The Pear Tree pub in Hildersham, Cambridgeshire has been at the heart of our village community for decades. In August the pub closed to customers due to "broken cellar coolers" but the owner (who has only had the pub for 18 months) has continued to assure us that they would re-open in the new year.
However, on 3rd December 2013 a planning application was lodged with South Cambridgeshire District Council to change the use from a pub to a German furniture shop! The work, that has already started, to convert the pub to a shop is not appropriate for a building within the Conservation Area.
Although Hildersham has a beautiful church, the pub is the only amenity within the community where people can eat, drink and meet up with others. It is vitally important that this facility is not taken away from the local community.
We need to show South Cambridgeshire District Council the strength of feeling towards this application and we urge you to sign our petition.
Thank you for your support.
We, the undersigned, urge South Cambridgeshire District Council Planning Department to refuse any application which will result in the closure of the Pear Tree as a pub in Hildersham.
