A PUB or a B1 business unit: The Pelican Arms?

A public house was always planned to be part of the village square. We have been told that the village needs a B1 business unit instead. I for one don’t believe this.

It is very clear from the Upper Rissington public that the village needs a family pub, that serves good food and must have sufficient parking. Oh and if it’s feasible a Sports bar showing the popular football games.

What do you think of the Pelican Arms?

The plans below were issued by Linbo to be positioned between the Gym and the School.

  1. We need to get a group of serious like mined people together to make this happen! I will set the ball rolling this week by raising it with our MP but we need support from URPC to lobby our intentions at CDC!

  2. Whilst the thought of a pub is rather nice and traditional, the idea that you just build a nice country pub is rather simplistic and one has to ask the question do you want a rural pub or an estate gin palace? The fact that no investors have come forward to develop a new pub, then it probably represents an uncertain investment.

    1. Think you have summed it up. The trend these days is for pubs to close not open. I just hope the B1 unit is nor guaranteed planning permission.

  3. To be viable the building must be multifunctional and the team managing the process will need some imagination to think out of the box. This will be the challenge!
