Here’s the problem
Developers want to turn The Cross Keys into a McMansion complete with basement swimming pool!
With your help we can save The Cross Keys, it’s easy but you must ACT NOW
When property developers asked the council for permission to turn this 300 year old pub into a McMansion they were told to get lost.
But now they’ve launched an appeal.
And for the fate of The Cross Keys that’s pivotal. Because an appeal’s a place where money talks. Given the millions that are at stake, the developers are sure to be represented by only the most experienced – and most expensive – advisors.
In short, they’re likely to spend whatever’s needed to hit the jackpot on this one. Even if the local community suffers as a result.
And that’s why it’s essential that we – as a community – fight back as hard as we can.
If you believe that the loss of this historic, much cherished pub will damage our community – and diminish the quality of local life – here’s how YOU can help.

It’s not just The Cross Keys
The same group of developers who own the Cross Keys also own the famous Phene Arms in in Phene Street. And yes, they’ve applied to turn that into a luxury house too. The appeal date for the Phene Arms is yet to be set – but the application’s already in.
