Decision

 

RESOLVED – that

 

            The entry of the Prince of Wales, Foxfield onto South Lakeland District Council’s list of successful nominations as Assets of Community Value is agreed.

 

 Reason for Decision

 

The decision is in line with the Council’s Plan priorities of delivering a balanced community, working with communities to reduce isolation and loneliness.  The nomination states that there are no other community facilities within Foxfield where local services can be advertised, and local clubs are able to meet.  It states that the facilities that the asset offered contributed towards reducing isolation and reaching vulnerable people by providing a venue for a range of activities and gatherings.  It also states in the nomination that the asset’s facilities and the range of activities that it has, and could still offer, could be seen to improve the social wellbeing and interests of the local community.

 

Alternative Options considered and rejected

 

An alternative option would be to decline the nomination; however, this was rejected because the officers who assessed the nomination in this case feel that the criteria in the legislation have been met and that the listing is justified based on the information received.  Section 88 of the Localism Act states that it is a decision for the authority whether or not the criteria are met.
