ACV update

Sheffield CAMRA is taking part in a national CAMRA pilot scheme which is encouraging local branches to nominate pubs as Assets of Community Value (ACV). The branch has identified eleven local pubs : a mix of heritage, suburban, city centre and rural. With assistance from CAMRA HQ, the paperwork will be completed and submitted to the relevant Local Authority. We then await their decisions.

Pubs that are ACV-listed require planning permission to be demolished or for any other change of use. Currently only one Sheffield pub, the Castle (Bolsterstone) has ACV status. In addition, The Plough (Crosspool) has recently applied.
