I should like to register my objection to the above new planning application for change of use to a private dwelling.
The communities of Sibford Gower, Sibford Ferris and Burdrop really need the facility of the local public house. It is a focal point of the village and during the recent scheduled auction of the property, lots of interest was expressed to take on the property as a going concern, including a brewery and a local consortium. If the property loses it's status it is likely to be permanent, and one more loss of vital facilities to our community.
As a public house, tourism, amongst other benefits to the local and surrounding community, is encouraged.
Please do not allow this change of use to be granted. We hope that the elected council will look favourably on the rejection of this case.
