‘SAVE THE ODDIES’ UPDATE DECEMBER 2020

Posted: Fri, 04 Dec 2020 11:46 by Alison Perkins

Introducing 'Higham Community Enterprises'

We told you in August that we had been approached by Cartwrights with regard to our interest in the pub. We told them the community are interested in buying it and made an offer. They replied to say that they were prepared to discuss options although inevitably declining our first offer. In a positive move, Cartwrights have said they are willing to maintain negotiations with us about purchasing the pub, so we have continued to engage with them to try to secure a suitable agreement to buy the pub for the community. More »

Cartwrights also told us they were looking at a revised proposal and a new planning application that would be submitted during September. That has still not materialised but we are expecting them to do very something soon!

They did do another leaflet drop very soon after our discussions, indicating they had revised their initial plans although did not clearly indicate the scope of the plans. Their leaflet did not indicate any viable pub option or any information about the intentions for the surrounding area.

We know it continues to take time and progress appears to be slow but rest assured that we've been in touch with other groups where communities have bought pubs in very similar situations. The steering group are working towards being ready to seize our opportunity!

HIGHAM COMMUNITY ENTERPRISES LIMITED - SHARE PLEDGES

The Steering Group have led the campaign to save the pub as a local community hub. As part of this project are in the process of registering a Community Benefit Society called Higham Community Enterprises. We are now looking for members of the community to pledge to buy shares in the Society, which will formally make an offer for the pub. We will be sharing more about this very soon, once we have finalised the CBS share documents. This will allow the Steering Group to show the level of support we have when progressing the bid alongside seeking funding from other sources.

When the time comes, we will market our community share offer as widely as possible, with the structure of the CBS ensuring that local people will remain in control of the society and its pub.

Trading Standards have been informed of companies cold calling offering 'free surveys' to residents as part of the Green Homes Grant.

Following the Government launch of the Green Homes Grant, Trading Standards reminds residents to exercise caution if they are looking to use the grant for improvements to their homes. More »

The Green Homes Grant is an initiative to get homeowners to invest money in improving the energy-efficiency of their property whilst also giving the economy a much-needed boost. Homeowners and landlords can apply for a voucher to cover some of the costs for installing energy efficient improvements to their homes.

Consumers are able to obtain information about the process of obtaining the grant, how to apply and how to find a registered installer by searching on www.simpleenergyadvice.org.uk or calling 0800 444202

If you have any concerns about work that has been undertaken using the grant scheme, or if you have been approached by a suspicious trader operating in this field, you can report it to Trading Standards using the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133. » Less
