Sheffield ACV update

Sheffield and District CAMRA has piloted a national CAMRA scheme which encourages branches to nominate pubs in their area as Assets of Community Value (ACV). The scheme is now open to all CAMRA branches. Each branch can use this assistance to nominate up to ten pubs/month. Once a pub is ACV listed, planning permission is required for any change of use or demolition

We have nominated eleven pubs, ten in Sheffield and one in the Derbyshire Dales. The pubs are a mix of heritage, suburban, city centre and rural. Currently only one Sheffield pub, the Castle (Bolsterstone) has ACV status. In our wider ‘district,’ the Angel (Spinkhill) and the Anglers Rest (Bamford) also have ACV status

CAMRA, nationally, completed the LA paperwork, checked ownership, obtained ground plans and paid the £6 fee. After checking the details and adding more information, we then submitted the completed documentation to the appropriate Local Authority. We now await their decisions. Once the Local Authority has ruled on these applications, we will review our position and may submit more pubs for ACV status.

Update – the Plough at Crosspool has now gained ACV status following a local campaign.
