Nominate a community asset

What happens after nomination?

We will decide whether or not to list an asset within eight weeks of a nomination submission.

As part of the process we will take all practicable steps to notify the owner and lawful occupants that we are considering listing the property and the outcome of the nomination. Depending on our decisiont here will also be a process for review and appeal.

The organisation which originally nominated the asset will also be notified of the outcome, together with reasons if the nomination was unsuccessful. 

Successful nominations 

Assets that are considered to be of community value are added to the list of assets of community value.

Assets remain on the list for five years, and a land charge will be registered against the property.

When the five years have expired, an eligible community organisation can submit a new nomination.

The organisation which originally nominated the asset will be notified if the asset is subsequently removed from the list, following a review of the decision.

Unsuccessful nominations

If the nominated asset is not considered to be an asset of community value, or if the nomination was ineligible, we will provide an explanation of why it was unsuccessful to the organisation which made the nomination.

In such circumstances, the property will be added to the list of assets of community value as an unsuccessful nomination and will remain on the list for five years.
