THE FORMER HENRY JENKINS PUBLIC HOUSE

The recent application by the 'Save The Henry Jenkins Group' to have the property listed as an Asset of Community Value was successful but the owner has subsequently requested that the decision be reviewed, which Harrogate Council have to do no later than August 29. He has also given notice on July 5 of his intention to dispose of the property and an interim moratorium lasting for six weeks applies, during which time the Save the Henry Jenkins group have to make a written request to be treated as a potential bidder. If they do so, the moratorium period would then be extended to 6 months during which time the group have to make a formal bid. The owner cannot sell to any one else other than the group during this period, but he does not have to accept their offer and at the end of the six months he can sell to anyone else at whatever price he chooses.
