Shop back on market

thisisoxfordshire: Alison Morris, Steve Lunn and Phillip Dove from Wolvercote Community Benefit Society outside The Post Box Alison Morris, Steve Lunn and Phillip Dove from Wolvercote Community Benefit Society outside The Post Box

The protection for a corner shop which is listed as a community asset ended yesterday.

The Post Box in Wolvercote has been given community asset status by Oxford City Council, which means that when the seller put it up for sale last year a six-month period of protection began.

This meant only community group the Wolvercote Community Benefit Society could buy the building but the period of protection has now ended without a deal being done and anyone can buy the shop.

Going back to the Oxford Mail last September...

Quote:- "A member of the group’s steering committee, Rosamund Road resident Steve Lunn, said the owner of the shop is currently asking for £400,000, but that the community group would not be able to pay that much. "


It seems utterly bizarre that a group can demand that a property be deemed to be "Asset of Community Value" in order that they are given a 6 month window to raise money for it...

And near enough in parallel publish that they would not be able to pay the asking price.
