This report presents an application to list the Carlton Tavern Public House, 104 Acomb Road, York, as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

Additional documents:

Decision:

Resolved:  That the listing of the Carlton Tavern, 104 Acomb Road, York as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) be approved.

 

Reasons:   (i)      The application meets the required criteria.

 

(ii)      To ensure the Council meets its legislative requirements of the Localism Act 2011 and promotes community access to community facilities.

 

 

Minutes:

The Executive Leader considered a report which presented an application to list the Carlton Tavern Public House, 104 Acomb Road, York as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).  The nomination had been made by the Friends of the Carlton Tavern.

 

Officers drew the Executive Leader’s attention to the application that had been submitted and to the response from the freehold owner of the property, as included in the report. 

 

The Executive Member was informed that there was a proposal by the owners to sell the property to enable the site to be redeveloped as a care home.  The owners had stated that contracts had been agreed subject to planning consents.  The legal advice given was that the fact that contracts had been exchanged did not prevent a decision being made as to whether to list the Carlton Tavern as an ACV.  However, as it was under contract prior to a decision being taken, the provisions relating to the moratorium on a sale would not apply in this case.

 

The Executive Leader acknowledged that there was considerable interest in the application.  He noted the position in respect of the proposed sale of the property and the legal advice from officers regarding the situation.  The Executive Leader stated that he approved the recommendation to list the Carlton Tavern as an Asset of Community Value.

 

Resolved:  That the listing of the Carlton Tavern, 104 Acomb Road, York as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) be approved.

 

Reasons:   (i)      The application meets the required criteria.

 

(ii)      To ensure the Council meets its legislative requirements of the Localism Act 2011 and promotes community access to community facilities.
