Hope for The White Horse

click image to enlarge
As The White Horse in Milford on Sea stands looking unloved and forlorn - South Hants CAMRA, the local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, are currently submitting an ACV application.

An AVC is an 'Asset of Community Value' and provides a vehicle to block pubs from from being converted to retail or other uses without the submission of a planning application. The Localism Act 2011's Community Right to Bid allows community groups to nominate land and buildings as ACVs to allow them more control over their future use.

The White Horse application is not so easy to deal with as the pub has already closed, but a show of support from the 'locals' will go a long way to help. 

To assist in the application for The White Horse, South Hants CAMRA need support for the ACV application by obtaining at least 21 local signatures and addresses. It would also be particularly useful for any 'groups' that used the pub to also complete a form. No other commitment is involved other than signature.

Forms can be collected from Mark at The Village News. (Opposite the bottom of the village green.) Please take the time to support the effort to save an important part of the village heritage.

This process has already been utilised by  South Hants CAMRA to request listing of The Red Lion in Milford on Sea and an ACV application is currently being considered by NFDC.
