Application for Asset of Community Value
(ACV) RE: Banks's Stadium Site.
Tuesday 27th March 2018
This statement has been released as notification
that Walsall Supporters Society Limited, trading as
Walsall Football Supporters Trust has made an
application to Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council
for an Asset of Community Value to be placed on the
land upon which the Banks’s Stadium (and everything
within the boundaries of the site) stands, as we
believe the site to be of importance to the
community’s social well-being and/or social interest
(cultural, recreational and/or sporting).
Should the application be successful, the asset will
be listed by WMBC as an Asset of Community Value and
should it come up for sale on the open
market, the ACV will ensure that the community (or
groups within that community) is given a fair chance
to make a bid in order to purchase the asset for the
benefit of the community and for the future of
Walsall Football Club.
For the avoidance of doubt, a successful application
will only help to ‘improve’ the chances of
the asset being purchased by the community and does
not guarantee that the owner(s) ‘will’ agree
sell to the community.
The Trust Board feel that this is in the best
interests of Walsall Football Club Limited,
supporters of the club, the local community for
which the club serves and employees of the club
A further statement will be released once we have
received confirmation from WMBC regarding the
outcome of the application.
