Restore the Chippenham Public House in Maida Vale

This petition had 834 supporters

The Maida Hill Business Improvement Council is a group of concerned residents and business owners with the goal of improving Maida Hill, Maida Vale and South Kilburn.

The Chippenham Pub on Shirland Road has become a neglected and dangerous eyesore, a blight on the beautiful neighborhood of Maida Hill. The Tel Aviv-based developer CLTX Ltd, who owns the property has historically shown complete disregard for the rule of law and has history of violating planning regulations with other properties they own.

1. The Chippenham is the birthplace of punk rock, the precise location of the very first gig of @TheClash, the legendary English punk rock band. This pub has earned a rightful place in musical history and is a source of vast community pride. With that historical knowledge, the undersigned hereby petition Historic England to list this Victorian pub as a heritage site and grant all appropriate protections afforded under English Law.  

2. The undersigned petition the Westminster and Brent Councils and our government representatives to list the pub as an Asset of Community Value and support the renovation and restoration of the Chippenham Pub to a punk rock, reggae and family friendly Public House in Maida Hill. 

3. The undersigned petition the Westminister and Brent Council to develop an integrated approach to South Kilburn and Maida Hill to improve services and to improve the retail environment for businesses to thrive in the area.
