Asset of Community Value Nomination


(a)             That the building be not listed on the grounds that (i) the main building cannot, in the Council's opinion on the facts of the case, be listed separately from the outbuildings; and (ii) the building as a whole is a hotel and therefore exempt from listing; and


(b)             That the building be added to the Council’s register of unsuccessful nominations; and


(c)       That the Executive Director of Place be authorised to (i) validate or invalidate nominations as considered appropriate; and (ii) determine whether nominations are exempt from listing. 


Reasons for the decision:

Based on the information provided it is considered that the property is a hotel, rather than a public house, and that the property is therefore exempt from listing.

Alternative options considered:

·        To do nothing. This is not a viable option as the Council is required to determine the nomination in accordance with the Localism Act 2011.


·        To accept the nomination.  This is not considered appropriate as it is considered that the property is exempt from listing.
