Urgent please help to save The Railway Inn Fourstones

Urgent please help to save The Railway Inn Fourstones

Please don't allow the Railway Inn at Fourstones to be converted to a dwelling - the community need the pub and with the right management and commitment it is a viable business - save it and the community will use it !

Why is this important?

This is our village pub, its been neglected by a succession of owners - I understand the community and others have offered to buy the pub, its a community asset that we all want to keep. There has been little done to make this into a viable going concern, but the current owner has applied to have it converted into a house. Was this the intent all along ? Does this sound familiar ? Run the pub down, then covert it into a house and sell it at a profit ?. We need your help to stop this - please log on to Northumberland County Council Planning Website and make your voice heard against Planning No: 17/01323/FUL

Fourstones, Hexham

Reasons for signing

  • Many a good night in there, every village needs its hub and this is the perfect place.
  • Fourstones is a small village that needs a focal point for the community. The same thing happened in Catton recently but the pub was fortunately bought and is now a thriving business that brings visitors to the village as well as providing a meeting place for residents.
  • I grew up in Fourstones and have a memory or few from this pub, having a local pub is very important in a community.
