We did it!

Yes... Yes.. Yes. We did it. we managed to get a result to prevent them converting a local pub in our Ward into this bloody monstrosity...

The Planning Inspectorate have rejected Blue Chip Casinos appeal against the Council decision to refuse them permission to convert The Barleycorn pub into an all-night gambling house. A fantastic victory for people power. We succeeded in making the case that this Planning Application was offensive and disruptive to people in the locality. I'm so pleased I think I'll go and have a pint to celebrate!
