They knocked it down because they thought they were just about to get a ban from knocking it down, increased the value of the land enormously.

If it had anything to do with the Council it would have caught fire first.

Unfortunately, the developer who bought it did not need planning permission to knock it down. As long as the building you own is not listed (and the Great Eastern wasn't - I tried to get it so!) you can knock it down whenever you like. YOU could demolish your own unlisted home tomorrow if you decided to do so. What you need planning permission for is what you build in its place. A totally mad system, if you ask me, but that is the way it works, unfortunately.

The developer knocked the pub down because he knew NFRAG were campaigning to keep it. Its a long story, covered elsewhere in threads on this site if you look.

Not quite - you need to give the council a "notice of demolition" at least 6 weeks in advance.
