Campaign Advert

Another application has been lodged with Flintshire’s planning department which, if successful will see the historic Boar’s Head pub in Ewloe flattened and land used to build houses and apartments.

The 17th-century pub on Holywell Road in Ewloe closed its doors to the public for the last time in 2002, it was threatened with demolition last year as plans submitted by developers in May 2014 included levelling the pub to make way for new flats.

Former councillor and heritage campaigner Klaus Armstrong-Braun had attempted to get listed status for the former staging post as a site of national importance, it is believed to be the oldest building in Ewloe and documents show the building was in use as early as 1602.

Hawarden Community Council also made a formal objection to its demolition, they asked Flintshire Council planners to ensure the building was retained in any future development plans.

The outline application submitted this week proposes to ‘replace’ the pub, structural consultants have concluded it’s not feasible to retain any part of the existing building due to age and condition, the pub will be replaced by a ‘mix of two story properties’ – from the plans it looks to be around 12 in number.
