Peter Gane and Roger West outside the White Lion site, Cheriton.A plan from Peter Gane to get the District Council involved in redeveloping the former White Lion site was voted DOWN by Conservative & Independent Councillors.

The motion was backed by Lib Dem District Councillors Peter Gane, Gary Fuller and Tim Prater, but narrowly lost.

A pro-active Council would do anything it could to get this site back into use.

Sign our peition to up the pressure on the Council to take action.
