We got listed!

We are thrilled to hear that the Council has made the decision to place Hough End Hall on the Register of Assets of Community Value. So, once the owners, (West Register, part of RBS) tell the council they are wanting to dispose of the land, and we confirm we want to bid, we should get 6 months during which they cannot conclude a sale to anyone else. The legislation lets them continue negotiating with someone else but not conclude a sale.

We will need to make sure we make a good bid!

Thanks to all who supported the nomination, especially Chorlton Civic Society.

good news – the nomination of the community asset is going ahead

We have nominated Hough End Hall to be put on the register of Community Assets. We have just heard that Manchester City Council considers the nomination valid. Thanks to the Chorlton Civic Society for making the nomination. Now there is an 8 week decision making, period.  This is an important step: if the Hall eventually gets put on the Register, there will be a 6 month moratorium during which the owners of the Hall cannot sell it to anyone else whilst the community prepoares a bid. So, watch this space for more news.
