Protection tools

If your local pub is under threat, you need to know what you can do about it…and fast!

You’ll probably need to use a combination of approaches in your campaign depending on the different directions the owner or developer takes. Don’t forget that they only have to win once but as campaigners, you need to win every battle!

Follow our links for easy-to-follow guides to the different measures you can ask your local Council put in place to safeguard your local for the benefit of the community now and in years to come.

Ps – we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we cannot recommend highly enough nominating your pub as an ACV!
