District Councillor Signs King Willy's Death Warrant
The King William IV pub is no more – change of use from a public house to a residential property was granted to the owners at South Somerset District Council's planning meeting on 13th December 2017.
The planning meeting was chaired by Curry Rivel parish councillor Derek Yeomans, also District Councillor for Burrow Ward. Voting was even and Cllr Yeomans' failure to support the King Willy put the final nail in the coffin of our village pub. His vote did not reflect the views of the rest of the parish council who have opposed the change of use throughout.
