Another Pub Closure to Make Way for New Homes

Posted on 15 February, 2016 by Chris Grigorovsky

The pub sector has taken another hit this week as regeneration specialists, Helm Construction, announced the former Raglan pub in Weston-Super-Mare is to be converted into much needed new homes.

Another Pub Closes to Make Way for New Homes

Work has already commenced on the Upper Church Road site which will have five new homes built and cost the region £750,000.

Managing director, Paul Evans, commented: “The contract is with a previous client and highlights Helm’s strong relationships with past customers. The work involves the conversion of the pub premises and associated manager’s accommodation into four one-bed and one two-bedroom flats.”

The Raglan closed in 2011 after a fire and remained derelict ever since.

We recently looked into the decline of the pub sector, where it was found that 29 pubs are being closed every week.
