Assets of Community Value – In-House Training

This course will be of use to any local authority lawyers or other employees of local authorities working in this area.

The Localism Act 2011 has lead to a flood of amenities and buildings such as village halls, community centres, village shops, and pubs being listed, but very few listed assets have in fact been purchased by community groups or charities.

That said, it is important for local authority lawyers and those acting on behalf of commercial and residential developers, to understand the duty being imposed on local authorities in England and Wales to maintain a list of assets of community value, and a system designed to enable communities to be given the opportunity to purchase them when they come up for sale.

For a number of practitioners this area of law may not be commonly encountered but it is important to understand the regime and the impact on property assets that are listed or that could be listed as assets of community value.

The course will examine:

  • Key features of the Localism Act 2011 and the rights and powers of individuals and communities
  • Qualifying Assets and Criteria
  • Excluded Land
  • Community rights
  • Parties with the power to nominate Assets of Community Value
  • The duty of the local authority to “list”
  • The concept of a Moratorium and the two different moratorium periods
  • Appeals by landowners against listing
  • The use of judicial review
  • The issue of compensation
  • A Review of case law
