Pubs Protected In Law Change

Pubs Protected In Law Change

After many years of CAMRA campaigning, English pubs can no longer be converted or demolished without planning permission.

Colin Valentine, CAMRA National Chairman, said, “After years of campaigning led by CAMRA’s membership, the Government has today announced a historic change in the law to protect all English pubs in the planning system.”

Previously, a loophole enabled developers to make fundamental changes to pubs at will. New law will not prevent the development of pubs but allows the pub’s community an opportunity to express their opinions as part of the planning application process.

In an email to CAMRA members, Valentine continued, “Although this change comes too late for the thousands of pubs already lost, it will be crucial to supporting all the great pubs which remain for generations to come.

“This is a huge win for pub goers and consumers and helps secure a thriving pub industry for all to enjoy.”

CAMRA Chief Executive, Tim Page, said, “This change delivers real and robust protection to valued community pubs, which previously have relied on communities going through the bureaucratic process of securing Asset of Community Value (ACV) listings, or local authorities choosing to use complex and obscure Article 4 directions.

“We will work with the Government to ensure these measures are implemented as soon as possible to allow pubs across England to start benefiting from the protection of the planning system.”

2017 Food & Drink Trends

2017 Food & Drink Trends

Low and No 

Non-alcoholic and low alcohol drinks will grow in popularity over the next 12 months, according to BBC Good Food. Many people are expected to choose cold-pressed juices, charcoal-activated water and turmeric shots ahead of alcoholic beverages.

Pasta Sell By Date

We predicted the rise of pasta alternatives at the start of 2016, but this trend has taken some time to get off the ground. For 2017, Whole Foods Market believe that vegetable substitutes will finally replace conventional pasta.

A Latte Different Uses 

The Food Network claim that coffee will move from cup to plate as a key food flavour. Alongside cakes, coffee is expected to feature more frequently in main courses and cocktails too.


40% of millennials have posted food snaps on their social media accounts, according to the 2016 BBC Good Food Nation Survey. Restaurants, cafés and bars are following suit by using hashtags such as ‘#foodstagram’ to share images of their culinary creations. In 2017, we expect food to become even more photogenic as this trend continues to flourish.

Tofu 4 U 

Although the normalisation of edible insects is still on the horizon, plant based proteins are expected to gain popularity as a replacement for meat. Treehugger claim that tofu, tempeh and hemp proteins will be growing trends this year.

War of the Waste

Food waste will be tackled in 2017, according to Conde Nast Traveller. After a United Nations report revealed that a third of food intended for eating gets tossed each year, operators are keen to save money and improve efficiency in their kitchens.

Staff Development 

The staff recruitment crisis became a controversial topic in 2016. This year, however, HospitalityGEM are predicating a shift towards staff retention rather than recruitment. By investing in talented staff and providing them with opportunities to progress and develop, HospitalityGEM believe both guests and operators will benefit.
