When organisations nominate assets to be included on the List of Assets of Community Value, if their nomination does not meet the required criteria, the asset is added to the list of unsuccessful nominations.

ACV002 03 October 2013 Howbury Friends Garden land Compton Place Residential Rear of 97-107 Compton Place, Erith Kent DA8 1RY 28 November 2013 Not eligible for listing - The Assets of Community Value (England) Regulations 2012 Regulation 3 Schedule 1.      
ACV004 07 May 2014 Greener Bexley Sidcup Police Station Other 87 Main Road Sidcup Kent DA14 6ND 30 June 2014 The property is vacant, so is not currently an Asset of Community Value. In the recent past, it was used by the Metropolitan Police as a local police station. In this use, public access to the property was limited to a very small part of the overall building. In this use, there is no evidence to support the assertion that the building furthered the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community. In addition, no substantive evidence on viability has been put forward to substantiate the claim that it is realistic to think that there can be a use of this asset that furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community within the next five years.      
ACV006 27 August 2014 Galeforce Productions Universal Ltd Crayford Day Centre Daycare centre / Residential care home 4-6 London Road Crayford Dartford DA1 4BH 16 September 2014 The property is vacant, so is not currently an Asset of Community Value. In the recent past, it was used by a Council contractor to provide a service to persons with mental health issues, a very limited section of the community. In this use access to the property was restricted to only parts of the overall building. This service has now been relocated and therefore the building is not required for this use. In this use, there is no evidence to support the assertion that the building furthered the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community. In addition, no substantive evidence on viability has been put forward to substantiate the claim that it is realistic to think that there can be a use of this asset that furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community within the next five years.      
ACV007 11 September 2014 Howbury Friends Howbury Centre Library Slade Green Road Erith Kent DA8 2HX 30 October 2014 It is considered that whilst in the past the use of the nominated property qualifies it as being of community value it is however considered not realistic to think that this use can continue given the contractual commitment that exists (and for which planning permission has been granted) to demolish the property and redevelop the land with new homes. In addition, the financial viability of continuing the community use has not been proven, particularly given that a new community facility has been provided for the residents of Slade Green in close proximity to the nominated property.      
ACV008 11 September 2014 Howbury Friends Slade Green Football Club Sports ground or facility Moat Lane Slade Green Erith DA8 2ND 29 October 2014 It is considered that the nominated property does not qualify as an Asset of Community Value as there have only been occasional use of it by the local community since Slade Green Football Club stopped using the ground over five years ago and there are other football pitches available for hire in the Slade Green area.      
ACV009 11 September 2014 Howbury Friends The Sportsman Club Other 35 Moat Lane Slade Green Erith DA8 2NG 29 October 2014 The nominated asset is a private members club and therefore there is only restricted community access. Whilst the property does have a function hall for hire this only forms part of the nominated asset and there are a number of other facilities available for hire in the Slade Green area such that the loss of this facility would not have an adverse impact on the local community.      
ACV057 11 December 2015 Bexley Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale Ye Olde Leather Bottle Other 131 Heron Hill Belvedere Dartford DA17 5HJ 15 February 2016 This former public house is no longer trading, but in the recent past, when it was open, it is considered that it did meet the criteria of an asset of community value. However, it is the Council's view that it is not realistic to think there could be a use (either the same use or another use) of the property within the next 5 years that would further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community. This is because the Council considers that it would not be financially viable to bring the property back into use as a public house (given the level of investment required relative to the capacity of the market place) and further it is unrealistic to think that there is an alternative community use where the necessary degree of viability could be achieved to ensure a successful outcome.      
ACV063 25 October 2016 Campaign for Real Ale Coach and Horses Public House Other 35 North Cray Road Bexley DA5 3NE 14 December 2016 The pub trades poorly. The vast majority of local residents and visitors prefer to frequent the five pubs and numerous restaurants more centrally located in Bexley Village, just a short distance away. This is likely to be due to the pub’s relatively inaccessible location, compared to the other establishments that are more centrally located. It is unrealistic to think that either the current use (or an alternative use) could continue to further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community as it is considered that the pub could not be made viable either by another publican or a community group running it. This is due to the property’s relatively isolated and inaccessible position on the edge of Bexley Village, the small size of the building/site limiting scope for improvements and competition from other more accessible establishments in close proximity. The CAMRA viability test has been run and it is considered that this demonstrates that it is not a viable public house going forward. In addition, the building does not lend itself to alternative community uses. There is a national decline in pub trade, which is bringing about many closures due to issues of viability. Pubs that are surviving often have a strong food offer or other features that attract good community use. The current landlord of this establishment has attempted a quality food offer in partnership with a skilled chef, but it is considered that due to the position of the property and the limited floor space available, this has not been financially viable and is due to close imminently.      
ACV065 01 November 2016 Pom Pom Community Forum Pom Pom Wood   Alford Road, Erith 13 December 2016 Not eligible for listing - The Assets of Community Value (England) Regulations 2012 Regulation 3 Schedule 1.      
ACV066 05 December 2016 Campaign for Real Ale The Duke Public House Other 322 Bexley Road Northumberland Heath Erith 26 January 2017 It is considered that this pub does not fulfil the criteria of an asset of community value as it is poorly supported by the local community at the current time and has a limited ‘offer’ to the community. The vast majority of local residents and visitors prefer to frequent the three pubs located in Northumberland Heath, just a short distance away. In addition, it is considered unrealistic to think that either the current use (or an alternative use) could continue to further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community as it is unlikely that the pub could be made viable either by another publican or a community group. This is due to the property’s relatively isolated and inaccessible position (directly adjacent to a roundabout), the lack of a car park, the small size of the building/site limiting scope for improvements and competition from other more accessible and attractive establishments in close proximity. The CAMRA viability test has been run and it is considered that this demonstrates that it is not a viable public house going forward. In addition, the building does not lend itself to alternative community uses. There is a national decline in pub trade, which is bringing about many closures due to issues of viability. Pubs that are surviving often have a strong food/community offer or other features that attract good community use. The current landlord of this establishment has attempted a food offer in the past, but this has not been successful.      
ACV068 11 April 2017 Howbury Friends Slade Green Football Club & Sportsman club & bar Sports ground or facility Moat Lane Slade Green Erith DA8 12 June 2017 These assets have both previously been nominated (as separate assets) and both applications were unsuccessful. It is considered that there has been no material change in circumstances since the assets were first nominated that would warrant the Council now believing that there is a current use or a use in the recent past, or it is realistic to think that there can be a future use that furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community.      
ACV072 27 December 2018 Bexley Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (only as sponsor, acting jointly with members of the Bexley Historic Society) The Coach House Public house 40 Watling Street, Bexleyheath, DA6 7QG 22 February 2019 It is unclear from the nomination the identity of the nominating body and therefore how it fulfils the criteria prescribed by legislation. There is also insufficient evidence that the body has a membership of 21 individuals.      
ACV073 10 October 2019 United Judo Former Slade Green Community Centre Community centre/hall Bridge Road, Erith, Kent, DA8 2HS 16 December 2019 The nominator has provided insufficient evidence of scheme funding and on-going viability for the Council to be confident that it is realistic to think that the property can be put to a community use in the next five years.
