Bid to make Local Pub an Asset of Community Value

Burpham residents have submitted an application to Guildford Borough Council to designate the Anchor and Horseshoes pub an Asset of Community Value (Oct 2018). The pub, the last in Burpham following the loss of the Green Man/Harvester Pub, is currently undergoing refurbishment. If the application for designation is successful it will allow local people to use Community Right to Bid powers to seek to purchase the pub if it were ever to come up for sale.

I support this bid as pubs form an important part of national and local life. According to Camra (Campaign for Real Ale) we are currently losing 18 pubs a week in Britain. I hope no action will ever be necessary, but it will be good to know local people have the opportunity to bid in the future if needed.
