Commercial Enterprise Cabinet Member – Minutes – 31 January 2017

15 (15)  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 seeking consideration of nominations that had been received for two properties.

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 the Scunthorpe & District CAMRA Branch proposing a property was listed as an Asset of Community Value, as follows:

• The Ironstone Wharf Public House, Gunness, Scunthorpe.

A nomination has also been received from Café INDIEpendent Ltd, proposing that 169-173 High Street, Scunthorpe be listed as an Asset of Community Value.

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 listing review, as applicable.  The Nominations Register was appended to the report.

Resolved – (a) That the latest information held within the Nominations Register be noted, and (b) that the proposal to list the following properties as Assets of Community Value be supported:

• The Ironstone Wharf Public House, Gunness, Scunthorpe
• Café INDIEpendent Ltd, 168-173 High Street, Scunthorpe.

The corresponding report of the following item (Minute 16 refers) contains exempt information as defined in Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).

16 (16) PROPERTY  TRANSACTION SCHEDULE – The Director of Places submitted a report for consideration, and where necessary, approval of a schedule containing the terms of all recently negotiated property transactions.

The schedule covered both operational and commercial property.

Resolved – That the schedule appended to the report be approved.
