Closed pub could become house

First published in News

A FORMER pub in Stonesfield could be converted into a home.

Richard Peet has submitted plans to West Oxfordshire District Council to change the use of The Black Head, in Church Street.

A two-storey rear extension, with a pitched roof, forms part of the proposals.

The pub was one of two in the village, alongside the White Horse Inn.

The Black Head used to have quiz nights, a darts league, Aunt Sally games, ladies’ cinema nights, curry nights and Sunday lunches.

It closed in February 2010 after been run by Chris and Karen Bannister from July 2008.

We need to stop supermarkets selling alcohol, and we also need the pub companies given a large slap by Government.

I wouldn't stop the supermarkets selling alcohol altogether, but I'd set a nice high minimum price, somewhere nearer £2/can for a 5% drink.
