Tyneside & Northumberland CAMRA Branch
Our community pubs matter and deserve to be protected.
Weak planning laws mean pubs in England can be demolished or converted to mini supermarket stores, estate agents and pay-day loan stores without a planning application.
With two pubs being converted to mini supermarket stores every week, it is time to take a stand. We need to pile the pressure on Government to make a simple change to planning law so any demolition or change of use of a pub would need a planning application – giving local people the say they deserve in the future of their neighbourhoods.
