Assets of community value

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

Under the 'community right to bid' (Localism Act, 2012) eligible groups:

  • can identify and nominate buildings and land (assets) that are of value to the local community
  • have a fair chance to make a bid to buy 'community assets' on the open market, if the owner decides to sell

You could use this 'right to buy' local community assets (private or public) such as:

  • village shop
  • community centre
  • library
  • children's centre
  • allotment
  • pub

To begin the application process please refer to:
