Day: 4 November 2020

Roadworks and one way system on New Road extended until 20 November – Sandpits 24 December

In my previous article, I explained that the roadworks have encountered difficulties drilling through the Tilestone in the Raglan Mudstone formation. The work is being undertaken by Amey on behalf of Seven Trent Water. Contractors will be on site and New Road will remain one way until 20 November after which two way traffic will be reinstated until 4 January. Work on Sandpits Road will continue until 24 December and resume on 4 January. There is now no completion date for either set of works.

Dinham Hotel to close and be converted into apartments if plans approved

These plans have been long expected. One of our upmarket hotels is to be converted into residential accommodation. The plans are to create seven dwellings, five in the hotel building and two in the grounds. There be only minor alterations to exterior of the building. Number 9 Dinham, currently Elliots Bistro will be converted back into an independent house. This is a well thought out conversion. It will though be sad to lose this venue from Ludlow’s town centre.
