THE FORMER HENRY JENKINS PUBLIC HOUSE

Under the Asset of Community Value rules the owner gave notice on July 5 2017 of his intention to dispose of the property and a six month moratorium period commenced from that date during which time he could not sell to any one else except the Henry Jenkins Community Co-op. In December the group made an offer which was not accepted, but which remains on the table. The moratorium period ended on January 4. The owner has however recently indicated that he has sold a section of the property to a third party. This follows the dismissal of the appeal against the planning decision to refuse re-development of the site for housing made earlier in the year. The Inspector's Decision in full is available here:   DECISION 3184236 .pdf

The HJCC are undertaking an Opinion Survey to determine support for their proposals within the wider community and to ascertain the willingness of residents to pledge financial assistance in purchasing and renovating the building but it is unlikely that the results will be known for some time.

Further information and updates are available on the Henry Jenkins website:  ://www.thehenryjenkins.com/
