Dear Mr Loudoun


Asset of Community Value Nomination/Notice of Sale
The Red Lion Public House – community Asset


With reference to our telephone conversation on Wednesday 11 September 2013, I can confirm that the Red Lion, Sidbury has been listed as a Community Asset with effect of 11 September 2013.

As the asset was already up for sale, the initial moratorium period starts with immediate effect.  As the Red Lion Campaign Group was the nominating body, you have a period of 6 weeks until 23 October 2013, to confirm to me in writing if they wish to be treated as a potential bidder.

If the Red Lion Campaign Group does decide to bid for the property, the full moratorium of 6 months, form 11 September 2013 takes effect.  During this period the owner can sell to the Red Lion Campaign group at any time.  The owner may continue to market and negotiate sales, but cannot enter into binding contract to sell the property until the 6 months has elapsed.  Once this period has passed or the Red Lion Campaign Group has withdrawn from the process, the owner can sell to whomever they wish at whatever price they wish. 

No further restriction of sale can be put on the property for 18 months directly following the period of the moratorium.



Yours sincerely
