One action which came out of the Council's consultation on the Parish Plan was for the Council to look at whether any local buildings or land should be registered as 'Assets of Community Value'.
Both private and public buildings and land can be registered as Assets of Community Value with the Council.
The designation means that if the owner decides to sell, the community can use the Community Right to Bid to obtain a 'pause' to the sale to give them the chance to develop a bid to buy it.
Local pubs, shops and football grounds are some examples of the kinds of buildings/ land which have been registered as Assets of Community Value.
If you have any suggestions of other buildings or land which you think it might be appropriate to apply to register please do contact Cllr Laura Coyle
More details of the scheme and how it is operated in West Berkshire can be found here West Berks Web Site
Many local residents suggested that the Bull pub in Streatley should be registered as an Asset of Community value, and the Parish Council intends to make an application to West Berkshire Council for the pub to be so registered
