Community Asset Transfer is about giving local people and community groups greater control in the future of their area and their community.
If local groups own or manage community buildings, such as community centres or village halls, it can give them a real asset base to support their development. It can also play a part in improving the skills of the people involved and encourage a stronger community spirit by bringing people from different backgrounds together to work towards a shared goal.
We have developed a Community Asset Transfer Strategy to give us a transparent framework to enable the transfer of building assets to the community, primarily through long-leasehold or in some circumstances freehold arrangements to voluntary or community organisations.
