ONE of Ludlow’s favourite delis has applied for Listed Building Consent for an awning to cover the seated area.

Harp Lane Deli at 4 Church Street has also applied for five tables with chairs and a gazebo.

The proposal is in part a response to Covid-19 restrictions. The restriction to two customers in the store at a time has affected the business.

It is hoped to have an outside awning.

The awning at harp Deli will be a dark chocolate colour.

A temporary gazebo – permission is only requested for 12 months – does not need Listed Building Consent.

Planning applications are first considered by Ludlow Town Council.

The Town Council can make a recommendation but the final decision will be made by Shropshire Council planners.

It will also be considered by Highways chiefs.
