Carluccio’s gets go-ahead to open in Shrewsbury

Upmarket Italian restaurant Carluccio’s has been given the go-ahead to open in Shrewsbury next to the town’s new £10.5 million museum and art gallery, creating 35 jobs.

The restaurant chain has been given planning permission by Shropshire Council to take over the Jane Dyas building in The Square, rejecting attempts by  Shrewsbury Town Centre Residents’ Association to limit its opening hours.

The association had wanted the restaurant and delicatessen’s opening hours to be restricted to 8am to 10pm over fears about late night noise disturbing residents.

But permission has been granted for it to open till midnight Monday to Saturday and until 11.30pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

Case officer Kate Whitfield said the planned opening hours were “reasonable”.

“The site is situated within the heart of the town centre where there are a significant number of late opening premises,” her report said.

Documents submitted to Shropshire Council as part of the application said the restaurant would create 35 jobs, replacing the one full-time worker and 11 part-time staff employed at Jane Dyas.

Happy days

Happy days! maybe STCRA will crawl back under the stone they came from.....


Great news for the Town.Nice to see that the council have backed this.I live and run my business in the Town Centre and accept that in living there to expect noise and the buzz that should become a vibrant area.Not a big surprise to hear that the not in my back yard brigade have been in opposition to somthing that improves the Town and provides much needed employment.I hardly think the expected clientle of this establishment would cause any anti social behaviour.

Good News At last the town centre residents have been defeated in their efforts to keep the town in the 19thC.A

super asset for the town and no doubt the TCR will be using the facilities like they use the OMH after objecting to it.!!!!¬
