Community right to bid at Holgate gardens and Blacksmiths Arms

Officials are recommending, to a meeting taking place on 12th September, that two more amenities are added to the York Councils list of assets of community value.

As reported last month, applications were made to have Holgate Gardens (Cleveland Street) and the Blacksmiths Arms pub at Naburn listed.

Officials say both applications meet the governments criteria for listing.

In effect – if the assets were put up for sale during the next 3 years – this means that local groups would have 6 months to raise money to bid for the properties.
