Learn more about Community Asset Transfer (CAT) and Community Right to Bid

The Council’s Community Asset Transfer (CAT) policy is designed to give eligible organisations the opportunity to take over ownership of buildings that the Council has deemed as surplus to the organisation’s needs.

Under the Localism Act 2011 the Community Right to Bid is intended to help keep assets of community value in the local area.

This might be a local library, community centre or local pub that is threatened with closure or sale.

To support this process the Council maintains a list of assets that have been nominated as having community value. When a listed asset becomes available for sale or change in ownership, the act gives community groups the time to put together a bid and to raise the capital needed to bid to buy the asset when it is available on the open market.
