Save the Plough campaigners are asking people to be vigilant after receiving unverified reports that the new owner of The Plough may be considering demolishing the building this week.

They’re asking people to let them know of any suspicious activity using ploughsandygate@gmail.com or to contact Planning Enforcement at the council.

Ben Curran, council cabinet member for planning and development said: “I don’t know any more than I’ve read here, but it’s probably best to assume the information is accurate. I will get the team to get on this first thing in the morning with a view to preventing demolition.”

    What a mess the ‘ Save the Plough group’ have created.

      How? Greedy property developers are trying to build a huge ugly pre-fab towerblock on the site, so they can cream off a few million more to their Cayman Island tax havens. Surely keeping a beautiful old stone building and turning it into a precious community hub is worth fighting for?

    The Building as been boarded now for nineteen months .It’s in really bad state beyond restoration.No use too anyone the community failed too buy the asset. The site is crying out for development.

    What’s historic about this structure? Nothing. Lost a far more historic public house in the shape of the Old Blue Ball in Hillsborough.

    • Crosspudlian says:

      It was built by the famous architect Wynyard Dixon (who parts of Hillsborough are actually named after) and is a national historic asset because of its global importance in the history of football.

    Do you really want some ugly monstrosity like this: http://spacepad.co.uk/property/psaltergallery/images/PL-03.jpg or this: http://spacepad.co.uk/property/westgalley/images/01.jpg built on the site, rather than a well-run community pub?

    There is a unit placed in the yard there. The type builders use. It’s just a matter of time and It is shocking .
