Commercial Enterprise Cabinet Member – Minutes – 21 April 2017

The Community Right to Bid initiative allowed local community groups or town and parish councils to nominate buildings or land for listing as Assets of Community Value under the Community Right to Bid initiative.

The council had received a nomination from Flixborough Parish Council proposing that woodland at the rear of Ferry Road West was listed as an Asset of Community Value, the nomination was under consideration.

For a local group to successfully nominate an asset it would have to show that:

• it was based within the local authority area (or a neighbouring authority); and
• it was a group that was qualified to make a nomination.

Listed assets must either improve, or had recently improved, the community’s social wellbeing or social interest.  They must also be likely of doing so in the future.

The Nominations Register set out the progress made for each nomination from the date it was received through to the appeal deadline, as applicable.  The Nominations Register was appended to the report.

Resolved – That the latest information held within the Nominations Register be noted and approved.
