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?
If you remember in the last petition I outlined that this is the 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 over 200 people signed this petition last time to keep it. 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. Has anyone really tried to make this pub work by connecting to the needs of the local community or was it never the intent to continue to run this as a pub all all ? Does this sound familiar ? It’s sad that the pub has been closed for such a long time - dont let it end up being closed for good - We need your help to stop this - please log on to Northumberland County Council Planning Website and make your voice heard against new Planning application No: 18/02349/FUL COMMENTS MUST BE MADE BY 30th AUGUST. If Planning is denied and the pub reopens, we need a partnership between the community and the owner in making this work.
How it will be delivered
I will let Northumberland County Council know that this petition is ongoing and keep them posted on its progress
