New parking charges come into force in Ludlow next Monday, 19 November 2018. Shropshire Council says this will be better for Ludlow. In the town centre, it will cost £1.80 an hour to park from 8am until 6pm, seven days. Pop and shop will be reduced from 15 minutes to five minutes. Castle Street car park charges will rise to £1 an hour and stay will be unlimited, working out at £8 a day. Around the town centre, on-street charges rise as does the maximum stay. Costs in Smithfield and Upper Galdeford car parks will go both up and down. New residents’ permit charges will come in from Monday. The cost will be £100. There will be only one permit for each household.
