BBPA calls on election candidates to support local pubs 

The call comes as over 800 pubs permanently closed in the past two years due to prolonged periods of closure and rising overheads

The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) is calling on local candidates to back calls for fairer business rates and protect their local pubs ahead of next week’s election. 

The association said that with rates collected by local authorities, one of the “single biggest ways” councillors could help save pubs from closure would be to call for fairer business rates to help lessen the financial pressures pubs are facing.
