Good afternoon Mr Lewis
With reference to 09/01557/F, I would like to add my name to the scores of others opposing this application.
There have been numerous reasons, articulately put, why the Bishop Blaize should not be de-licensed and be granted change of use to a residential dwelling.
The previous identical application garnered the same level of opposition and was duly refused. In the meantime, Mr and Mrs Noquet put in an application for ‘letting rooms’. This was supported by a number of villagers including myself. In the 15 page document that was submitted by Mr and Mrs Noquet in support of the current application, they claim that the ‘letting rooms’ application was refused. Since I received a letter from CDC saying the application was withdrawn I conclude that this is a falsehood.
I would like to assure you that
there is plenty of support for local pubs that provide good service, good food
and good value. The owners of the Norman Knight at Whichford have recently built
an additional dining room. At the beginning of December they had already
taken 600 bookings for the Festive Season. The Stag’s Head at Swalcliffe is
consistently well patronised, as the number of parked cars around the village
testify. Far from being on the brink of closure, the
Please don’t be duped by Mr and Mrs Noquet and their spurious claims that there is no potential in running the Bishop Blaize as a, once again, successful entity. There are several interested parties who are keen to do exactly that.
