    It’s an application, not a decision, so it’s not yet ‘set’. Please, object! The owners have marketed it as a pub at a ludicrous rent, and neglected the building to try to achieve what they planned all along: demolition and redevelopment.

    Very sad to hear The Plough is going to be demolished, yet another piece of Crosspool history lost in the name of progress, more money to be made putting boxy little houses on the site. Very sad.

    There are some greedy people in the world. They bought it knowing full-well it was listed as an asset of community value, and have just cynically bought their time before trying to run roughshod over planning laws and the local community. What a big and horrendously ugly block they want to put in its place too!

    I wonder if the Football Association and the National Football Museum can be brought on board to support/promote the campaign?

    Some yellow ribbons tied on the fences would look nice.

    The pub was hardly used so it shut, it’s just economics. People should use the facilities locally or accept they will disappear.
