It looks like there will be a re-run of the debate and vote on the future of the Carlton Tavern. The Planning Committee (on the casting vote of the Chairman) agreed last month that the pub be demolished to make way for an elderly care home.
Various sources on social media are now claiming that the Council will look again at the proposal following threats of a Judicial Review by a national amenity society.
Council officials have, apparently, agreed to further clarify the planning advice that they gave the committee.
Quite whether this will make any difference remains to be seen. It is at least a possibility that different Councillors may attend the meeting making it possible that a different conclusion will be reached.
We will see.
It seems that the Council is caught between a rock and a hard place.
