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?

4 thought on “Vote now – should new petrol station and store in Ludlow be open 24 hours?”
  1. This site and surrounding area is designated as mainly industrial and is a much needed redevelopment of a brown field site. Surely 24 hr opening would provide more jobs for Ludlow which are always needed? If 24 hr opening is proved to be unnecessary then the owner will then cut the opening hours of their own accord, thus arriving at the right outcome.

  2. I’m in favour of 24 hour opening – the only restriction (through licencing) should be on alcohol sales (perhaps 10am to 11pm).

  3. If a 24 hour filling station is needed surely the proposed filling station on the by-pass at Rocks Green would be a better option.

  4. I don’t think the filling station or shop should stay open for 24 hours, I think the Co-operative store in Sheet Road is better suited for that.
