The Executive Leader stated that he supported the applications in respect of the Melbourne Public House and the Holgate Allotments as they met the criteria required.  In respect of the Clementhorpe Malt House, he noted the strong feelings in the community regarding the property but was of the view that the necessary criteria had not been met to approve it as an Asset of Community Value as its previous usage had been for storage.
