To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what estimate his Department has made of the number of football stadiums in the UK nominated for designation as assets of community value under the Localism Act 2011 that have been judged by a local authority not to meet the test for being such an asset.

The Department does not collect information or provide estimates on the number of assets of community value unsuccessful nominated.

Decisions on whether a nomination satisfies the statutory test set out in the Localism Act 2011 are for local authorities to determine. In February 2017 an asset count undertaken by Locality on behalf of the department identified 4,307 assets of community value in England. Information published by Supports Direct has identified 30 football stadiums as Assets of Community Value in England.
