ACV

In October 2013, the Hereford United Supporters Trust made an application to Herefordshire Council to list Edgar Street Athletic Ground as an Asset of Community Value under the Localism Act of 2011.

HUST Application Letter

Herefordshire Council accepted the application in December 2013, meaning the ground is now listed for the next five years. More details on the ACV process can be found on the Council website:

And also on the Supporters Direct website:

Trusts of a dozen clubs have already listed grounds as Assets of Community Value. Supporters Direct has a Pinterest of the current successful listings:
