New licence granted 10th September 1845

~

Being within the Norwich Corporation clearance area, the renewal of licence was opposed at the Sessions held Tuesday 10th March 1937.
The Chief Constable reported that there were 17 fully licensed houses within the Magdalen Street and Barrack street area, within 200 yards of the PLASTERERS ARMS... which in turn was `within a short distance of the BEEHIVE.' The accommodation was not satisfactory and in his opinion, the house was not required to meet the needs of the neighbourhood.
Messrs. Lacons had planned in July 1934 to reconstruct the premises and their enquiries had determined in October 1935, that there were no road widening schemes that would effect the site. They had been informed by the Corporation on 6th February 1936 that it would be unwise to continue with their redevelopment scheme. In 1925 the Chief Constable had objected to licence renewal and as a consequence, Messrs. Lacons had spent between £350 and £400 on alterations and improvement.
Messrs. Lacons reported that since the Compensation Act,  more licenses in Norwich had been taken away from them than any other brewer.
The licensee Sydney Burden said that in spite of the slum clearances, trade had increased within the last twelve months. The house had given him a good living for the past eight years.

Licence provisionally refused and referred to Compensation.
