Write now to stop the loss of another Lewisham pub

The Catford Bridge Tavern team have launched a campaign website to fight plans to turn the pub into flats and ground floor retail. As discussed here, the risk of it closing is real and would be a serious setback for Catford and for local drinking options.

The team write:

As the pub is already licensed for the sale of alcohol, it is a prime target for a retail unit. The landlord needs only apply for planning permission with no regulations to stop him. We would like to ask you to join us in opposing the application and therefore retaining your beautiful pub. There are a number of ways that you can do this and we have listed them below. 

We have launched a petition, which you can sign here.

Or, if you are willing to write on our behalf, please email:
