Great Easton parish
The Swan Inn, The Endway, Great Easton CM6 2HG
The decision has been made not to enter The Swan, Great Easton, onto Uttlesford District Council's list of Assets of Community Value (ACV), for the reasons outlined below:
As the building is not currently in use, this nomination was assessed against the Localism Act paragraph 88 part 2:
a) there is a time in the recent past when an actual use of the building or other land that was not an ancillary use furthered the social wellbeing or interests of the local community
In the recent past, i.e. pre the Covid pandemic, The Swan was in use as a public house. There is some evidence of seasonal and special events. However, there is insufficient evidence of regular usage that 'furthers' social wellbeing and social interests of the local community', that is not an ancillary use.
b) and, it is realistic to think that there is a time in the next five years when there could be non-ancillary use of the building or other land that would further (whether or not in the same way as before) the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community
It is realistic to think that the property will come back into use as a public house, as it has been purchased for just that purpose. However, whether The Swan, under its new ownership, provides facilities and hosts activities that go beyond the sale of drinks and food to 'further' the social wellbeing or interests of the local community is yet to be established.
