Related topics: Community / Democracy / My area

Ludlow is set witness a lively debate in on Thursday 26 February 2015 when the Ludlow and Clee Local Joint Committee (LJC) will be hosting a discussion on the future of the Ludlow Museum Resource Centre.

The councillors and officers planning the changes will be at the meeting to explain current plans and the options for the future.

There will also be an opportunity to discuss how planning works in Shropshire with Ian Kilby, the Shropshire Council’s planning services manager.  He’ll be explaining what the future holds for towns like Ludlow.

Councillor Richard Huffer, chairman of Ludlow and Clee LJC, said:

“The LJC provides a great opportunity for the public to learn about what is going on in the area, and to ask questions of councillors and officers.

“The hottest topics in town at the moment are plans for a new supermarket and hundreds of new homes.  We will have the opportunity to find out about how the planning system copes with such large applications.

“People are also very concerned about the future of the Ludlow Museum Resource Centre. I am very pleased that Councillor Tina Woodward is coming to Ludlow to explain what the current and future plans are for this facility.

“The local police team will be in attendance to answer questions.  They will be there a half hour before the meeting if people want to discuss any issues confidentially.

“We’ll also get an update on changes to youth services.”

The meeting is on Thursday 26 February 2015 at 7pm in the Elim Church Hall, just off Smithfield Car Park.

Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting and to take part in the discussions.
