Vote now – should new petrol station and store in Ludlow be open 24 hours?

The Delve family (who own Harry Tuffins) have applied for a petrol filling station on the corner of Bromfield Road and Coronation Avenue. They also plan to build a decent sized convenience store. If planning permission is given, should these be open 24 hours a day seven days a week? The South Planning Committee has decided to defer its decision on whether the scheme should be approved. It has asked the question: should this petrol station and store be open 24 hours a day? Do we need a 24 hour facility in Ludlow? Let me know your views on this by voting and commenting below.

Decision on new petrol station and store in Ludlow delayed over concerns for safety of schoolchildren

After a forty minute discussion, plans for a convenience store and a 24-hour petrol station on Bromfield Road, Ludlow were put on hold yesterday afternoon by Shropshire Council’s South Planning Committee. The committee want more work to be done on pedestrian safety, especially for schoolchildren on their way to and from Ludlow School. The committee is also concerned about the site being open 24-hours a day and whether there is sufficient car parking. I think the committee made the right decision to defer.
