This is a really interesting question and one my own community may well be asking in the near future so I look forward to replies and wish you every success in securing that place for your community. The advantage of registering the land as an ACV is that it buys you some time to rally the support and funding and if it is registered as a community asset could you then look at asset transfer? We have found that some councils are slow at helping the community to understand how much say they can have in safeguarding the places that are important and whilst some of it may be due to not wanting to lose the options open to them I’m sure some of it is simply because they dont know. The whole system here is in a state of flux right now.
