Introduction
All community nominations for properties to be included on the List of Assets of Community Value must be made using this form and must satisfy the requirements of the Localism Act 2011 and the Assets of Community Value (England) Regulations 2012. For these purposes the term property means any qualifying land and / or buildings that are covered by the Regulations.

What is the definition of an asset of community value?

A building or land is of community value if, in the Council's opinion either:
  • The actual current main use of the building or land furthers the social interests or social wellbeing of the local community and it is realistic to think that there can continue to be a main use which will further the social or social wellbeing of the local community (although not necessarily in the same way).
  • In the recent past, the main use of the building or land furthers the social interests or social wellbeing of the local community and it is realistic to think that there can continue to be a main use which will further the social interests or social wellbeing of the local community (although not necessarily in the same way as before). In this context, social interests include cultural, recreational and sporting interests.
