Keep The Three Horseshoes in Fordham as an Asset of Community Value

Why is this important?

The ACV has been appealed.

The Local Community has campaigned successfully to list the Three Horseshoes in Fordam as an 'Asset of Community Value'. Pubs listed as Assets of Community Value are automatically granted additional planning protection. Without ACV status, a pub can be demolished or converted into several other uses without planning permission. The local group are therefore campaigning to see the pub remains listed to ensure it remains in the local community.

The ACV also gives the opportunity to bid to buy the pub should it come up for sale. There are around 50 community owned pubs already in the UK.

The pub was nominated by the CAMRA Branch - other nominating bodies can include: Parish Councils, groups of 21 local people or a Neighbourhood Forum.

How it will be delivered

I shall include a link in my letter of additional information to be considered at the appeal.

Fordham, Colchester
