The Raven Inn.

CLHG gets action in other places : British Archaeology

The magazine of the Council for British Archaeology ["CBA"] "British Archaeology"  in their May/June 2019 issue have considered the Raven Inn to be similar to Carlton Tavern, York case and discuss both in their article 'casenotes 43 ' by Bob Sykes, the CBA's listed buildings caseworker for  England. The CBA considered the original planning application for the Raven Inn flawed (with a considerable number of mistakes) and would result in "total loss" and the "harm" would be considerable. Thus they lodged an objection. They noted that the original planning application was withdrawn just as they went to press. This was as a result of a CLHG member advising them of the application to demolish the Raven Inn.

 In the March 2019 edition of Culcheth Life issue 192 , it is reported that  the campaigners
for the 'saving' of The Raven Inn have had some success.

The developers Osborne and Co have writtent to the campaigners saying they have acceped "the views of the majority of objections".The campaigners had set up a fighting fund to fund action to adjust or alter the proposals and their fund still needs cash in case of further developments.

"Facebook Group".  (Applicants need to join the group as it a "closed group".)

The campaigners have set up a "closed group" on Facebook. Where only members of the group may read  entries. Should you wish to join the campaign group, you can register to join on the group page.
