Check out which West Berks Pubs have been nominated as an ACV on info.westberks.gov.
Even if your local isn't under any kind of obvious threat, it's well worth getting it registered as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).
Should a pub with ACV status ever be put up for sale then a six-month moratorium kicks in during which time the local community can submit a bid to buy it themselves. At worst, this buys campaigning time.
The Government has recently announced its intention to further protect ACV-listed pubs by requiring planning permission to be obtained before they can be demolished or converted to a shop, restaurant or office. Guidance on applying is at www.camra.org.uk/list-your-local-assets-of-community-value
