    Minutes:

    The Chairman introduced the item which related to the Community Right to Bid: Templars Lawn Tennis Club, St Andrews Road, NW11 0PJ.

     

    The legal officer in attendance explained that there is no statutory definition of what local community means. The legislation is in its early stages and there are to date no cases through which the courts have provided guidance regarding the definition of local community.

     

    During the discussion the Committee decided to define local community as the Borough of Barnet and neighbouring boroughs.

     

    The Committee unanimously agreed this definition.

     

    Councillor McGuirk moved a motion to change the recommendation to read as:

     

    In the absence of the owner and the nominating group, the Committee assumed that the facilities of the tennis club are used to create a wider social benefit. The Committee based its decision on the evidence provided through the nomination which demonstrates the community use of the tennis club. Therefore the Committee decide to list the Templars Lawn Tennis Club as an Asset of Community Value and that is it added to the council’s Register of Assets of Community Value as a successful nomination

     

    The motion was seconded and became the substantive motion.

     

    The Committee unanimously agreed the recommendation and it was therefore agreed that:
