Today the Forum launches a campaign to protect our local pubs – and we need your help!
Protecting our local amenities, such as pubs and community facilities, has been a strong theme throughout our consultation and is one of the Forum’s priorities. We are working with new legislation that gives greater protection to any pub of importance to the local community.
The new law means any pub listed as an “Asset of Community Value” has to get planning approval to be given another use. Furthermore, if a pub listed as an ACV is to be sold, the community can get a six-month moratorium to raise funds to buy it and keep it open as a pub.
We will ask Camden Council to list all 12 local pubs as ACVs. To make a strong case, we need to hear from you why your favourites are important to the local community.
The Old White Bear and The Magdala are already listed, which leaves us with 12 to nominate: The Duke of Hamilton, The Flask, The Freemasons Arms, The Garden Gate, The Holly Bush, The Horseshoe, King William IV, The Old Bull and Bush, The Wells, The Roebuck, The White Horse and The Rosslyn Arms – which we hope will re-open soon.
Please go to our Pubs page and give us your reasons why your local is important to you.
