Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

Sorry JGD but I still can't see anything about that in the planning application documents. As I'm sure you know, anyone can make a planning application. An applicant doesn't have to own the site or even have any kind of contract arrangement in place. The planning application's "Declaration of ...

Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

According to the ownership declaration on the Planning Application, the All Inn One is still owned by the current landlords. Do you know otherwise? Yes. To the best of my knowledge a commercial contract arrangement is in place regarding the transaction of the sale of the business. It is to be assum...

Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

To avoid any doubt or ambiguity. My support is predicated on there being a comparably sized pub within the development. A garden space is desirable. But any subsequent walk back or change of use, post granting of planning permission or indeed before such permission is granted, will be resisted. It j...

Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

Do not think so. The new owners have proposed a new building for the hotel and the new pub. And have made a very public commitment in the local press to delivering the pub element. And since the pub first appeared in the mid-1800's it has been remodelled several times. From the high point of the 197...

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

I love the view of the gasholders, so 'unloved' is not strictly correct, although I do acknowledge I seem to be one of the few not the many on this! May be a little more balanced than you think nicknack - there is a significant number of supporters of the view of the gas-holders - as demonstrated b...

Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

Linda and I have over 45 years of patronage in this pub, since the mid-1970's, through many phases both very good and very bad. The existing pub building has been re-modelled several times since its inception in the mid-1800's.and has had many makeovers. It is essential that support for this proposa...

Pretty sure this item is not in line with the OP's original intent - but it has some relevance.

Re: Worst local transport journeys?

It does not work very well for this route as the bus is usually parked up with the engine off and therefore not transmitting its whereabouts because of the large intervals between services, both coming south and going north. Unfortunately FH station and Bell green are extremely close ot the startin...

Sorry its confusing Robin.

Too late for me to change though.

JRM is not a member, it is one of the more polite abbreviations for Jacob Rees-Mogg. He is a parliamentarian of questionable repute.
