Withdean Councillor Joins Fight To Save Local Pub

Cllr. Nick Taylor, Conservative Councillor for Withdean ward, joined local residents at a public meeting of the Save the Dyke Pub Campaign on the 20th June.

The group has been campaigning to save the Dyke Pub since its sudden closure over a weekend in 2016. The group have recently hired pub expert Dale Ingram to help campaign against the closure and to reopen the pub for the community.

Cllr. Nick Taylor said “Despite all the disappointments and a refusal of the current owners to work with the local community, the committee are really positive and it was a pleasure to join them.

Pubs have always been tremendous meeting places and there are precious few such amenities in the area.

The Dyke was a well used pub and I will be setting out my objections to the planning applications in due course.

I would encourage all concerned residents to make their objections known to the Council.”
