Communiy Assets Register
The Community Right to Bid is now in force. It aims to keep valued land and buildings such as your local pub, shop, library or football ground in community use.
The Community Right to Bid (Assets of Community Value in legislation) is one of a raft of new initiatives introduced in the Localism Act 2011
The Community Right to Bid allows communities and parish councils to nominate buildings or land for listing by the local authority as an asset of community value. An asset can be listed if its principal use furthers (or has recently furthered) their community’s social well-being or social interests (which include cultural, sporting or recreational interests) and is likely to do so in the future.
When a listed asset comes to be sold, a moratorium on the sale (of up to six months) may be invoked by community groups expressing an interest within the first 6 weeks, providing local community groups with a better chance to raise finance, develop a business and to make a bid to buy the asset on the open market.
