Pubs Matter

So why can't we have a say?

CAMRA has launched a brand new campaign to demand better planning protection for pubs in England.
New figures show that pub closures have risen to 31 a week. It is time for Government to recognise that Pubs Matter. Please get involved today!
- Did you know pubs can be converted into other uses including small supermarket stores, estate agents and even pet shops without planning permission?
- Did you know two pubs a week are being converted to small supermarket stores?
- Did you know pubs can also be demolished without planning permission?
Enough is enough. All we are asking for is a simple change in planning law so a planning application is always required before a pub is demolished or converted into another use.
Please get involved with the campaign today.
