At midnight on 31 March 2019 the following councils ceased to exist and have amalgamated to become Dorset Council:
- East Dorset District Council
- North Dorset District Council
- Purbeck District
- West Dorset District Council
- Weymouth & Portland Borough Council
The respective lists of assets of community value for each of these councils are now closed to new entries and any new nominations will be considered by Dorset Council. Dorset Council will also be responsible for any assets of community value on these closed lists that are still within a five year time period since nomination.
Assets of Community Value List for the council formerly known as Purbeck District Council
The 'Community Right to Bid' allows an eligible community group to nominate an asset (building or land) of community value to be included on the council's Asset of Community Value List. If the council agrees to place an asset on the list, the landowner will be required to inform the council of his intention to dispose of the asset. Furthermore, there would be a temporary hold on the sale (moratorium) of the asset for up to six months to enable a community interest group(s) to put a bid together and secure funding to make an offer. The Community Right to Bid does not confer a right of first refusal or guarantee the community group's offer will be accepted.
Nominations under consideration
There are currently no nominations under consideration.
