We are in lockdown again as cases soar across the county. But Shropshire Council last week decided to remove social distancing measures in Shrewsbury and the market towns including Ludlow. That means closures on King Street are no longer in place on Fridays and Saturdays. I don’t agree with this. Even with reduced footfall we need the full width of social distancing to maintain social distance and to promote it as an attractive street. However, Ludlow Town Council was in favour of opening King Street fully again and lifting restrictions. It is not known whether Shropshire Council or Ludlow Town Council wishes to reimpose the restrictions when lockdown ends.
