It has been a while since we’ve posted to our supporters via this news page, but rest assured the Steering Team have been working hard behind the scenes. You may be interested to read the message below, sent out yesterday to all the investors.
“The latest and best offer made by Grindleton Community Pub has been rejected by the owner.
The Asset of Community Value moratorium period ends today and from tomorrow the current owner is free to sell to a third party.
We have made clear to the owner that we remain an interested party and are committed to ensuring that the future of the Duke of York is as a pub, irrespective of ownership.
He has been made aware that we have expert planning opinion stating that any future planning application for change of use would fail and it therefore supports the original RVBC refusal of change of use.
The steering team will be reviewing our options over the next week.”
