No Listing for the Vulcan

Despite the recent success in winning a three year lease for the Vulcan, there is inevitably some bad news. After careful consideration by the Minister for Heritage, Alun Ffred Jones, a decision has been made NOT to list the Vulcan. According to the Minster, the pub fails to meet the required listing criteria although he does acknowledge the importance of the Vulcan in Cardiff’s history and the ‘welcome element of diversity’ it brings to its surroundings.

On a positive note, Cadw will begin a review of its principles for the selection of listing this November and you can rest assured that the Petitions Committee are still working hard on the case.
