The Black Cap Saved...

Well it looks like The Black Cap pub has been saved after all. With a bit of help from Michelle Collins.


Plans to convert part of famous Black Cap pub into flats are rejected by planning chiefs. A statement from the council on Monday read: “Although officers considered that use of the second and third floors of the pub, which currently provides ancillary accommodation, to residential would be acceptable, there were strong concerns about the loss of the first floor which forms an active part of this popular pub. The ground floor of the building is used for cabaret and the first-floor space provides a quieter meeting environment for the community. It was considered that the loss of the pub and restaurant use at first floor would be detrimental to the gay and lesbian community for whom this is a key meeting place.” 


Er, "popular"?
