Meanwhile elsewhere in Shropshire…
Vivienne Parry, Shropshire Councillor for Ludlow South, has urged Ludlow Town Council to carry out an urgent reappraisal of the way the toilets in the Caste St car park are maintained after complaints from residents, market traders and visitors.
Cllr Parry said: "The main problem is the smell. Busy toilets like these require cleaning at least four times a day at the height of the tourist season and the waste bins regularly emptied. At the moment they do not receive anything like this degree of attention and the smell at times has been appalling.
"Market traders and local shoppers have been particularly vociferous in their complaints but we also need to bear in mind the impact it has on our visitors. A lot of people work hard to sell Ludlow's image across the country but issues like this do not help.
"The problem requires a little extra expenditure to boost the clears hours, at least over the summer months. The Town Council* either needs to find the extra from its budget or install the pay turnstiles it bought some years ago. Even if we only charged for the summer months it should cover the extra cleaning costs.
"I asked the Town Council's Services Committee at their meeting last week if they would consider these options. I urge them to come to a quick decision.
"Most towns now maintain their toilets to a high standard. Ludlow has a great public image but we need to act quickly on this issue for the benefit of everyone who uses our beautiful town centre."Published and promoted by Shropshire Liberal Democrats, 72 Cannon Street, Shrewsbury, SY2 5HH
