Assets of community value

Community right to bid

Following the Localism Act 2011 statutory provisions came into effect in 2012. The purpose of the legislation was to allows defined community groups, including Parish Councils, to ask the council to list assets of “Community Value”. In the event that the asset is listed and comes up for sale the legislation allows the community group 6 months to put together a bid to purchase. There is no obligation on the owner to sell to the community group.
