Red Lion Demolition Rejected

Red Lion Haddenham

Planning permission was granted some months ago for two dwellings to be built on land currently occupied by outbuildings to the rear of the Red Lion.

Developers subsequently submitted a revised planning application, seeking to demolish the former pub and replace it with a new third dwelling. This application was rejected by local planning authorities, but this decision was delayed beyond prescribed time limits and developers appealed the decision on the basis of this technical failure.

On 10th June the Planning Inspectorate rejected the appeal.

This means that, unless the developers submit a revised proposal, it seems that the Red Lion building is unlikely to be demolished as part of the site development and will hopefully remain in its current form as a familiar part of the Church End panorama.
