I am writing to you to strongly object to the latest planning application for change of use to private dwelling (09/01557F),for the Bishop Blaize public house.
I live in Sibford Ferris, no more than a mile from this pub, which been closed for two years since Mr & Mrs Noquet decided to try to get to change of use to private dwelling for the pub buildings. This must not be allowed. The Bishop Blaize was always the “drinking pub “ in the Sibfords and it is sorely missed.
The long documentation put forward by Mr & Mrs Noquet is nothing new.
Just a restatement of their views, with a lot of bile and insults and some serious economies with the truth !!
The previous owner ran the Bishop Blaize properly and profitably. Mr & Mrs Noquet ran the pub badly ( perhaps deliberately ) and drove their clientele away. That is why it started losing money.
Please do not accept allow this application which would remove a vital village amenity.
Mrs Briony Franklin
