Community Rights - Localism

Community Rights - Localism

 

The new Community Rights give local people and groups a greater say about what happens to local amenities, how local services are delivered or how new development is planned.

 

The new Community Rights give local people and groups a greater say about what happens to local amenities, how local services are delivered or how new development is planned.

 

Three of the Community Rights have already come into effect in 2012:

 

• Neighbourhood Planning: giving communities more say about what can be built in their area

 

• Community Right to Build: giving communities the right to build small-scale, site-specific projects without going through the normal planning application process

 

• Community Right to Challenge:  giving communities the right to bid to run local services

 

and the fourth Right is expected to come into effect shortly:

 

• Community Right to Bid: giving communities the right to bid to buy and take over the running of local assets that are important to them.
