|As Section 88 of the Act indicates, in order for land to be considered of community value there must be a current non-ancillary use which furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community. A number of the reasons provided by the nominating body and listed above are ancillary to the main activity of the pub which is the sale of alcohol. There is no compelling evidence of substantial community use or wellbeing as required under the legislation and Government guidance. Where evidence has been provided they did not show that the community usage was any greater than what would be otherwise provided by 9 other public houses within 1 mile radius.

(iv) the whole of the nominated area cannot remain as an asset of community value once housing has been developed on part of the site.
