What happens next?

Nominations will be assessed within eight weeks of receipt. We will check each nomination form to ensure it is being made by an eligible community interest group. Then if the property is considered to 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.

You will be informed that the property has been listed and the date in five years' time when it will be removed from the list. After this date you will need to submit a new nomination.

If we decide to list a property the 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.

Unsuccessful nominations

Should a nomination be ineligible we will notify the nominee and provide an explanation as to why it was unsuccessful. The property will then be added to a list of 'unsuccessfully nominated properties' and will remain on the list for five years.

There is no appeal or review process for unsuccessful nominations.
