Subject: Planning ref. 09/01275/F

This planning application is nothing more than a back door attempt to obtain change of use on a previousy viable public house.Since buying the Bishop Blaize the owners have made no serious attemt to run the premises as intended but to run it down ASAP & claim that it is unviable. They obviously have no intention to open the premises as a pub but may be hoping that if they obtained change of use to "Hotel" a future application to change to "Residential" may be more likely to succeed.The very poor drawings with the application do show that the proposed development would in no way enhance the existing property nor the surrounding area which of course in a conservation area. I suggest that this application is rejected.
