Unsuccessful nominations

Asset Ward Decision date Nominated by Reason for not listing
Former shop, Main Road, Grindleford Hathersage & Eyam 18 June 2013 Grindleford Parish Council The property does not meet with the criteria set out in the Localism Act 2011, in that the District Council were not satisfied that the main use of the property is presently or has recently been used to further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community.
Woodland adjoining Broadwalk Recreation Area - Darley Dale Darley Dale 12 March 2015 Darley Dale Town Council Insufficient evidence that it meets the criteria set out in the Localism Act 2011.
Natwest Bank Building, Wirksworth Wirksworth 21 August 2015 Wirksworth Civic Society The main use of the building is currently as a commercial bank.  Any social wellbeing or social interests there may be from this activity are secondary to the main commercial use.
The Red Lion, Wirksworth Wirksworth 05 January 2016 Wirksworth Civic Society The property is currently used as a hotel and therefore is 'Land which is not of community value' in accordance with paragraph 2(b)(iii) of Schedule 1 of The Assets of Community Value (England) Regulations 2012.  The Council considered that the remainder of the premises was an ancillary use and that there was insufficient evidence that it furthered the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community.
Yew Tree Lodge, Ednaston            Brailsford 01 February 2016 Brailsford & Ednaston Parish Council This property is a separate building from The Yew Tree Inn consisting of 9 units of bed and breakfast accommodation and, according to the District Council's records, a manager's flat. Paragraph 2(b)(iii) of Schedule 1 of The Assets of Community Value (England) Regulations 2012 makes it clear that a building is a residence if it, or part of it, is used as a hotel or is otherwise principally used for letting or licensing accommodation to paying occupants. Whilst the business currently operated at the premises comprises both the public house and the bed and breakfast accommodation the buildings are separate and in the opinion of the listing officer it would be possible to operate the two premises separately. As such it is the view of the listing officer that The Lodge falls within this exemption as it is capable of operation as separate letting accommodation and this is its current principle use.
The Ostrich Inn (camping field, meadow, vegetable garden and other drive), Longford Brailsford 29 June 2016 Longford Parish Council The camping field is exempt and cannot be listed under the Regulations.  The meadow is separated from the camping field by Brailsford Brook, a fence and is not used by patrons of the pub.  It is therefore excluded as it does not further the wellbeing or social interests of the community.  The vegetable garden is separated from the public grounds of the Ostrich Inn by a fence and access is physically denied, it is excluded from the listing.  The other drive that extends beyond the access in to the public car park is access to the landlord's private accommodation, it is excluded from the listing.
Rutland Arms, Baslow Chatsworth 16 August 2016 Baslow SOS The property is no longer considered to be an Asset of Community Value.
Newholme Hospital, Bakewell Bakewell 14 December 2016 Newholme Hospital Support Group The property does not have a use that furthers the social wellbeing, or social interests of the community as set out in the Assets of Community Value (England) Regulation 2012.
The Rutland Arms, Baslow, DE45 1RP Chatsworth 05/01/2017   The property should not be listed as an asset of community value as there is no current use of the property that furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community and it is no longer realistic to think that there will be a time in the next 5 years when there could be a non-ancillary use of the property that would further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community.
Winster Ore House, Bank Top, Winster South Darley 29/01/2018 Winster Parish Council The property should not be listed as an asset of community value as there is no current use of the property that furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community.
