Sheffield City Council has awarded an Asset of Community Value status to the Cherry Tree pub on Carter Knowle Avenue.
Labour councillors have been working with the local community to make sure that the pub is awarded an asset of community status (ACV).
There was overwhelming support for retaining the Cherry Tree pub in the community and the ACV status will make finding a buyer to re-open the pub much more likely. Residents had raised concerns that if the building did not get an ACV status it was likely that the once very popular local pub would be lost forever. Concerns were also raised that any potential convenience store or supermarket put in its place would have a negative impact on the local and independent businesses nearby.
After careful consideration Labour councillors have determined that every effort should be made to help retain the Cherry Tree pub and for a buyer and return it to its former glories - and there is clearly a large appetite in the community for this.
The decision to award the Cherry Tree pub the ACV is a continuation of significant work undertaken by Labour councillors to preserve our city's heritage and to retain community hubs, which pubs can play such a crucial role in.
In the last few months Sheffield has retained the coveted purple flag status for our city centre - meaning that Sheffield's city centre is a safe and exciting night out - and has been called the "World's Capital of Real Ale" by the New York Times. In March the city also celebrated the annual Sheffield Beer Week.
Local ward councillor Mohammad Maroof said:
"This is a result I have been working hard for and I am delighted the council have taken this decision. I received queries and concerns from constituents and I am thrilled that the council have agreed with the arguments I put forward on their behalf.
"As we saw with the recent Sheffield Beer Week, our Labour council are determined to market Sheffield's pubs to the rest of the country, but all of the promotion means nothing unless efforts are made to not only preserve heritage pubs but make sure that they have a future as well. And this is exactly what our Labour council is doing".
