Minutes:

The Mayor was addressed by Councillor Liam Curran, the

Chair of the Sustainable Development Committee, who

welcomed general moves to protect pubs but asked if

consideration could be given to an en masse listing of all

Victorian pubs which he believed would mirror a UNESCO

move to create a World Heritage site of all similar London

pubs.

 

In response, the Head of Planning explained the detailed

evidential and assessment process which preceded listing

and said given the amount of work involved, a phased

approach had been adopted. Councillor Curran said he

would see if an independent assessor from CAMRA could

give free assistance to the department to help speed the

process.
