I took a look at the item on the Southwark council website about registering a community asset but it seemed to be only groups that could make the nomination. Have I misunderstood?
You mention a petition - can anyone share a link please?

Personally I think that, given that there has been an inn named The Elephant and Castle for a very long time (centuries, a fact that most historians agree is why the Newington area received its E&C moniker), there should still be a public house of the same name.
But please: let it be a good pub, and not the squalid dive that has just lost its licence due to a punter being stabbed with a pen (reminds me of Scorsese's Casino).
