A huge thanks to everyone who made the effort to come to Fairview’s exhibition yesterday and today. We counted around 150 people attending and 96% of those were against the demolition of the pub. We will await Fairview’s summary of the comments with interest.
As expected, Fairview were full of misinformation and spin over the two days. Among the lies we overheard: “this site has been designated by the council for residential use”, “the pub runs at a loss and is not financially viable”, and “developers do not build flats with a pub on-site”. All of which were untrue and we were able to refute with facts.
Fairview know that there is huge community opposition to their scheme and that opposition is growing rather than dissipating. That is thanks to all of you for speaking up for your pub, for your high street and for your community.
