When is an Asset of Community Value?

An asset will be of community value if in our opinion:-

  • A recent or current main use of the land or building furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community, and
  • it is realistic to think that it can continue to be used (or it is realistic to think that there is a time in the next five years it will be used) in a way which furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community. This use does not have to be the same as the previous use.

Can anyone nominate an asset?

Bodies eligible to nominate an asset are as follows:

  • Parish Council
  • Neighbourhood forum (Section 61F Town and Country Planning Act 1990)
  • Unincorporated Body (a local voluntary or community group that is not incorporated but has at least 21 members who are locally registered to vote)
  • Community Interest Group - local voluntary or community group that is incorporated – this means it has a separate legal status from its members and is non profit distributing (e.g. Charity, Community Interest Company, Company Limited by Guarantee, Industrial Provident Society

How do I nominate an Asset?

A nomination must be in writing to Executive Director – Governance (Borough Solicitor) at Council Offices Dukinfield Town Hall King Street Dukinfield SK16 4LA

  1. a description of the nominated land including its proposed boundaries;
  2. a statement of all the information you know about -
    1. the names of current occupants of the land, and
    2. the names and current or last-known addresses of all those holding a freehold or leasehold estate in the land;
  3. your reasons for thinking why we should conclude that the land is of community value; and
  4. evidence that you are eligible to make a community nomination.

The attached nomination form can be used for this purpose. (0.09MB)

What happens once I make a community nomination?

Once we receive a community nomination we will consider it the earliest opportunity and no later than 8 weeks from receipt. If we need further information we will contact you.

Upon receipt of a nomination we will inform the owner(s) of the property (freehold and leasehold interests) and of any occupier that we are aware of who will be able to make representations to us.

If your nomination is accepted we will notify you in writing. The property will be added to the list of assets of community value. We will also notify the owner and any occupier (if different) that the property has been added to the list.

If your application is unsuccessful, we will write to you telling you why your nomination has not been accepted. Your nomination will be added to the list of unsuccessful community nominations.

What happens if land or buildings I own is listed?

If you receive notice from us in writing that your property has been added to the list, you have a right to ask the Council to review its decision. To do this you must make a request within 8 weeks of notification. We will review our decision. The outcome will be either:-

  1. We agree that the land should not have been added to the list and will remove it. We will write to you and the body who made the nomination with our reasons;
  2. We uphold our decision. If you still disagree with our decision you have a right of appeal to the First-Tier Tribunal Link to External Website.

What is the effect of land or buildings I own being listed?

If your property is included on the list of assets of community value, we will place a restriction on the title to your property to that effect.

If you wish to sell the property, you must notify us in writing of your intention and you cannot proceed with any disposal (subject to a few exceptions) without the Council having giving notice of your intentions and asking any community interest group whether they wish to be treated as a bidder.

A community interest group must be one of the following:-

  • a charity;
  • a company limited by guarantee which does not distribute any surplus it makes to its members;
  • an industrial and provident society which does not distribute any surplus it makes to its members; or
  • a community interest company

There will be an initial moratorium period of 6 weeks from when we serve notice during which time you cannot sell the property. If a community interest group declares an intention to be treated as a bidder a full moratorium period of 6 months will apply. If not, you may proceed with the sale of your property.

There is no requirement under the Localism Act 2011 to compel you to sell your property at less than market value or to a community interest company. The purpose of the legislation is to enable interested community interest groups the time and opportunity to prepare a bid.
