Eligible local organisations and groups, including town and parish councils, may nominate a building or parcels of land to be listed as an Asset of Community Value (an ACV) to help preserve it for the benefit of the community.
Powers set out in the Localism Act 2011 are useful to prevent important local assets, such as pubs, community centres, parks etc. from being redeveloped for other purposes such as for private housing.
The ACV regime operates by allowing local groups to bid for the listed asset when it is offered on the open market for sale so that it can continue to be used for the benefit of the community.
If you wish to nominate a building or parcel of land as an ACV you should refer to the Guidance Notes and the DCLG Community Right to Bid: Non-Statutory advice note for local authorities.
The Council reserves the right to reject repeated applications for the same building or parcel of land unless new evidence supporting any subsequent application is provided.
If your nomination is successful, the asset will be added to the list of AVCs in the document below.
If you require any further information, please email the Legal services team.
