Community Right to Bid

Under the Community Right to Bid local communities, voluntary groups and parish and town councils are able to identify land and buildings that provide a service in their community.

Community organisations can nominate these assets for inclusion on a register of assets of community value.

If an asset on the register comes up for sale, community organisations may have up to six months in which to raise capital and bid to buy the asset, before it can be sold on the open market. Examples of eligible assets include local shops, pubs, community centres, libraries, etc.

Assets of community value in South Kesteven can be found on our Community Asset Register below.

How to nominate an asset

Community groups have to meet certain criteria and provide supporting evidence to be eligible to nominate an asset.

Completed forms should be returned to us;
