Last ditch attempt to save the Maiden Over pub fails to convince Wokingham council

Story in getreading

The government needs to sort its act out and give councils planning provision to stand up against big, predatory pub companies flogging off pubs to big predatory supermarkets. These pub conversion to shop disputes are happening to communities all over Britain.

Local Authorities don't have planning powers to stop well organised developers from walking all over the pathetically weak legislative pub protection tools available.

Hundreds of communities have lost their last social hubs already and hundreds more are being blighted by deliberately run down, blatantly asset stripped pubs that are made unfit for purpose pubs by profiteering pub companies ready to be flogged off to pay interest on debts they raised to buy the property in the first place.

This is the #GreatBritishPubcoScam It's coming to a pub near you.
