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.
