A new petrol station and convenience store is being built in Ludlow which could see the creation of 20 jobs.
Applegreen, who have one the UK’s fastest expanding networks of petrol stations and convenience stores, will take on the lease on the development, which is on the site of the former Burway Abattoir site in Bromfield Road.
The developer, Mead House Pension Fund, said work is scheduled to begin in June and hopes to complete the work in October.
The company’s nearest petrol station and store to Ludlow is at Church Stretton.
The new Applegreen business aims to cater for the needs of local residents, commuters, long distance travellers and tourists alike with the company priding itself on its ‘low fuel prices, always’ policy.
“We are delighted to announce that Applegreen has signed a lease for the new petrol station and the 3,000 square foot convenience store in Ludlow, which is going to bring low fuel prices and a good food offering to South Shropshire,” said a spokesman for Mead House.
“It has taken a long time to get to this point, but we are now making real progress, which is great news for Ludlow interms of investment and jobs. We expect the build to take around 16 weeks, which means the petrol station and store should be open in October.”
John Diviney, managing director of Applegreen UK, said: “We at Appelgreen are delighted to be involved in this project and look forward to providing the people of Ludlow and commuters with our retail proposition of low fuel prices together with an international food to go offering.”
