Another Community Victory in the Borough of Barnet - The Hendon Midland Hotel has been granted an Asset Of Community Value renewal

From the Midland Hotel Community Group

Dear Supporters


This morning, Barry Rawlings, the leader of the Council, considered the ACV nomination and APPROVED the Midland Hotel Pub to be listed as an ASSET OF COMMUNITY VALUE.

This is very great news as it means the pub has a layer of protection from demolition and any changes of use that may reduce its community status.

We would like to thank each and every one of you who wrote in with evidence of personal or community use of the pub. 
WIthout this written evidence, the ACV nomination would have failed no matter how many say they would like the pub to stay.

We would also like to thank those who showed their support by signing the petition that was started by a local resident and those who lobbied their councillors and other local politicians.

The future: there might be an appeal by the owner against the ACV decision or planning applications if the owner does not sell the pub

We will continue to keep an eye out for any developments.
We hope we can count on you again should the needs arise.

Have a very good Christmas and New Year.
