Another micropub planned but neighbours are objecting to the proposal from Appleteme

This application has now been approved. Appleteme, Tish Dockerty’s apple centred business, has applied for planning permission to convert its current workshop on Lloyds Yard to flexible use as a restaurant, micropub and apple pressing. If the application is approved, it will add to the growing family of micropubs in Ludlow. But there concerns from neighbours and Ludlow Town Council about parking, noise, smoking, extraction fumes from cooking and emergency exits. I have asked for this application to be considered by the Southern Planning Committee.

Final plans submitted for supermarket and petrol station off the A49 at Rocks Green, Ludlow

At last we have the detailed application for the controversial application for a supermarket at Rocks Green. It has been nearly six years since the controversial scheme was first proposed. The proposal from Blackfriars Property Group is for be 21,000 sq ft of retail space dedicated to food, along with a petrol filling station with three pumps. The retailer is not named in the application. But no one is expecting it to be a discount retailer such as Lidl.   Ludlow has been spilt on this application. Many think it will damage independent traders in the town centre irreparably. Others welcome a wider retail mix. This is the first of a sequence of new articles on this scheme.

Will Ludlow get a fourth micropub? If so, cheers!

This application has been withdrawn. A planning application has been submitted for a new micropub at 17 Tower Street, on the corner of Old Street (20/00128/FUL). If approved, and I can see no reason why it shouldn’t be, it will be Ludlow’s fourth micropub alongside The Dog Hangs Well on Corve Street, The Blood Bay on High Street and The Wicked Grin on Fish Street. That will help Ludlow build its reputation as a destination for good and unusual places to eat and drink compared to the often bland fare in bigger towns and cities.

Ludlow Brewery is planning a veranda and balcony at the front of the building

It’s not the best view in the world. It overlooks the brewery car park, Aldi’s car park and the station car park. But there is little doubt that a balcony and a veranda with a servery at the front of the Ludlow Brewery, a former railway shed, will add to the capacity and functionality of one of Ludlow’s prime venues. The planning application (19/05500/FUL) needs to be looked at in detail. We need more information on how often and at what hours the balcony will be used. We need to consider the noise impact on nearby residences.
