On 30th August HBC informed the HJCP that their application to have the ACV reinstated on the ‘eastern-annexe’ of the Henry Jenkins had been unsuccessful. The letter stated that we have provided insufficient evidence to prove that:
a) That primary use of the building in the recent past furthers the social well-being or social interests of the local community
b) That it is realistic to think that now or in the next five years there could continue to be primary use of the building to further the social well-being or social interests of the local community.
There can be no appeal against this decision but, with new evidence and submissions, a re-application can be made. The Management Committee is considering the options.
