Cables Celebrate ‘Community Asset’ Status

By on Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Prescot CablesValerie Park, the home ground of Prescot Cables Football Club, has become the first property in Knowsley to be listed as a ‘community asset.’

This means that if the property’s owner ever decides to sell up, he must notify the club and give them six months to prepare a bid to buy it.

For Cables, Knowsley Council’s decision to grant the request means knowing their home ground can never be sold out from under them before they’ve been given a fair chance to buy it for themselves.

The listing doesn’t guarantee the final outcome, but it does give the club and the local community a fair crack of the whip in the event of any sale.

Under the Localism Act 2011, any town or parish council or community group can nominate a building or land as a community asset.
