Asset of Community Value

Updated: Feb 2, 2020

In England, an Asset of Community Value (ACV) is land or property of importance to a local community, which is subject to additional protection from development under the Localism Act 2011. Voluntary and community organisations can nominate an asset to be included on their local authority's register of asset of community value. The listing of a property as an 'Asset of Community Value' lasts for five years.

The Golf Course is enjoyed by large numbers within the local community, not only in its capacity as a golf course but also as a place for walkers and nature lovers who enjoy the many public footpaths and those who use the clubhouse for a wide range of community functions such as business networking events, Bridge Club, Rotary club, weddings, funerals, birthday parties etc. Far from being an exclusive establishment, HHGC is open to the community and provides a range of valued amenities to the local community.

Our campaign "Stop HHGC Development" is pleased to announce that along with Lindfield Rural and Lindfield Parish Council we have succeeded in registering the golf course as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) with Mid Sussex District Council.

This decision was appealed by the company that owns the Golf Course and Fairfax. The appeal was unsuccessful and MSDC upheld their decision to keep The Golf Course designated as an ACV. However, unfortunately as of January 2020 we understand that a further appeal to the First Tier Tribunal may have been successful – we are awaiting formal confirmation.
