The first meeting to explore the goals and to select some priorities to action will be held on Thursday
17th January at the Methodist Church in Broad Street at 7.00 pm. 

Following the questionnaire in the summer which invited every household to share their views about Ludlow now and about Ludlow in the future, six key themes from the analysis of the survey have emerged.  The areas that are a priority for Ludlow people are:

·         young and older people

·         tourism and economic development

·         health and wellbeing

·         environment and green space

·         crime and safety

·         transport, parking and road safety

We are setting up community led groups to start work on addressing and developing many of the needs and improvements that Ludlow people identified as a priority for the town. Some of the priorities include giving greater support and positive opportunities for young people, addressing the needs of vulnerable groups, including the elderly, improving the local environment, increasing tourism in the town and supporting the market and independent shops.

We are looking for local people who want to make a difference to support the and develop Ludlow for the future, a town that’s vibrant, economically active and supportive of all its community.   

Each of the small informal working groups will be led by a member of the community with the relevant skills and experience, working alongside a Ludlow Town councillor. You do not need to have any direct experience or skill set, just an enthusiasm to make a difference.

The first meeting to explore the goals and to select some priorities to action will be held on Tuesday 17th January at the Methodist Church in Broad Street at 7.00 pm. 

Everyone is welcome to come along and be involved in shaping the next steps for Ludlow’s future. For an informal chat about how you can get involved please contact Erica Garner on 07974001310 or email ludlowcommunityplan@gmail.com

Ludlow Town Council Budget 2019/ 20

Please click here for more information 


Ludlow Town Council would like to thank residents for taking part in our budget consultation in recent years. 


Last year, we were pleased to hear that residents supported safeguarding Ludlow’s play areas, and we have made provision in the budget, and are in the process of negotiating the transfer with Shropshire Council. 


In the last few years, Ludlow Town Council has focused on strengthening its the finances to enable the process of change.   Recent changes have included opening Ludlow Museum at the Buttercross in 2016, refurbishment works to the Guildhall in 2017 /18, progressing the works to the Town Walls, and supporting local bus services.  Future changes include taking on twelve play areas from Shropshire Council, and supporting a sustainable future for Visitor Information Services.  However, Ludlow Town Council understands that continual increases to Council Tax is unsustainable. 

Ludlow Town Council is committed to no Council Tax increase in 2019/20. 





The Mayor's Charity for 2018-19 is Ludlow Young Health which supports young people in Ludlow.


The next event will be:


Mayor's Charity Thai Curry Evening

Tuesday 5th March 2019



Forthcoming Events


Mayor's Charity Dance Evening

Saturday 9th March 2019 - Ludlow Assembly Rooms - 8.30pm
