Re – proposed new supermarket and petrol station at Rocks Green, Ludlow

Our client, Blackfriars Developments Ltd, is working on a planning proposal that would see a new supermarket and petrol station developed on land commonly called Dun Cow at Rocks Green, Ludlow off the A49. The store would create in the region of 250 new local jobs, increase choice and competition for local people and strengthen Ludlow’s role as a retail destination. We believe that there are significant benefits to the local economy as a result of this proposal.

Before a planning application is submitted to Shropshire Council we want to discuss the proposal with local stakeholders and the community. To that end. we are holding a pre-submission planning consultation to set out the plans and answer your questions.

The consultation takes place:

Where?: Rockspring Community Centre (Main Hall), Sandford Road, Ludlow, SY8 1SX.

When?: Friday 4th July from 10.00am – 6.00pm

Saturday 5th July from 10.00am – 3.00pm

Members of the development team will be on hand to discuss the proposal with you.

It is a very informal event so please feel free to visit whenever you can.

We look forward to meeting you. In the meantime, if you have any questions please

Contact me on 01993 869294 or shoare@communityconnect.co.uk

Yours sincerely,


Managing Director
