Asset of Community Value

Localism Act Part 5 Chapter 3 – Community Right to Bid

Image result for assets of community value bristol

Community Right to Bid was introduced under the Localism Act 2011.  The Act requires local authorities to maintain and publish the lists of assets of community value which have been nominated by the local community.  The lists will be for both the successful and unsuccessful nominations and each asset will stay on the list for a period of 5 years.

Owner notice of intent to sell.

When successfully nominated assets come up for sale, the Act then gives community interest groups the time to submit a request to the local authority to be considered as a bidder, and time to develop a business case and secure funding to support the bid to put the asset on the open market.

Moratorium period.

Interim moratorium period – This is a six week period from the date the Council accepted receipt of the owner’s notice of intent to dispose of the asset on the open market.  During this period eligible community interest groups can express an interest in being considered as a potential bidder by sending in a written request to the Council.

Full moratorium period – This is a six month period from the date the Council accepted receipt of the owner’s notice of intent to dispose of the asset on the open market.  It will only apply if an eligible community interest group sends in a written request to express be considered as a potential bidder.

After the moratorium period – either the six weeks if there has been no community interest, or the full 6 months – the owner will be free to dispose of the property to whomever they choose and at whatever price, and no further moratorium will apply for an 18 month protected period.  The owner does not have to sell the asset to a community group.
