Save The Red Deer Pub
This petition is to save the Red Deer Pub from being turned into a Morrisons convienience store. Within 500 metres theres the One Stop Shop which is part of the Tesco family do we really need another Supermarket? There has been a Public House on this site for hundreds of years & after the Swan & Sugarloaf was turned into a Tesco Express in 2012 it deserves to be preserved as a pub for the use of the local community & for future generations.The building is a fine example of Victorian Architecture & has always been the focal point for any celebrations in this part of South Croydon. With its loss all the Small Businesses, Purley Oaks School, Local residents & the area as a whole will be affected by increased traffic, lack of parking & the sale of alcohol from 7am in an area where the council have already stated their policy is to restrict sales due to anti-social behaviour. During the recent Croydon Riots this part of the town remained mostly unaffected as the community didn't want the destruction of the town taking place here & The Red Deer is a cornerstone of this community which will suffer greatly with its loss.
