"This will be the standard work on ACVs” (Property Law Journal)

"No practitioner in this area should be without it”” (Law Society Gazette)

A thoroughly researched, usefully presented and invaluable companion for anybody engaging with the law and practice of assets of community value” (Dr Ashley Bowes, General Editor, Journal of Planning and Environment Law)

Assets of community value are buildings or other land nominated under the Localism Act 2011 by a voluntary or community body with a local connection and listed by the local authority because their use is considered to further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community. They are given a number of different forms of protection.

This book provides guidance on the interpretation and application of the relevant provisions. It sets out both legal and practical guidance, drawing together in one place the relevant principles from the Act, the accompanying Regulations, other primary and secondary legislation, Government guidance, the case law and elsewhere.

It provides assistance to a number of different groups: to those who wish to nominate a building or other land for listing as an asset of community value, to landowners who may wish to resist the listing of their property, to local authorities who have to determine the nomination and resolve any disputes, and to the professionals who advise them.

The first book to deal in detail with this area of law, Assets of Community Value: Law and Practice:-

  • offers in-depth guidance, saving much time-consuming research
  • deals rigorously with the relevant legal principles, drawing on other areas of law to offer suggested answers to many unresolved questions
  • provides practical guidance, firmly rooted in legal principle, for how to deal with many of the issues which arise, some of which involve difficult points of law and interpretation
  • addresses in detail the ever-increasing case law of the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal in this area.
