14 April 2010Local Pubs - Planned demolition
Pubs under threat in Chesterton
Breaking News on the Fleur
A Development control Forum was held at the Guildhall on 14 April to discuss the proposal for demolition of the pub and the developer's proposed replacement following a petition by residents objecting to the proposals.
No decisions can be taken at a Development Control Forum, it is an informal meeting between the parties and the City Council with members of the Planning Committee in attendance. There was an excellent turnout from residents and councillors asked some very pertinent questions of the developer's representative. It is clear that the developer will need to give serious thought to his proposals following this meeting.
Issues raised will be the subject of another item on this page.
