This is no surprise. I predicted a few weeks back that Shropshire Council’s planners would recommend approval of the controversial plans to build a superstore and petrol station at Rocks Green on the outskirts of Ludlow. And so it proves. This is the most controversial application to hit Ludlow in many years. It will change the character of our town. Many people say that will be for the better. We’ll have another place to shop and a better range of goods. Others fear the superstore will severely damage our town centre and our independent traders.
