Decision:

Resolved:

 

                   i.        The Murton Arms (formerly The Bay Horse), Main

Street, Murton, York, was listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

 

                  ii.        The New Earswick & District Indoor Bowls Club, Huntington Road, Huntington, York, was listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

 

Reason:     To ensure the Council meets its legislative requirements of the Localism Act 2011 and promotes community access to community facilities.

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report that sought approval for The Murton Arms and The New Earswick & District Indoor Bowls Club to be listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV). It was outlined that the purpose behind the request to be relisted was to ensure that property (land and building) assets which were currently being used to the benefit of the local communities, were not disposed of without the local community being given a fair opportunity to bid for these assets when they are put on the open market.

 

Discussion took place around the process for applying for a ACV, as well as, the criteria that needed to be meet for an ACV application. It was noted that the 5 year restriction would not apply when applying for an ACV, if an ACV had previously been approved and then withdrawn. The ability to apply for compensation for additional costs during the listing were also noted.

 

It was confirmed that different ownership of The Murton Arms and the car park formally part of the pub would not require separate application. In relation to The New Earswick & District Indoor Bowls Club officers confirmed that the applicant was not required to prove the bowls club’s financial sustainability, only that it had the capability to be used by the community.

 

Resolved:

 

                   i.        The Murton Arms (formerly The Bay Horse), Main

Street, Murton, York, was listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

 

                  ii.        The New Earswick & District Indoor Bowls Club, Huntington Road, Huntington, York, was listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

 

Reason:     To ensure the Council meets its legislative requirements of the Localism Act 2011 and promotes community access to community facilities.
