The Lincoln Imp granted Asset of Community Value Status

This does not mean the fight is over yet to keep the much loved Lincoln Imp up and running. There is much more to come along the way, as of yet no planning approval status has been released to the public on the original planning application.

I am pleased to announce that the Imp has been granted Asset of Community Value status!!!

Update from Landlady- Lorraine Briggs

What is Assets of Community Value (ACV)?
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.

What defines an Asset of Community Value?
An Asset of Community Value is defined as: A building or other land is an asset of community value if its main use has recently been or is presently used to further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community and could do so in the future. The Localism Act states that ‘social interests’ include cultural, recreational and sporting interests.

A big thank you to all the people that downloaded the letter template to object, I saw quite a few on them uploaded to the North Lincs planning application.

The consultation period for this application has now ended.
