  • Corrib Rest plans rejected by Brent Planning Committee this evening (6th April)

    Brent Planning Committee Councillors have turned down the developer’s plans for The Corrib Rest Pub. They accepted Brent Officers’ recommendation to reject the plans. QPARA spoke to object to the plans. We have consistently argued that any plan should provide for a well-managed pub with adequate community space and protection for local residents.

  • QPARA vehemently objects to new Corrib Rest plans in time for Brent Planning Committee meeting tomorrow (Wednesday 06 April)

    Corrib Rest

    Brent Planning Officers think along the same lines as we do – that these plans should be rejected. But we hear the planning committee councillors are “mindful to accept”. Our own councillors and our MP are all concerned that these new plans do not afford adequate community space nor protect the Hopefield Avenue residents.

    Our position is that the developer has not fully embraced the community nature of the pub and the community/function rooms and the subsequent plans do not promote a viable community pub, provide adequate and sustainable community space or protect the Hopefield Ave residents. Here is our letter: QPARA Supplementary Letter 04 April 2016.

    The Planning Committee meeting starts at 7.00pm is open to the public (details here) for anyone who is able to attend.
