Head of Planning
With reference to the planning application 09/01275/F.
Mr and Mrs Norquet have made it very clear to my husband and myself verbally that they do not intend reopening the Bishops Blaze as a public House.  Therefore I question why they are making an application for letting rooms at the pub, should this not be granted with a restriction that the property must be a fully functioning Public House which may merit letting rooms.
It seems to me from my dealings with the owner that this is just another way for him to add value to his Property as was his application to turn the Bishops Blaize into a residential dwelling.
My family and I who live 50 yards from this pub, do still wish to have and will utilise a Public House in Burdrop.  We have had a valuable village meeting point and hub of the Village taken away from us by Mr Norquet and feel this planning application is just another way for him to continue to do so.  What value will this bring to the village, none unless the Public House is functioning at the same time, so we object to this planning application on the above grounds.
