Community Right to Bid

Village scene

The Community Right to Bid is a government policy that gives local communities the opportunity to recognise and 'pause' the sale of land and buildings considered to be of importance to the community.

The Council maintains an Assets of Community Value register, which lists the land and buildings that have been successfully accepted following nomination. If any of the assets on the register are put up for sale, the community are given time to prepare a bid and can attempt to buy the asset themselves. The initiative aims to see local residents preserving the facilities that matter most to them by forming community enterprises.
