One of our latest projects is to identify the buildings and open spaces in the area which are most valued by the local community. We are keen to take advantage of the new legal protection which has been introduced under the “community right to bid”.
Where local assets are included on a register held by the local council this means they can’t be sold off without the local community being given time to come up with some alternative proposals.
We’ve already identified the cricket pavilion and the fire station as early contenders. Neither is currently owned by the community and both are at risk.
We’ve included our ideas on a website gathering examples across the country and you can see the fire station here and the cricket pavilion here.
Let us know which other buildings or open space you think we should be campaigning for. Contact us at the usual address: firstname.lastname@example.org
