Betty,

The fact that most people get around by car now is a problem too. 50 years ago most people wouldn't have batted an eyelid at walking from CFV to Nailsworth. Nowadays some people have to drive 400m to the shops. This makes it harder to make a pub in a relatively isolated position work.

I wonder what will be done to the corner? It would be a shame if it was straightened out as this would increase the average speed along the A46. As it is it acts as quite a good brake on speeds along the straight stretch.

Well, I've sent in my objection to this planning appeal to: planning@stroud.gov.uk

If anyone else wants to do the same, the S.D.C. planning reference is: S.05/1728/FUL

Governements can of course intervene and often do, although not always successfully. For instance, Mr Lamont tried to intervene in the ERM crisis but market forces quashed his attempts at great expense to the country.

Small markets can for a period of time be manipulated but liquid and huge markets (such as the property market) are not within reach of the manipulative glove.

They are 'within reach of the manipulative glove'. It's just political suicide to do so.

Full details of the application can be found here:

http://www.stroud.gov.uk/docs/planning/planning_application_detail.asp?AppRef=S.07/0885/FUL

It bugs me that yet again, it is favourable to someone to destroy a perfectly good building, (in this case a significant part of our heritage) in order to cram in a couple of extra dwellings.

Watching the Daily Politics Show this morning raised an important point that more land needs to be made available everywhere for housing.

Nailsworth has had its share in recent years but if the same was seen elsewhere then property would become more affordable and such massive profits would not be available to developers as seen at the Crown.

From the "SUMMARY OF RECENT HISTORY" which forms part of the planning application:


Quotation:
"In conclusion, it is accepted by all parties that The Crown Inn is a disused/rundown public house which is no longer economically viable run a hostelry at Inchbrook.

It is therfore imperative that this location, the site of the former Crown Inn, be regenerated as soon as possible by the demolition of the disused public house and the construction of the proposed development."


They fail to mention that it was the current owners that allowed the building to become rundown.

Also, I fail to see why anything has to be done "as soon as possible". Once the Crown is gone it will be gone forever, time must be taken to make sure all other eventualities are considered.

A better option for everyone (except for the developers) could be to turn the property into a single dwelling, perhaps offering B&B.

Thanks to Dave for info. very useful. ideally I would have gone into SDC myself but now a days it means walking to Dunkirk and getting a bus, then more walking. The plan shows what a large space there is, apart from the inn site. The Inn needed attention when it was bought by the applicant.who originally tried for the pub with a couple?of units for letting. (not allowed) It has been kept alive by new staff till they found their own accomodation. It was an enthusiastic neighbour who told me that the area outside his home on the corner would be tidied up. Not the actual structure of the bend.

Sorry that was me again. I try not to be anonymous. Is that how you spell it?

How long does an application like this take to process? IE when can we expect the building to be demolished.

Personally, I think it should be kept and maybe converted into a normal house or flats. I don't want to see yet another modern faceless identikit building such as the type that are now taking over this area!

Well no one seems to know what the frontage will look like as it probably means a visit to SDC Headquarters to find out.

You are right though B so many new builds use brick and are are duplicated all over place. Nailsworth really needs to keep it's unusual character.

The old Crown Inn is after all a Cotswold Stone building!

Have a look at CF village. There are no bricks. Incidentally, Nailsworth was all stone until the coming of the railway when bricks were imported from Stonehouse (1864)

Having once been very local to that site, I often thought it would make a good restaurant or a business*** which needed good parking facilities

*** maybe a small arcade of similar (craft?) businesses

I also opposed the deveoplment there (ten-ish?) years ago...as I recall that was multiple houses and it was turned down. Logically, therefore, the question is "what has changed since then". Another contributor suggests the answer to that is "it was purchased to be run down as a precursor to saying 'it's run down we need to demolish'"

If that is demonstrable fact then surely the new plans are stoppable and someone has been derelict in their duty (e.g building inspector/ conservation guys etc)

There is an emormous amount of speculation in what I have said - I am no position to know the facts - but maybe it will set a fire burning in someone's mind

Incidentally, passing the Crown, today, I note that is not built of stone but of covered up bits and pieces. The colour is painted.
