Thanks for signing this petition to save the Chesham. We have set up another petition and are thus closing this one to save confusion, if you haven't already signed our other petition please do so!
We are campaigning for the Council to refuse planning permission for the conversion of the Chesham Arms into flats.
Too many are pubs being lost. Locally we are surrounded by pubs that have closed or have been converted to other uses, like betting shops or barbecue houses. Council policy is to defend pubs – saving the Wenlock Arms was right and popular and they should do the same again. The Council’s own policies list the Chesham Arms as a key building in the Conservation Area.
- The pub has been open for almost 150 years and is a vital part of the history of the street and area;
- The pub is a crucial social facility and hub for the local community;
- The pub is a viable business.

We call upon Hackney Council to prevent us from losing yet another local pub and refuse planning permission for the conversion of the Chesham Arms into flats.
