Is The Plough, Sandygate Road

The Plough pub on Sandygate Road has been listed as an asset of community value.

This means that that in the event of it being put up for sale the group lodging the application would be given time to come up with a bid to buy it. There is no guarantee that this bid would be accepted by the seller.

With the rumoured threat of the pub being sold and turned into a convenience store, a group of regulars have launched an online change.org petition and a paper petition in the pub that you’re invited to sign. There’s also a Save the Plough Facebook community group which they’ll use to keep everyone up to date.

The Plough is one of three remaining pubs in Crosspool and it is believed that a public house has stood on the site for around 400 years. The pub is famously located opposite Hallam FC’s Sandygate stadium, the oldest football ground in the world.

A bid to get The Plough pub listed as a community asset is due to be heard by the council on Thursday 4 June.

If the pub were to be listed as an asset of community value it would mean that, in the event of it being put up for sale, the group lodging the application would be given time to come up with a bid to buy it. There is no guarantee that this bid would be accepted by the seller.

With the rumoured threat of the pub being sold and turned into a convenience store, a group of regulars have launched an online change.org petition and a paper petition in the pub that you’re invited to sign.

A group of regulars at The Plough have started a campaign to protect the pub from any future attempts to close it or turn it into a convenience store.

The Plough is one of three remaining pubs in Crosspool and it is believed that a public house has stood on the site for around 400 years. The pub is famously located opposite Hallam FC’s Sandygate stadium, the oldest football ground in the world.

There’s currently speculation around what the future holds for the Sandygate Road pub. As a result, a group of drinkers are exploring whether it could be registered as a community asset to help protect it from any future developments.

They’ve launched an online change.org petition and a paper petition in the pub that you’re invited to sign. There’s also a Save the Plough Facebook community group which they’ll use to keep everyone up to date.

Concerns were also raised by Crosspool residents at the Open Meeting last Friday and a local councillor has promised to investigate how likely it is that The Plough will become a convenience store.
