Subject: Bishop's Blaize Attn Andrew Lewis



We contest the current proposal to change the use of the Bishop’s Blaize in Burdrop into a private dwelling.

Prior to its sale to the present owners the Bishop’s Blaize was a thriving pub. It was well known in the locality for providing a warm welcome – a place where you could meet for a drink or take your family for wholesome food. It was regarded as an integral part of the community and was always well supported by local people and visitors to the area.

We all hope that one day the Blaize (as it is affectionately known) will re-open and reaffirm its previous status in our small community.

We therefore oppose the proposal to turn it into a private dwelling.
