Cross Keys Pub, Spalding Moor

Last pub in the village of Spalding Moor near Hull to be lost:

This received permission last year, and it looks like the demolition is going ahead very soon.

It is always a shame to lose a pub, but when its the only pub, that is tragic. What a boring place this will now be. Moreover, this pub sits on the cross roads in the centre of the village. Its a landmark building. It is the focal point of the settlement. Urban design is not a new science anymore. We know the damage that this type of development and demolition does to a community. There are so many ways a planning officer could refuse this development based on local policy. I know this because I am a planning officer, and there is always a way to make the right thing happen.
