21/07/2021 - Asset of Community Value Decision: Royal British Legion, Crowland ref: 816    Recommendations Approved

Asset of Community Value Decision

Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Communities & Facilities

Decision published: 21/07/2021

Effective from: 29/07/2021

Decision:

a)    That the building be not listed for the following reasons:

 

it is considered that the future test has not been met - the nominator wishes to purchase the building but whilst the poor financial viability of an existing business is not generally sufficient to resist listing, and whilst there is no requirement for a full business plan to be submitted in order for a nomination to succeed, the nomination should show that the prospect is more than "mere speculation".  This is a building of significant size which will require significant maintenance and repair.  According to the website the nominator does not currently own any land or buildings and whilst there are currently 5 trustees and 55 volunteers there is no evidence that any of those trustees and volunteers has the relevant experience to undertake such a project.  There is also currently insufficient evidence that the nominator could fund the purchase and arising from this, in addition to the fact that the nominator did not approach the owner when the property was recently marketed, it is felt that this test has not been met.

 

b)     That the building be added to the Council’s register of unsuccessful nominations.
