Lewisham Council - Right to bid for assets of community value
Menu

Right to nominate assets of community value

An eligible local voluntary or community group can ask us to list certain assets as being of value to the community.

The right

This new right under the Localism Act 2011 came into effect on 21 September 2012. It means that an eligible local voluntary or community group can ask us to list certain assets as being of value to the community by making a nomination.

If an asset is listed and then comes up for sale, the new right will give an eligible community interest group that wishes to be treated as a potential bidder to purchase the asset 6 months to put together a bid to buy it.

This right is intended to give communities an increased chance to save shops, pubs or other local facilities which are of community value.

The process

The regulations published by the Government provide more information on the right and how it might be exercised.

Who to contact in the Council

An application form to apply to list an asset as being of community value is available, which should be returned to Legal Services at the address below, marked for the attention of Clare Bruce.

Support available and other considerations

Additional information and support on the use of this right is available from the My Community Rights website.
