Determination of Applications for Asset of Community Value Applications Update to the Employee Scheme of Delegations
The Cabinet accepted this report as urgent to enable consideration of the matter at the earliest opportunity. This was because an application had been submitted requiring determination by the Council within an eight week period and this had triggered the need for the delegations to be in place.
This report sought Cabinet approval to update the Employee Scheme of Delegations to clarify the position in relation to applications for designations of Asset of Community Value (‘ACV’) status.
The Cabinet agreed to delegate authority to the Director of Place and Deputy Chief Executive to, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Resources, determine applications for Asset of Community Value Status and to maintain the registers as required by the Localism Act 2011.
The Council has a statutory duty to maintain the registers of ACVs and determine applications made by eligible bodies it is important that this is carried out within the statutory timescales and therefore it is appropriate to confirm the delegation.
