Demolish The Trap

Support Fawdon & West Gosforth councillors' campaign to demolish The Trap

The former public house, The Trap, on Kenton Road has been derelict for many years and is in a very poor state. The remains of the building need to be demolished and the site made safe.

The former public house, ‘The Trap’, shut in 2009. Over the last decade and more, the building has fallen into a state of disrepair and become a target for vandalism and antisocial behaviour.

Councillors from Fawdon and West Gosforth Ward have been campaigning hard for many years for improvements to be made.

Residents are contacting us regularly, as the building continues to deteriorate. The saga has simply gone on for too long and we are now calling upon the City Council to enforce the demolition of the building.

Peter Lovatt, Rob Austin and John Hall, Fawdon and West Gosforth's Lib Dem councillors, are demanding action from the Council, not more words. 

Please support our campaign by signing the petition below.
