been calling for four changes. No charging on streets after 6pm. Lower charges on central streets. Retention of 15-minute pop and shop. And keeping Castle Street car park short stay.
