When the Council announced it's SHAs (special housing areas) in March the Kings Arms site was included, causing some consternation among music fans.
At that time, Russell Brown at Public Address reported that ' an apparently knowledgeable source says: "Maureen has no intention to sell at this point. The council can’t do sh*t as she owns the land outright … Maureen’s furious at the council."
Gordon was the one who registered it with Council after being made aware of Council deadlines by agents, according to this story on Newshub.
Gordon told Newshub ""You never say never, because some things could change direction and you're put in that position. But we're not willingly going out there and trying to sell the Kings Arms - at all."
