AN HISTORIC building on a high street in a Moorlands town has been recommended to be approved as being registered as a community asset. The Friends of the Royal Oak recently lodged a community asset bid to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) for the Royal Oak Hotel located on Cheadle High Street, with the aim of making the venue somewhere that can be used by the public. In October 2019, David Gough Investments submitted proposals to build 12 one-bedroom flats and one two-bedroom flat at the former hospitality venue.
