HOME OF FOOTBALL WILL BE LOST FOREVER “UPDATE”

Thanks to everyone who submitted an objection to the proposed demolition of the former Plough Inn. Over 150 objections have been submitted which shows the strength of community support for this iconic building.

Due to one of the site notices only going out in late June, we have now been informed that objections to the proposal can be made up to July 22nd 2019. So, if you didn’t get round to submitting an objection, you still have time.
Obviously, the more objections made, the better the chance of saving the building.

HOME OF FOOTBALL WILL BE LOST FOREVER

THE DEADLINE IS JULY 3RD.

As most of you will know, an application to demolish the Plough has been submitted to the planning committee. The application would see the Plough replaced by eight houses on the site, none of which would be affordable for many of the local people.

We are asking as many people as possible to object to this application in order to protect such a historic building as the Plough. The main reasons for objecting are: The Plough was listed as an Asset of Community Value in April 2018 which protects its status as a public house. This decision was based on widespread support from the community, individuals, families and local organisations such as Crosspool Forum.
The recent planning history of the site confirmed the value of the Plough to the local community.
In January 2017, the planning committee refused an application for change of use on the basis that the pub catered for a wide section of the local community.
The Plough has significant heritage value not only to the local area but to the city as a whole. It is a landmark building and is closely associated with the history of football in the city. The local authority should be looking to preserve such buildings and to promote them as part of its ‘home of football’ campaign.
The application to demolish the Plough does not provide any evidence to suggest that it is not viable as a public house. The developer states that no offers were received to lease the pub but this was because it was only offered for a completely unrealistic rent of £50,000 per annum. Average rents in our region are between £24,000 and £29,000.
Please make an objection as soon as you can, using the link below:
