The Punch Bowl Public House at Churchtown

Community value asset Published Thursday, 13 June 2019

The Punch Bowl Public House at Churchtown is on our list of assets of community value. We have received notification from the owners wish to sell the property.

Under the Localism Act 2011 there is now a period of time during which community interest groups can make a written request to the council to be treated as a potential bidder.

This request allows community interest groups to delay the sale by up to six months, providing additional time to raise funds and put together a bid to buy the asset.

These rights do not restrict the sale price or who the owner of a listed asset can sell their property to and they do not give community organisations a right of first refusal. Requests must be made by 17 July 2019 and can be made by emailing or in writing to Roy Saunders, Democratic Services Manager, Wyre Council, Civic Centre, Breck Road Poulton-le-Fylde, FY6 7PU.
