Save The Hop from demolition

The Hop (historically named Veevers Arms, c. 1872) stopped serving in November this year and was bought by Blackpool Council with public funds for £264,000. The Hop is a locally listed building due to its local architectural and historic interest.

The council plans “to seek a suitable temporary use

or if not possible to demolish the Hop and create temporary parking and/or site compound, at a cost of £120,000.”

In August 2009 the Architectural History Project was commissioned by Blackpool Council to consult on Blackpool heritage, and recommended that buildings of historic merit should be taken into account in the Talbot regeneration. The full report is here: https://www.blackpool.gov.uk/Residents/Planning-environment-and-community/Documents/EB021-Blackpool-Heritage-Characterisation-Studies.pdf.

Blackpool has already seen the loss of many beautiful and historic buildings, and is set to lose another.

Join and share this event to raise the profile of Blackpool's heritage and to try to save another building that will otherwise be lost forever.
