List the Boleyn Tavern as an Asset of Community Value

List the Boleyn Tavern as an Asset of Community Value

List the Boleyn Tavern as an Asset of Community Value to afford it an extra measure of protection from development and closure.

Why is this important?

CAMRA calls the Boleyn “one of the more spectacular late-Victorian pubs in London” and its amazing interior is largely intact- an absolute rarity.

More importantly, it serves a vital community function in a part of London where very few pubs remain.

There is concern that the departure of West Ham football club from the nearby Boleyn ground, and the subsequent development of the ground for housing might impact the pub’s future. This petition is an attempt to afford some extra protection to a unique part of London’s history and a vital community asset.
