Dear Mr Webb 
 
Thank you for your information request, reference number 5422_1314.
 
I wish to confirm that North East Lincolnshire Council holds the following
information.
 
1) List of Assets of Community Value
No assets listed.
 
2) List of Nominated and Unsuccessful Nominated Assets
No Nominated and Unsuccessful Nominated Assets received
 
3) Community Right to Bid Nomination Form
The form will be available to download from our website shortly.  Copy
attached.
 
 
 
4) Assets of Community Value Nomination Guide
Guidance attached
 
 
5) Evaluation Criteria for Assets of Community Value
Once we have received the completed form we will consider and check the
eligibility of the nomination and if we feel the property does have
community value it will be added to the ‘list of assets of community
value’.  Assets will remain on the list for five years and a land charge
will be registered against the property.  We aim to assess nominations
within eight weeks of receipt.  The flowchart attached within the guidance
document details the steps the Council will go through when assessing an
application.
 
You will be advised that the property has been listed and the date in five
years’ time when it will be removed.  It is important you note the date as
there will be no further contact with you unless the property owner
decides to sell.  When the five years have expired you can submit a new
nomination.
 
If we decide to list a property the property owner can ask for a review
and there will be a process for an appeal to an independent body.  Further
guidance will be provided in the letter to the property owner.
 
We will notify the nominee should the nomination be ineligible and provide
an explanation as to why it was unsuccessful.  In such circumstances the
property will be added to the list of ‘land nominated by unsuccessful
community nominations’ and will remain on the list for five years.  There
is no appeal or review process for unsuccessful nominations.
 
6) Community Asset Transfer Policy
The Council has developed a local approach to Community Asset Transfers
which can be found using this link (page 24):

If you are unhappy with the response you have received, you have the right
to request an internal review by the Council. If following this you are
still dissatisfied you may contact the Office of the Information
Commissioner. If you wish to request an internal review, please contact me
and I will make the necessary arrangements.
 
Yours sincerely
