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.
In order to make sure your voice is heard on the future of your pubs, we need your MP to commit to:
* Speaking in support of the pub protection clause written into the Neighbourhood Planning Bill
* Voting against any amendment to the Bill which will reduce support for pubs
* Voting in support of the Neighbourhood Planning Bill
It is essential that the Bill passes through the House of Commons in order to secure a thriving pubs industry for all to enjoy.
