Community Rights are a set of powers that give communities more control over their neighbourhood and its local amenities. For supporters’ trusts and other supporter groups the Community Right to Bid is of most relevance, as it provides opportunities to secure greater protection and potential community ownership of football stadia.
The paper provides a practical guide to how stadia can be listed as Assets of Community Value and provide community groups an opportunity to purchase if they are put up for sale.
The paper was produced in co-operation with Locality, the leading nationwide network of settlements, development trusts, social action centres and community enterprises. Locality assists people to work together to build stronger communities – giving hands-on support and promoting peer-to-peer exchange.
