New bid to make village pub into a home

The DuCane Arms

The DuCane Arms

First published in Local News

Owners of a village pub are making another bid to turn it into a home.

Barking Dogs Ltd was refused permission to change the DuCane Arms, in Tiptree Road, Great Braxted, into a five-bedroom house in January.

At the time, Maldon District Council had said it was not a sustainable location and would result in the loss of a community asset.

A new bid has been submitted to make it into a home with a first floor rear extension and detached double garage.

Make it a home; stop the NIMBYs. We need fewer pubs as many of those who wish to drink so at home do so as it's cheaper.

It's much nicer to have a decent, occupied house than an empty building.
