Saving Your Local Pub
A comprehensive toolkit for campaigners covering saving your local pub.
The Pubs Code Adjudicator, Paul Newby, was invited to speak to the CAMRA National Executive and Regional Directors in Grantham on 16 November 2019.
The Adjudicator was not able to answer all of the questions submitted on the day, and therefore promised to take these away and to reply to them in writing. The PCA subsequently published this Q&A for the benefit of all its stakeholders.
For many years one of CAMRA’s stated objectives has been to support community pubs. CAMRA’s view is that “all pubs are community pubs to some degree but some pubs serve their community better than others”. This document provides further explanation and examples of features or services that great community pubs may provide.
In recent years, large numbers of pubs have been restored and many created in buildings previously used for something else. CAMRA is recording the best of these pubs and highlighting them for all to enjoy. The project identifies and promotes interiors of outstanding architectural or design quality in pubs that have been converted or restored. Quality can derive either directly from the previous incarnation of the building or from the manner in which the interior has been adapted and fitted out for pub use or both, delivering an authentic pub experience. The purpose is to raise awareness of examples of outstanding pub conversions and restorations, thus stimulating interest in visiting and enjoying these pubs. CAMRA aims to inspire pub owners and others to pursue excellence when converting or restoring buildings for pub use, thereby establishing standards against which future conversions and restorations can be judged. CAMRA wants this effort to help protect the identified pubs. CAMRA also runs a competition, the Pub Design Awards, to recognise the best in new and refurbished pub design each year. This includes newly built pubs; the paucity of awards in this category affirms how few new builds have significant design merit but those that do are worthy of celebration.
We welcome your feedback. If you have comments on pubs listed or want to nominate others, please do so saying why and send to: email@example.com
CAMRA’s submission to the Treasury Committee Business Rates Inquiry (April 2019)
A sample questionnaire that can be used by a community group looking to take a pub into Community Ownership. Designed to be used with the local community level to gauge levels of support for a buyout, and what the community would want the pub to provide in terms of services.
