The London Borough of Merton hereby gives notice that on 27th February 2018 it received a notification from the owner of an intention to dispose of Merton Hall, listed by the Council on the 22nd January 2018 as an Asset of Community Value under the Localism Act 2011.
The Council invites any eligible community interest group to express an interest to be treated as a potential bidder for the Asset by 26th April 2018
An eligible community interest group must have one or more of the following structures:
- A charity
- A community interest company
- A company limited by guarantee that is non- profit distributing
- An industrial and provident society that is non- profit distributing
The owner of the Asset may not dispose of the Asset during a six- week period starting from the date the Council received the notification from the owner of their intention to dispose of the Asset (the interim moratorium period) and ending on 26th April 2018.
During the interim moratorium period any eligible community interest group may request in writing to be treated as a potential bidder for the Asset. If the Council receives such a request, this will trigger the full moratorium period and the Council must inform the owner who may not then dispose of the Asset during this six- month period unless it is to a community interest group. If no community interest group requests to be treated as a potential bidder during the six-week interim moratorium period, the owner may proceed to dispose of the Asset.
It will be the responsibility of any bidder to arrange funding, seek to come to an arrangement with the owner and be responsible for all associated costs. The Council is unable to assist in negotiations or to provide any funding or other assistance.
Please send any request to be treated as a potential bidder no later than 5pm on the 26th April 2018 to:
Howard Joy Property Manager and Review Manager, London Borough of Merton, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, SM4 5DX Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Council will, as soon as practicable, notify the owner of any request it
receives. As stated above the deadline for receipt of requests is
26th April 2018.
