Our Village Pub?
There is a new proposal from the owner of the Pheasant that anticipates building houses on the site and refurbishing the pub. Details of the planning application (16/01203/OUT) are on the MHDC website. The indicative layout can be downloaded here
Also, the owner's Planning Consultant will be at the Village Hall this Friday 21st October between 3pm and 5pm to explain the plan and get your feedback. Do drop in and have your say.
Could this be the first step toward getting a back a pub at the centre of the village?
Over the past 18 months, Parish Councillors have had discussions with a number of bodies including community help groups, architects, developers and the district council about the Pheasant. We have talked about community trusts and other community ownership models and about the viability of rural pubs as commercial investments. Several residents even got together and prepared paperwork to form an investment company but uncertainty about the future of the site put an end to that, at least for the time being.
If you have strong views on the future of the Pheasant, if you have personal experience of other communities in this situation or if you are interested in being close to this situation as it develops please get in touch with the Parish Council or comment on the forum page of the website.
