A petition has been created to try and stop the proposed redevelopment of a Pevensey pub.
Beach Tavern in Sea Road, has a history of serving teas to passers-by since the early 1900s and was last year, sold.
Now an application has been submitted to demolish the old building and replace it with a block of flats. This has angered some residents, who say ‘the essential character of our community is under threat’ and they’ve started an online petition to gather support against the proposals, with nearly 300 people signing within 3 days.
The petition, on change.org, will be presented to Councillor Robert Standley, Leader of Wealden District Council. Comments can be made about the application direct to the authority until Friday 3 March.
