Why is this important? In a nutshell the Flying Pig is a great pub and its loss would be deeply felt amongst the local community. There has already been wide support against the demolition of the Flying Pig and we need to back this up with a petition to the Council in the form of a letter which sets out why Conservation Area consent should not be given.
In order to justify their actions the developer and others may claim that the wider public would benefit from the demolition and redevelopment of the Flying Pig. If we can demonstrate that the wider public is in fact against the demolition and redevelopment of the Flying Pig, by getting as many people to sign this petition as possible, then it would be much more difficult for the developer and others to argue their case and for the Council to give Conservation Area consent for demolition.
So please help us to save the Flying Pig by signing this petition.
