DOMINO’S could be bringing a pizza restaurant to Ludlow.

Plans have been submitted for advertising signs to be placed at a small retail unit on Ludlow Business Park, east of Spencer Manufacturing Ltd, near Howdens and the A49 bypass.

These include three fascia signs, one projecting sign and one internally positioned LCD digital display. Images submitted to Shropshire County Council show that the signage will be advertising Domino’s.

The takeaway will be accessed from Orleton Road, off Parys Road and Sheet Road, with the business serving residents, businesses and passing traffic off the A49.

The application, submitted by AEW Architects on behalf of Arvi Salariya, does not mention what the opening hours will be. If plans are approved, then it will mean that two pizza firms will be operating near each other.

Ludlow Pizza Company is situated further along, at Lingen Road, and some people are questioning why Domino’s would want to add to the competition.

Geraldine Ward is one person who is fan of Ludlow Pizza Company.

“It’s been there for 14 years, brilliant pizzas and offers on most days,” she said.

However, Clair Calleja says it will be nice to have another option.

“As a town, we are not always given a choice and is something we need more of,” she said.

The retail unit was previously approved for outline planning permission in October 2019.

Spencer Manufacturing wanted it to be used as a shop and takeaway before the proposal was modified. At this point, the applicant said there was no intention to use the premises for a hot food takeaway and it was expected to be used for on/off sales of coffee, sandwiches and snacks.

The planning permission was granted however, which allows hot food takeaway to be used.

The Ludlow Advertiser has approached Domino's for a comment.
