Assets of Community Value (Community Right to Bid)

This new Community Right allows defined community groups, including parish and town councils, to ask the local authority to list certain community assets (land and property) as being of value to the community.

If an asset is listed and then is put up for sale, the new right will give communities a six month option to acquire the asset. This gives communities an increased chance to save much loved shops, pubs or other local facilities.

Who is eligible to nominate an asset?

  • A properly designated neighbourhood forum
  • A Parish or Town Council
  • An unincorporated body whose members include at least 21 individuals, and which does not distribute any surplus to its members
  • A charity
  • A company listed by guarantee, which does not distribute any surplus to its members
  • A industrial and provident society which does not distribute any surplus to its members, or
  • A community interest company.
