Community powers

1. Overview

Community Right to Bid allows communities to nominate land or buildings to be added to a local list of Assets of Community Value by us, and if the listed asset comes up for sale, local community groups can 'pause' the sale for a period of time in order to raise the finance to make a bid on those assets themselves.

Community Right to Challenge allows voluntary and community groups, charities, parish councils and our staff to bid to run one of our services where they believe they can do so differently and better. This may be the whole service or part of a service.
