Community Right to Bid

A Community can use the Community Right to Bid to ‘pause’ the sale of buildings or land you care about such as your local pub, shop, library or football ground. It gives your community time to develop a bid to buy it.

It is important to nominate land and buildings to be part of a register of ‘assets of community value’. If something on this register is offered for sale, you then have up to six months to prepare a bid.

Read our guide to Understanding the Community Right to Bid, and contact us through the advice service to access support and to apply for pre-feasibility and feasibility grants.

What could the new Right to Bid be used for?

Your community could use the Community Right to Bid to help save your local library, pub or football ground as well as:

  • village shops
  • former schools
  • sports centres
  • open space
  • outmoded utility buildings
  • These might currently be owned by your local authority or another public body, but they could also be owned by a private company or an individual.
