Consultations


Restricted Parking Zone Consultation

This consultation has now closed.


 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Ludlow Town Council has received complaints from local residents, organisations and businesses about the current hazardous and inconsiderate parking on Castle Square and Market Square.

Residents are being blocked in; Ambulance and Fire Engine access is being blocked; visitors cannot use the benches; festivals; cultural events and street trading are being disrupted; and visitors are getting a poor impression of our beautiful town! 

Changes are required, but can only take place after consideration of the needs of all town centre users; and the fact that existing car park provision is free of charge from 6pm daily.

Ludlow Town Council and Shropshire Council have drafted a proposal for consultation.
