Community Right to Bid

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

The Council maintains a List of Assets of Community Value, which includes 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 is given time to prepare a bid and can attempt to buy the asset themselves. The initiative enables local residents to form community enterprises and helps preserve the facilities that matter most to them.
