Determination of applications for Asset of Community Value Applications update to the Employee Scheme of Delegations


This report will seek 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.


Access to Information

The report together with any other documents being considered (unless they contain exempt information) will be available for inspection 5 clear days before the decision is taken by the Cabinet. Copies are available on the Council's website or requested from Democratic Services Medway Council, Gun Wharf, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4TR or email If you wish to submit information to the Cabinet about the item please also contact Democratic Services.  


It is noted that the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements)(Meetings and Access to Information)(England) Regulations 2012 requires 28 clear days’ notice of the intention to make a key decision.


On this occasion it has not been possible to provide this 28 clear days’ notice and therefore Section 10 (General Exception) of the above regulations have been complied with. It was not possible to include this report on the Forward Plan with 28 days’ notice because since the publication of the last version of the Forward Plan, an application was submitted which requires determination by the Council within an eight week period and has triggered the need for these delegations to be in place. This report therefore needs to be considered at the next available Cabinet meeting.
