These guidance notes are to help you to complete the nomination form for registering an asset of community value.

The nomination form is split into three main sections which cover

  • Your organisation details
  • The asset you wish to nominate
  • Why you believe it adds to the social wellbeing and interest of your community.

Please try to answer all of the questions in as much detail as possible. We will use the information you provide to assess whether your nomination meets the requirements of the legislation and can be listed as an asset of community value.

Section A: About your Organisation

Section B: Information regarding the asset you wish to nominate

Section C: social wellbeing and social interest’s criteria

What happens next?

After receiving you application, the council will, within 8 weeks, make a decision on whether to accept or reject your nomination using the criteria set out within the Localism Act 2011. The council’s decision will be final, you do not have the right to appeal against this decision.

We will contact you direct if we have any questions or queries with your nomination. We are legally required to inform the asset owner and current occupants of your nomination. The owner(s) have the right to appeal against the decision to list their asset.
