Devin: I saw that there was a previous application for the demolition of this corner pub which, I thought, had been refused. It’s hard to believe that DCC would grant permission for this. This building is an example of a perfectly decent corner structure in good condition and of a scale that reflects the original scale of the streetscape.

The last remaining former gabled house on Chamber Street virtually adjoins this pub and is currently in a perilous condition, having been vacant and on the market for about a year now. If the corner gets demolished and redeveloped, the context in which you could make a reasonable case for the retention and restoration of the gabled house will disappear.
