Commercial Enterprise Cabinet Member – Minutes 26 October 2016

9              (9)  ASSETS OF COMMUNITY VALUE – NOMINATIONS REGISTER UPDATE – The Director of Places submitted a report updating the Cabinet Member on the progression of the Community Right to Bid process in North Lincolnshire, and considering nominations received by the council to list various properties in South Ferriby as Assets of Community Value.

The council had received nominations from South Ferriby Parish Council proposing that the following properties located in South Ferriby were listed as Assets of Community Value:

·                     Sluice Road Allotments,
·                     The Hope and Anchor Public House,
·                     The Post Office and Stores, and
·                     Cemex Bowls Club,

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.

The responsibility for deciding whether to list a building or land as an Asset of Community Value was delegated to council officers, subject to consultation with the Cabinet Member.

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

Resolved – (a) That the report be noted, and (b) that the proposals for the following properties be listed as Assets of Community Value be supported:

·                     Sluice Road Allotments, South Ferriby
·                     The Hope and Anchor Public House, South Ferriby
·                     Cemex South Ferriby Bowls Club, and
·                     Post Office and Stores, Sluice Road, South Ferriby.
