LETTER: Fenland councillors should apply ‘common sense’ over Manea pub

If his pub had been owned by a national company in the middle of a thriving village and he wanted to change it to a convenience store then no problem.

But stuck two miles out of a Fenland village at the end of a road only suitable for agricultural vehicles he has to prove over and over that it is not viable.

If anyone should prove viability it is the national company who make pubs unprofitable by charging inappropriate rents to tenants.

Come on councillors apply some common sense here and do the right thing.
