The Committee has delegated power to carry out this action, and the nominations have been submitted to the District Council for listing as Assets of Community Value, under Part 5 Chapter 3 of the Localism Act 2011.
As the action has already been carried out there's no need to contribute to the open public question time at the Town Council meeting at 6-30pm on Thursday 29th November, in the Millennium Chamber, but if you feel inclined to turn up and express your support it would encourage all Councillors in their defence of our Leisure Assets.
The Assets of Community Value measures in Part 5 Chapter 3 of the Localism Act 2011 provide for a local council to maintain a list of 'community assets'. Local community groups, Town or Parish Councils are able to nominate an asset, and, if the nomination is accepted by the local authority, it will be listed. Then when it is put up for sale the group will have to be informed and will be given time to prepare a bid. There is no community right to buy the asset, just to bid.
