Reasons for Decision

It is a valid community nomination

To be valid, a nomination can to be made by a “voluntary or community body”, as defined in Regulation 5 of the 2012 Regulations. The Society has made nomination as “a charity” (Regulation 5(1)(c)). The Charity Commission for England and Wales Register of Charities confirms that the Society is a registered charity (Registration no, 1146589).


To make a valid nomination the Society have a local connection. This is defined in Regulation 4(a), which states that a body will have a local connection with land in a local authority’s area if the body’s activities are wholly or partly concerned with the local authority’s area. The Society’s charitable objectives relate solely to Soho, which falls wholly within the Council’s area, so the local connection test is satisfied. The Property lies within the Society’s “area of benefit”, as set out in its governing document. Additionally, the Charity Commission confirms that the Society operates within the City of Westminster.
