Badge of Honour for Threatened Pubs

News: August 2015

Communities Pubs minister Marcus Jones has presented the first 'Badge of Honour' to a pub listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

This Pub MattersAn ACV may be applied to a pub if local people join together and decide to list the establishment as being of value to the community.

The status then ensures that the pub has added protection under planning laws. More than 800 pubs have been awarded ACV status to date.

The first new badge – declaring 'This Pub Matters' – was presented to Tina Massie of The Red Lion pub, Knotty Green, Buckinghamshire, at CAMRA's Great British Beer Festival.

The initiative is a joint venture between the Campaign for Real Ale and the Department for Communities & Local Government.
