Planning Refusal. On 17th August Breckland District Council issued a Refusal notice against the planning application to build three more houses at the pub and reduce the pub by about half. This represents another significant milestone in our campaign to buy The Ploughshare and operate it as a community pub. We would like to thank all the supporters who wrote to BDC with objections as this was noted by the planning officer as a contributing factor. We will continue to raise funds and promote our share offer while in the meantime discussing the purchase with the owner.
