Make the Queens Head an Asset of Community Value

This petition made change with 1,047 supporters!

The Queens Head in York Square has been a place of relaxation, celebration, commemoration and recreation for more than 150 years. We want Tower Hamlets to recognise its status as an Asset of Community Value under the Localism Act so that it cannot be redeveloped or converted.

Also, ACV registration should be taken into account when planning applications on the building are made and can be grounds for refusal where this would strip the building of its use or result in its demolition.

Pubs are widely recognised in the planning system as making a positive contribution to the residential conservation areas they sit in, both in terms of their visual appeal and the historic function they perform as meeting places for the communities they serve.

This fine Grade IIlisted building has served East End communities for generations and was visited by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother on two occasions, during the Blitz and again in 1987, where she poured a pint behind the bar.
