Closure of Castle Pub Car Park 13 June 2024

Statement from Shaw-cum-Donnington Parish Council regarding the Closure of the Castle Pub Car Park beside Donnington recreation ground on Oxford Road.

We are very sad to see that the Landlord of the Castle Pub has decided to close the car park next to Donnington Recreation Ground on the Oxford Road, with effect from 13th June 2024

The landlord informed us he has had many instances of inconsiderate usage of the car park over the last year and no longer considers it viable economically to keep it open for those who are not patrons of the pub. He will also be ensuring that only patrons of the Castle Pub are able to park in the carpark to the left of the building.

The car park that has been closed belongs to the Castle Pub and is not Parish Council land.

The Parish Council are hoping to work with the Landlord in finding a satisfactory resolution to this situation as soon as possible.
