Assets Of COMMUNITY VALUE

Assets of Community Value (ACV) form a part of the Community Right to Bid. It acts as the first stage in identifying and nominating buildings or other assets such as land that have a main use or purpose of furthering the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community, and could do so into the future.

Once listed as Assets of Community Value with the local authority, the local community will be informed if they are listed for sale within the five year listing period. The community can then enact the Community Right to Bid, which gives them a moratorium period of six months to determine if they can raise the finance to purchase the asset.

The Horwich Neighbourhood Plan is compiling a list of Assets of Community Value in the town.

As part of this process the Horwich RMI Club was suggested. Due to its key role, this was forwarded to Horwich Town Council to apply to list with Bolton Council, rather than wait for the Neighbourhood Plan to complete.

We will post more details of what Assets of Community Value are going forward. If you would like to suggest a building or open space to list, please get in touch.

PLANNING HAS TENDED TO EXCLUDE, RATHER THAN TO INCLUDE PEOPLE & COMMUNITIES

WE ARE ALLOWING PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES BACK INTO PLANNING.
