Community Right To Bid
Community Right to Bid is a scheme which gives community groups a fairer chance to prepare and bid to buy community buildings and facilities that are important to them. The Right covers private and public assets.
Local community and voluntary organisations, neighbourhood forums and parish councils can identify land and buildings which provide an important service in their community. They can nominate these to be placed on athat we keep.
How Community Right to Bid works
If land or property on this list comes up for sale, an interested group or groups have up to six months to raise money and bid to buy this, before it is put up for sale on the open market.
This does not restrict who the owner can sell their land or property to, or at what price. The owner does not have to give the right of first refusal to community organisations - it just gives the organisation time to raise money to buy it.
