Reject Planning Application DC/12/81142/X

    1. Catford Bridge Tavern
    2. Petition by

      Catford Bridge Tavern

      Treuen, Germany

The Planning Application DC/12/81142/X proposes the conversion of the 2 floors above Catford Bridge Tavern to be turned into 5 self-sustainable flats and the basement to be turned into retail storage. It is based on an Design & Access Statement which says that the ground floor will be turned into retail space once the flats are built and a national retailer is already interested to take over the new retail space. This means our pub will get shut down. Please help us prevent this from happening.

      Catford is in dire need of places where the community can meet. This area has a distinct lack of places to socialise and therefore the residents go elsewhere. This has caused a fragmentation and lack of pride in the area. And is causing businesses to close. We need to restore a sense of pride and community in Catford. Closing popular businesses is not the way to do it. We don't need another Tesco Xpress or Subway in SE London!!

      The loss of a community centre in a deprived area such as this is a disaster for all.

      The recent success of this pub in the last year has shown what can be achieved by a well-managed pub offering decent food and drink and meeting the needs of local people. It is a success story and an example to pubs all over the country. Pubs are social levells and vital economic engines of social and cultural regeneration. People do not stand with the neighbours putting the world to rights at the back of Tesco's freezer isle. They do however sit in the pub and engage in political debate and become active in local issues. This is about community cohesion. People need suitable meeting places. Don't be daft - save the pub!

      It's a hub and the best pub around for miles.

      Pubs are part of the lifeblood of the community. Catford needs the tavern.
