Former Carlisle pub can be knocked down, says council
Last updated at 10:39, Monday, 31 March 2014
A Carlisle pub is set to be knocked down after the city council approved demolition plans.
The Pedestrian Arms on Newtown Road, which has been shut for more than a year, looks set to bite the dust after planners gave the application the go-ahead.
The bar is one of more than a dozen community pubs that have closed in the city in the last 10 years and at least one – the Rose & Crown at Upperby – has already been knocked down.
Derek McKenzie, of Wreay, applied for the demolition notice, saying it was in too bad a way to restore.
He said he did not know yet what might replace the building.
In the city centre, a string of modern bars that serve food and open late have sprung up throughout the last decade. But residential streets have seen more traditional pubs boarded up, demolished or turned into other businesses.
Landlords have called time in estates and areas including Caldewgate, Denton Holme, Upperby, Harraby and Belah.
The smoking ban, the price of a pint, rents and the impact of the financial crisis are all said to have had an impact on pubs.
