Protestors occupying the site of a former pub in Barnstaple have been evicted. The residents of the Forches estate moved in to the Borough Arms three weeks ago after plans were approved for its demolition.
The campaigners say they haven't given up hope that it can still be turned into a community centre rather than housing.
People in Barnstaple who've been occupying their former pub for two weeks to try to stop it being demolished, have now been told they must leave.
But today's deadline has come and gone, and locals are vowing to fight on. They've now officially registered a right to buy the pub if the proposed development of flats and houses falls through. Seth Conway reports.
Following North Devon Council's recent decision to vacate the Civic Centgre in Barnstaple, a local firm of architects has come up with a plan to convert the building into apartments.
Barnstaple based Peregrine Mears Architects feel that the property could be put to better use by being tranformed into residential apartments.
Practice director Peregrine Mears commented:
“Whilst there is not a lot of love locally for the civic centre, maybe the time is right to consider an alternative use that will take the building into the 21st century. We believe the building is capable of conversion to residential use."
There are many unloved tower blocks from the 1960’s elsewhere in the UK that have been given a new lease of life by converting them to residential use, so why not here?” "
