Land asset nomination

  • Address - National Rail Land Coal Yard Land for Guild Tram, PR1 6QB
  • Ward - St Matthews
  • Date nomination received - 
  • Date of decision - 12 April 2019
  • Decision - Rejected
  • Reason for decision - Having considered in detail the nomination together with representations made by Council officers and other parties, a decision was taken not to list the asset. It was felt that the nomination failed to meet the legislative criteria as set out in Section 88 of the Localism Act 2011 and the asset of community value (England) Regulations 2012. It was felt that the land in  question did not have a track record of being used for local, social wellbeing or community purposes. The applicant did mention a potential use in connection with a proposed tramline, but no detail was provided as to what this might be or how it might be achieved or funded. Officers were also guided by Schedule 1 of the Regulations which make it clear that operational land, as defined in section 263 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, cannot be listed. The land which is the subject of the applicant's nomination is such land and consequently it cannot be listed as land of community value.

  • Decision - Accepted (de-listed 17 December 2018, as it no longer met the threshold required in the legislation)
  • Reason for decision - The Council had received an application for the listing of the Boars Head as an asset of community value. Applying the tests set out in the relevant legislation the council accepted the request for listing. This was because, based on the evidence provided, it was recognised that the Boars Head had in the past been used as an asset to further the community's well -being and social interests and that it had the potential to do so in the future.
